Management is organized through a set of procedures and regulations including the Code of Conduct, to regulate the work and preserve the values we seek to achieve. CCSD adopts a participatory management approach wherein the organization always seeks the views of all employees within the organization with regard to strategic decisions that affect our values and objectives as well as areas of work. CCSD also attaches great importance to staff needs at all different levels. Therefore, we are continuously working to develop policies and procedures that will raise the level of transparency, integrity, and accountability within the organization.
