Vision and Mission

Managing Director’s Message
After many decades of working with mega projects in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, it came to my attention that there is a vital need for the practice of project management profession in the Kingdom and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) as well.
With the Kingdom’s new initiatives to deliver projects across various sectors, Takamul’s main role is to support delivery of these projects, leading to our Country’s social, educational and economic prosperity.
Saudi Arabia is not yet realized to its fullest potential, we at Takamul are keen on raising awareness of key project management practices to ensure successful project delivery, while enhancing client project returns.
Takamul aims to fill a significant gap, by being the first fully Saudi based project management consultancy firm, linking international experience with local knowhow, while maintaining our focus on local aspects and values of our Saudi culture and communities.
With the rising demand for projects across the Kingdom, we believe that our experienced and dedicated team will allow for both public and private sectors various projects to be delivered on time, within budget and to the utmost satisfaction of the client; aligning ourselves with the client’s goals, while always understanding their unique requirements and needs.
