The paper presents a qualitative case study to determine the strategies the Dubai government could potentially develop and implement to enhance its current performance in the human resource (HR) arena. The paper provides a sample literature review and discusses the planned methodology.

Literature Review

From the Paper:

"In the article: "A strategic approach to training," published in The Journal of Government Financial Management, the unnamed writer stresses that in management training, one needs to initially recognize that "the content of the materials and expertise of the instructor are fundamental elements. But of greater importance is the outcome of the training" (Anonymous 2005), 1). John P. McGillicuddy (2004), Office of the County Manager for Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, U.S., asserts in the article, "'Imagine,'... 'Imagine no departments...,'" that future governments will only direct a few, if any, departments. Rather than the outmoded hierarchies, McGillicuddy predicts, highly trained employee service teams "empowered to make decisions and provide services," possessing pertinent information for making informed choices and achieving goals, will be in charge of departments such as HR. In this scenario where team members are supported by technology, all across and through employee teams and functions, collaboration will constitute the norm.
"Utilizing the team oriented approach, the primary concept, the researcher suggests for enhancing Dubai's current HR practice, enables the employee to choose the type of work arena that will potentially provide him/her the most rewarding experiences. As employees will need to collaborate effectively with a myriad of various people, this strategy will compel workers to develop exceptional interpersonal skills "possibly with ongoing changes in the roster of team members" (McGillicuddy 2004, 2)."
