Shaikh Hamdan Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum (Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Dubai Future Foundation), has just met with the heads of Dubai government entities to discuss the next step for the Dubai 10x initiative.
This project ‘The Dubai 10x”, symbolising experimental and out-of-the-box future-oriented exponential thinking, was launched by His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, at the World Government Summit -earlier this week.
This initiative also sets the government of Dubai on a mission to be ahead of other cities by 10 years.
“The future belongs to those who effect radical changes, not those who make minor, gradual improvements. The future will not be as patient with us as the present. Today, I am calling on all government leaders and employees to embrace disruptive innovation and find new, creative and truly disruptive approaches and technologies to delivering their mission rather than incremental and minor improvements. We are a young and energetic government who wants to be leaders in disruptive innovation and technology” said Shaikh Hamdan.
He also added that succeeding in becoming the best government in the world requires everyone to adopt a culture of creative disruption. Thus, not only allowing Dubai’s tools and systems to be enhanced, but also “our mindsets to be revamped, upgraded and open to embracing disruption”.
