A. In addition to the exposure to so many Companies and Corporations
I worked very closely
with Mr. Hayel M. Ibrahim who spent his Coop work experience in SAVOLA,
headquarter in Jeddah. I gave him the
assignment of studying Afia and Mazola Oil in a comparative manner. He did a good job and submitted a Coop report
entitled: "Saudi Vegetable Oil & Ghee Company (SAVOLA) - Comparative
Study Between Afia and Mazola Products".
Dr. Sami Baroom of SAVOLA attended the student's presentation on
Analyzing the problems faced by Saudi ARAMCO in recruiting for remote location jobs in remote areas.
Work Stress in ARAMCO Materials Control Department was also studied during this period. Causes of stress were identified, and sources of job stress were studied. Symptoms of stress were examined, and a Western view of stress was compared with the Islamic View which concentrates on Quran, Faith, Prayers, Fasting and Patience. A questionnaire was designed, distributed and analyzed. It was found that "Rapport with Management," & "Job Pressure," is considered the first and second sources of job stress respectively in that department at Saudi ARAMCO.
This project was a very useful for all three parties. The Company, the graduating co-op student, and myself as well. It gave me a rich experience and an actual example to be used and discussed in my classes at both graduate and undergraduate levels.
1991-92 SAUDI ARAMCO:
The issues of Motivation and Job Satisfaction were studied in Saudi ARAMCO. A survey Study was designed and distributed to some ARAMCO employees to measure their motivation and find out whether their needs are met or not. Another questionnaire to measure job satisfaction was distributed to 150 employees out of which 91 was received back. The study showed that 48% of the respondents claimed to have low satisfaction, which is an anomaly given the reputation of the company.
1987-90 ISLAMIC DEVELOPMENT BANK:
An International high
commission was formed to constitute a task force made of four Scholars from
1986-87 SAUDI COMPANIES:
Worked in a team to examine and study the actual practices in a number of Saudi companies in implementing various methods of performance appraisal and evaluation. We studied the goals and objectives of performance evaluation, who actually does the evaluation? How often the evaluation is performed? What different methods are used? And the different factors that influence the process of performance evaluation. The result of this experience was Published in Arab Journal of Administration plus a rich experience on our part regarding this important function of Human Resource Management.
1985-86 SAUDI ARAMCO:
I studies the Human Resource Planning at ARAMCO and worked very closely with a student who spent his 28-week coop experience in ARAMCO and wrote a report on the subject. We examined various issues such as the demand of employment required, the employment planning process, analyzing the internal and external manpower supply, forecasting human resource needs and management estimation.
1982-85 SAUDI BANKS & GOV'T AGENCIES:
I spent so far four years as a Chairman of the Management Development Program at KFUPM. I made many contacts and visits to Saudi Banks, Companies and Government Agencies. I worked closely with SCECO East, ARAMCO, Jubail Companies and Saudi Navy and Airline in the training field, and human resource management various functions.
The location of KFUPM
I consulted for
Al-Raddadi Group in
As a University Professor, I try to keep myself up to date with current developments in the field by reading new books and articles on Management. I am a regular reader of:
Accounting, Commerce & Finance: The Islamic Perspective Journal
American Journal of Islamic Social Sciences
Harvard Business Review
Human Resource Focus (formerly Personnel)
Sloan Management Review
Wall Street Journal
And other titles as well.
The above industrial experience helped me a great deal to integrate what I learned to courses at the graduate MBA level as well as the undergraduate B.Sc. level.
Practical issues observed such as: Recruiting, Selection, Training, Career Development, Performance Evaluation, Incentives, Benefits, Safety and Health and compensation are of great value to the Human Resource Courses MGT 525 and MGT 401. They provide rich experience and practical and actual examples to supplement the theoretical frame of reference of the course.
Other issues such as Planning, Organizing, Communicating, Controlling, Motivating, Job Satisfaction, Stress, Power, and Coordination contribute a great deal to the subjects covered in MGT 501 and MGT 301 "Principles of Management". They provide practical examples and real experience to go hand-in-hand with the theories covered in the textbooks. Our students, both at the MBA level and the undergraduate level love to hear examples from the real Saudi working environment. Their texts, examples, and cases are all from the American environment. I, myself, have noted a big improvement on my part as a result of such good industrial experience.

II. TEACHING PHILOSOPHY AND INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES
1. STATEMENT BY FACULTY MEMBER: TEACHING
A. Pedagogical Philosophy
As an instructor, I care very much about the well being of my students and attempt to inspire them, while maintaining a healthy sense of humor in the classroom. The student evaluations and comments are witness to this proclamation. Course design is both exciting and frustrating because it forces one's overall philosophy and objectives to come face to face with the reality of available teaching materials. My objectives are quite straightforward. I have designed my graduate, and undergraduate, courses to force students to integrate and possibly simplify the functional knowledge and skills that they have acquired in their basic courses, and to develop their competence in the solution of "real world" general management problems. My preferred method of integrating a concept into the course is to have the students spontaneously "develop" it during a class discussion. I would then formalize it with a reading or perhaps a 10-15 minute "mini lecture" at the end of class. I would reinforce the idea through re-use in subsequent classes. I find this approach is more exciting for students, and hence more effective, than lecturing and formally teaching a concept and then using a case to "demonstrate" it. I use my class exclusively for discussion, as well as group presentations and group work and written reports so that the whole class will be involved in repetitive preparation and debate, to develop their skills and to deeply embed the concepts. This is specially true for my graduate courses which I taught more than undergraduates. I normaly use the concept of "Andragogy", which heavily relies on the student’s participation, contribution to discussion, and requires them to prepare the material and cases in advance. This method persuades and motivates students to think independently, express opinion and stand on their own feet share experiences and ideas rather than rely totally on the professor.
Most of my students (graduate as well as undergraduate) appreciate this approach, along with my sympathetic fashion and teaching strategy and have confessed to its effectiveness by various means, such as letters, and comments (see Teaching Evaluations and Students Comments sections). They often admitted that my style has been very effective in motivating them to accomplish a great deal and reach the established goals and objectives they put for themselves..
B. Strategy for Teaching Management:
In my teaching endeavour, I have often exercised innovativeness, creativity and utilized the most recent and up-to-date material and technology. I developed effectiveness and efficiency in the development and use of innovative methods in teaching such as computer aided instruction. I developed guidance and leadership in student activities inside and outside the classroom. I gave so many lectures to student rovers and student social clubs in their activities room. I have developed and adopted the Power Point Presentation and The Remote Teaching (internet, blackboard and WebCT) methods for Management courses I taught.. These methods utilize the interaction and participation among the students and between students and instructor. I iintegrated video tapes and short films into the management curriculum at both levels: graduate and undergraduate. This integration enriches students' understanding of management as well as providing them an opportunity to see how a business works in the real world. I utilized outside reading from current periodical journals and news papers to enhance classroom discussion and update students on the subject matters. I adopted up-to-date textbooks for graduate and undergraduate courses that give students the opportunities to develop skills, knowledge, and experience in using managerial decision making models. Using end of chapter short cases, discussion questions in all management courses to insure that the concepts and methods are understood. I normally carry the normal teaching load; and even when I assumed administrative assignments (Chairman of MDP (1982-90); manager of a unit and director of CEMS at RI (1998-2004) I did not leave teaching at all. Finally, I normally invite top nauch business people to be guest speakers in my classes at both levels.
I took almost every short courses offered by Deanship of Academic Development (DAD) in the area of good teaching and critical thinking as well as good valuation as a critical part of good teaching. I am proud to mention that I tried to incorporate everything I learned in my classes the same semester or the next one. Not only that, but I also took so many computer courses to help.
C. Teaching Preferences
During my academic career, I have taught many basic and advanced management courses at graduate and undergraduate levels. In the last six years, I taught management courses at both levels once a year because of administrative assignment in the Research Institute. My teaching interests in the future will most likely remain focussed on all management courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
2. LISTING OF COURSES TAUGHT
My teaching activities covered management courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels. My teaching at the undergraduate, graduate and various coaching seminars has adhered to high standards of pedagogy providing an up-to-date education for students. The list of courses taught and dates; number of students are stated in pages ( ) in the resume; it provides more information about my teaching activities.
3. RESULTS OF COURSE EVALUATION QUESTIONNAIRES
I received good ratings from the students and excellent complimentary comments about my way of teaching and interest in students. (Course evaluations are provided upon a written request.).
4. TEACHING INNOVATIONS AND NEW COURSE DEVELOPMENTS
· I have developed and adopted the Power Point Presentation and The Remote Teaching (internet and first class) methods. These methods utilize the interaction and participation among the students and between students and instructor.
· I have used in the past Black Board as a method of communicating with student. Now I am shifting to WebCT and took a couple of short course and seminar on it.
· Below is a comprehensive list of all Courses taught at the Graduate and Undergraduate levels
