Ali Al Sudany

Ali Al-Sudany is Assistant Professor of Strategic Management at the University of Baghdad, National Expert and Benchmarker at the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and a consultant at TRANSTEC, a European consulting firm specialising in provision of technical advice to developing countries.

As a John Smith Fellow, Ali will use his extensive expertise in business management to create structures for the provision of support to Iraqi small and medium size enterprises (SMEs). Ali believes that well-functioning SMEs are integral to the promotion and further development of good governance and contribute to strengthening of the rule of law in Iraq. Ali’s Plan will include setting up an Advisory Board providing advice on management, marketing and human resources in direct relation to Iraqi SMEs, with a special focus on those small companies which create employment opportunities for young people.
