Information about the project
E- Goverment Program
The Saudi eGovernment Program "Yesser" is keen to support the change that accompanies the implementation of eGovernment projects. Such change requires soft skills in addition to technical competencies to move forward successfully. In line with that “Yesser” has launched multiple programs under its Capacity Building and Development Initiative. This initiative aims to build and increase competencies in information technology in order to deal with the implementations with high degree of skills and professionalism. As of today (January 2017), over 44,000 government employees have been trained, ranging from basic computer usage to professional IT certifications and workshops for CIOs
