Politicians reject global reform: impossible and too political. They claim low level reform is not worth the bother. It will not yield significant results. Akram proposes a pragmatic method that will yield results visible to the citizen. It is based on identifying common "knots" that can easily be re-engineered.
Akram Najjar is a graduate of AUB in Physics and Mathematics (1966). By 1969, he completed a degree in Electronic Engineering in University of Hertfordshire, UK. His professional life was spent in Information Technology and organizational management. He spent a lot of time on reengineering business and public sector processes. His work as a Senior IT Advisor with the Ministry of Administrative Reform gave him a deeper outlook on possible solutions for reforming the Lebanese public sector.
