DEV is not just a word for us—it is a set of values that drive our team.

Diversify

In re­cent years, re­search has re­vealed that there is a tre­mend­ous pos­it­ive ef­fect of di­verse teams in busi­ness en­vir­on­ments. It is proved that teams with di­verse back­grounds are more likely to con­stantly re­view facts and re­main ob­ject­ive. Di­verse teams in busi­ness en­vir­on­ments help team mem­bers to dis­cov­er their own po­ten­tial, im­prove their way of think­ing, and en­hance the level of cre­ativ­ity.

Sci­ent­ists say that di­verse teams may out­per­form ho­mo­gen­ous ones in de­cision mak­ing be­cause they pro­cess in­form­a­tion more care­fully. Thus, try­ing to in­crease the di­versity in work­places is not just a hu­man re­sources, cool-look­ing policy—now it is a smart busi­ness de­cision.

As AG’z DEV, be­ing totally aware of this po­ten­tial, we cre­ated a pro­fes­sion­al team of di­verse mind­sets, cul­tures, eth­ni­cit­ies and back­grounds to be able to reach our highest po­ten­tial as busi­ness de­vel­op­ment pro­fes­sion­als.

As a res­ult, and be­sides AG’z team ex­pert­ise and the high level of ad­apt­a­tion to new busi­ness con­cepts and tech­no­lo­gies, our di­versity of brains and back­grounds bring in cre­at­ive solu­tions to our cli­ents’ busi­nesses.

Di­versity brings open-minded­ness, and open-minded­ness brings cre­ativ­ity.

Evolve

To stay com­pet­it­ive, it is cru­cial for busi­nesses to con­tin­ue to in­nov­ate and evolve. In the age of di­git­al­iz­a­tion and vir­tu­al­iz­a­tion, to boost their ca­pa­city and com­pete with rivals, busi­nesses have to fol­low up with the in­nov­a­tion and trans­form them­selves, their products, or ser­vices, ac­cord­ingly. If your or­gan­iz­a­tion falls be­hind the 21st-cen­tury evol­u­tion, ig­nores in­nov­a­tion, and misses the pace of con­stant change, there is a big chance that you will get lost and scattered among the born-in-the-cloud com­pan­ies in the next few years.

So, where do you start? What should be your first steps?

Ac­cord­ing to re­searches and ex­per­i­ments, there are four pil­lars of change you need to take ac­tion about:

  • Pro­cess op­tim­iz­a­tion
  • Product/ser­vice di­git­al­iz­a­tion
  • Em­ploy­ee en­gage­ment
  • Cus­tom­er ex­per­i­ence en­hance­ment

Al­ways op­er­at­ing in beta mode, we em­brace con­tinu­ous learn­ing, self-im­prove­ment, per­son­al growth and life les­sons. The best ad­vice from us to our cli­ents would be to ini­tially learn to ac­cept evol­u­tion and stay in beta mode. As AG’z, we part­ner with our cli­ents by ab­sorb­ing their needs and re­design­ing their pri­or­it­ies to catch up with 21st-cen­tury busi­ness world.

The only con­stant in life is change.

Virtualize

If you’re launch­ing a star­tup or a small or me­di­um-sized busi­ness, you may not have ac­cess to ex­per­i­enced and highly qual­i­fied pro­fes­sion­als to be hired in-house due to time, budget, or oth­er con­straints. You might also suf­fer from a vast amount of daily op­er­a­tions to deal with, leav­ing no time for stra­tegic level tasks as­so­ci­ated with busi­ness growth and profit.

With the di­git­al age, in­nov­at­ive small and me­di­um-sized com­pan­ies star­ted to look for more ef­fi­cient solu­tions to their work­force needs. As the brand-new work­ing class of the new world was born in the age of di­git­al­iz­a­tion and star­ted to get in­volved in the busi­ness world, we real­ized that they are more likely to choose their jobs where they can work more ef­fi­ciently and loc­a­tion-free. This unique gen­er­a­tion car­ries en­tre­pren­eur­i­al and tech-lov­ing spir­it with a unique life­style and is more likely to fol­low glob­al trends rather than na­tion­al trends. With the help of ad­vanced tech­no­logy and sys­tem­at­ic on­line re­port­ing sys­tems, vir­tu­al em­ploy­ees and com­pany own­ers can now work in a more hustle-free, cost and time-ef­fi­cient en­vir­on­ment where tech­no­logy boosts ef­fi­ciency.

Hir­ing vir­tu­al pro­fes­sion­als dif­fers from work­ing with freel­an­cers, as a vir­tu­al pro­fes­sion­al is like an in-house em­ploy­ee with a lower cost. A vir­tu­al em­ploy­ee can work for you re­motely in a sys­tem­at­ic way, that’s sup­por­ted by tech­no­logy, as a ded­ic­ated part of your team.

As AG’z, we em­brace vir­tu­al­iz­a­tion not only in our own con­sult­ing and hir­ing busi­ness pro­cesses, but we also of­fer this op­por­tun­ity to our cli­ents. We help our cli­ents to em­brace the ad­vant­ages of vir­tu­al work force, as, in this di­git­al era, more and more busi­nesses are cre­at­ing vir­tu­al teams that work re­motely.

Vir­tu­al­iz­a­tion is the ul­ti­mate ef­fi­ciency boost­er.

Visualize

Did you know that more data has been cre­ated in the past two years than in the en­tire pre­vi­ous his­tory of the hu­man race?

What makes visu­al­iz­a­tion im­port­ant to us as busi­ness de­vel­op­ment pro­fes­sion­als is the amount of data we have to deal with every day. The enorm­ous amount of data we have to mine, re­view, un­der­stand, design, de­vel­op, ex­plain, and im­ple­ment, would take a life­time if we were not to util­ize and pri­or­it­ize visu­al­iz­a­tion as one of our core val­ues and im­ple­ment it in our busi­ness. We util­ize well-de­signed data graph­ics and visu­als to make everything easi­er, un­der­stand­able, and most power­ful for our cli­ents.

With stat­ic, an­im­ated, and in­ter­act­ive visu­al com­pos­i­tions, we re­veal the data at sev­er­al levels of de­tail, from an ex­tens­ive out­line to one-minute fig­ures. Pro­fes­sion­al data and info visu­al­iz­a­tions help our cli­ents un­der­stand fig­ures, num­bers, and trends, as well as make in­ter­con­nec­tions and stra­tegic de­cisions. Our cli­ents util­ize our visu­al com­pos­i­tions as busi­ness de­vel­op­ment tools for the ana­lys­is of both qual­it­at­ive and quant­it­at­ive in­form­a­tion about their or­gan­iz­a­tions.

We are pro­fes­sion­al at mak­ing things simple, visu­al, and easy to un­der­stand and en­gage with. We be­lieve in util­iz­ing the latest visu­al­iz­a­tion tools in every as­pect of our busi­ness. In AG’z, we build visu­als us­ing data ana­lyt­ics rather than in­fograph­ics tools.

Visu­al­ize to ac­tu­al­ize.

Vision

To be a lead­ing vir­tu­al busi­ness de­vel­op­ment part­ner for in­nov­at­ive star­tups and SMEs across the MENA re­gion.

Mission

We blend in­nov­a­tion with an un­con­ven­tion­al con­sult­ing ap­proach and help our cli­ents re­mod­el their com­pan­ies to turn in­to a bet­ter ver­sion of their busi­nesses. By build­ing or im­prov­ing ex­ist­ing BD in­fra­struc­tures, our mis­sion is to ac­cel­er­ate your suc­cess and growth in busi­ness, in­creas­ing ef­fi­ciency and sav­ing your valu­able re­sources.

Philosophy

  • Be­ing simple, be­cause we be­lieve that sim­pli­city is the ul­ti­mate soph­ist­ic­a­tion.
  • Be­ing ef­fi­cient, be­cause we be­lieve that it’s not about quant­ity, it’s about qual­ity.
  • Be­ing agile, be­cause we be­lieve that the only con­stant in life is change.
  • Be­ing di­ver­si­fied, be­cause we be­lieve that strength lies in dif­fer­ences—not in sim­il­ar­it­ies.
