Home Engineering Engineering and Technology Talent for Innovation and Knowledge-Based Economies: Competencies, Leadership, and a Roadmap for Implementation
Nationals Versus Non-nationals
Descriptive statistics showed that the attitude of both Qataris and non-Qataris is positive for all skills. The means of importance of skills currently and in 2030 are around 4 ± which is close to “agree”, and the means of satisfaction level are between 3 + which is close to “neutral”, indicating that they have low satisfaction level with being equipped with such skills (see Appendix I).
Importance currently: Results showed no statistically significant difference between both groups except in entrepreneurship in favour of non-Qataris (see Table 7.19).
Satisfaction: Qataris showed higher level of satisfaction of such skills with higher means than non-Qataris and no statistically significant difference except in multidisciplinary knowledge in favour of Qataris (see Table 7.19).
Importance by 2030: Also, results showed no statistically significant difference between both groups except in management and ILeadership in favour of non-Qataris as well (see Table 7.19).
