Background material by Professor Omar Hasan Kasule Sr. for Year 1 Semester 1 Med PPSD session on 22nd October 2008


Social development starts with selection of a spouse and starting a family. It involves learning to develop social networks and taking social responsibilities in the community.

The factors behind professional success are a good basic education, postgraduate training, apprenticeship to a good mentor, setting goals and a time frame to achieve them, adopting a growth strategy, delivering quality results in the work and not seeking cheap publicity. Professional networking involves identification of strategic partners for mutual benefit and not manipulating or exploitation. The networking starts within smaller circles and extends to the wider professional and social circles. Nurturing contacts is very important otherwise they get lost.

Economic empowerment should have the objective of eventual self-employment. A long-term development plan must be made. Putting side some of the monthly earnings for asset accumulation and investment ensures financial stability and expansion of the Muslim economic base.

The performance gap potential and actual performance due deficiency of practical leadership and management skills can be covered by on the job training. Training is an investment in people, the most valuable organizational resource, and has a very high future pay-off in terms of better performance, productivity, and growth. Rapid advances in technology make skills obsolete and necessitate continuous retraining to maintain effectiveness. Training is needed for all skills. The mission of STP is to close the performance gap.
