I have asked again all the audience to stand up and repeat with me the
'American Allegence' and they did and clap for me, and then, I started
my speech . They were impressed .

ABOUT MY PUBLISHED BOOK ( CONSTRUCTION ACCOUNTING )
In Kuwait, where I have published my BOOK, Al Yaqaza Magazine was
interested to make an interview with me, and was done .
I have emphasized on the ' Planning ' concept that the purpose of the
Book ' CONSTRUCTION ACCOUNTING ' is to plan for every project,
as most individuals execute their projects without any experience or plans .
When the question raised between the American and our applications in
executing ' managerial contracting ' :
I have emphasized from possessing experience on three reasons for the
success of ' contracting project ' .
1. The American Contractors are working as ' Teamwork ' and no room
for individuality as 'all efforts and group plans' must be built-in in one
" sound managerial plans " .
2. The American Contractors depend on " Computerization " in every
movement or activity in order to filter all positive ideas and eliminate
the rest of non-productive activities .
3. " Proper services " are always the core of American success .
The American management built on ' systematic foundation ' with its
laws, principles, and rules .
