The fact that Dubai, the most populated city in the United Arab Emirates, has become an exquisite destination, both as a business and tourism center, due to its luxurious attractions, is no longer a secret. Nowadays, this city is identified with locations such as Burj Khalifa, Palm Jumeirah or The World Islands. However, having an outstanding infrastructure in place is not nearly enough and, in order to thrive, all entities, from small business to large services sector, must periodically assess their performance and take the measures needed in order to maintain or boost their results.
