This program supports healthcare executives who are taking leading roles in the transformation of Saudi Arabia’s healthcare system as targeted in Vision 2030 and presently being implemented. It addresses the needs of executives taking on new private and corporatized leadership roles and responsibilities.

Using theory, cases, and state of the art evidence, we learn how to shape organizations and engage people for enhanced performance, from a value-based healthcare perspective.

The course covers international best practices and connects them to current developments in Saudi Arabia.

Participants are expected to bring their own cases and advance on mini-projects to apply and discuss the learning.

"We have embarked on a fundamental transformation of our healthcare system.  

Our country needs it.  Our people deserve it."

– HRH Prince Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud
