From Desert to Destiny: Saudi Organizational Leadership
Within the Saudi Arabian Cultural Context

by

Mark Charles Bechtold

Abstract

This qualitative study examines the ways in which Saudi Arabian organizational leaders and

followers describe their experience of the knowledge, attitudes, and practices of

organizational leadership within the context of the Saudi Arabian culture. A categorical

content analysis of 15 organizational leader and follower responses indicates that effective

Saudi Arabian organizational leaders are able to adopt culturally sensitive leadership styles

and organizational development approaches that serve to enable, develop, and empower

Saudi Arabian employees. The key themes informing this leadership style include

relationships, leader-follower roles, the principles of Islam, and governmental support for

business. A literature review on organizational leadership, Middle East Arab culture, Saudi

Arabian culture, Middle East Arab organizational leadership, and Saudi Arabian

organizational leadership serves as a basis for this study.

Key words: Organizational leadership, Arab organizational leadership, Saudi Ar

ABSTRACT

This current study investigated the relationship between employees’ commitment and total quality management (TQM) in the public healthcare sector
of Saudi Arabia. Furthermore moderating effect of knowledge management (KM) on the relationship between employees’ commitment and TQM has
been examined. The core of the paper showed the effectiveness of public health sectors employee’s commitment to improve the TQM. Quantitative
methodology for data analyses were employed to test the hypothesized model. A total of 259 questionnaires were distributed among the respondents,
out of which 165 questionnaires were returned and only 154 were found useful in sense of completeness and usefulness for further analysis. The results
of the analyses confirmed that there is significant direct effect of employees’ commitment to improve the TQM and KM moderates the relationship
between employees’ commitment and TQM.

1. INTRODUCTION

All over the globe and in most countries whether developed
countries or emerging countries, healthcare represented mainly by
hospitals remains an important sector providing basic and advanced
health services to the people (Al-Adham, 2004). Hospitals comprise
the largest expenditure category of the health system in developing
or emerging countries. Therefore, despite the idea that their roles
are seen as integral part in the health system and these roles are
very well-recognized, hospitals are often the target of improvement
and reform in terms of quality, efficiency, equity and their servi

Delphi-based consensus study into a framework
of community resilience to disaster

Abstract Disasters cannot be prevented but their impacts can be mitigated through
adapted disaster management strategies. Several studies confirm that community resilience

is a significant factor in disaster management. Saudi Arabia is (a) increasingly exposed to

disasters, as reflected in recent events, and (b) lacks a credible disaster management

strategy. This paper aims to develop a framework of community resilience to disaster in

Saudi Arabia. A three-round Delphi study is conducted using a local and an international

panel of experts with in-depth knowledge in the wide field of disaster management.

General dimensions and criteria for consideration are derived from the academic literature.

The latter are used by the expert panel as a starting point to achieve consensus on a

framework of community resilience to disasters, focused on six resilience dimensions:

social; economic; physical and environmental; governance; health and well-being; and

information and communication. A total of 62 criteria are identified. Fifty-seven of these

criteria achieved consensus in Round 2. An additional five criteria reached consensus in the

third round. The resulting community resilience framework involves seven to fourteen

criteria in each of the six identified dimensions.
