What Does
Tahseen mean?

Tahseen means improve or enhance in Arabic. We are obsessively passionate about creating positive impact for clients, and our mission is to help them achieve it.

Thinkers, Entrepreneurs, Doers

We are a small team working on big things at the intersection of policy, development, and technology.

How we work

Arab governments, leading corporations, and social sector institutions work with us because we offer knowledge, insight, and counsel they can use to move forward with confidence. Alongside each client, we deliver rigorous analysis, deep industry knowledge, and pragmatic solutions for tangible, high impact results.

1 + 1 = ∞

We offer expertise that complements our clients’ capabilities, not replaces it. We establish a collegial relationship with clients that allow them to build their capabilities so that they can fully participate in engagements and have the expertise to continue implementation after our work is finished.

Objective, Expert Guidance

We offer objective, expert guidance that allows clients to build internal support and reach practical recommendations to the challenges they face.

Execution Excellence

Our consultants have delivered in over 40 countries, across industries, and with the most senior leaders of global organizations. The breadth and depth of our experience working as practitioners sets us apart from traditional firms’ consultants. We go beyond offering good advice – we are specialists who have honed our consulting approach through years of successfully solving many of the challenges our clients face as practitioners and executing within Arab and international governments.

Evidence-based Analysis

We value evidence-based analysis and combine it with our deep understanding of the region to drive practical insights and results. This approach stresses multidisciplinary methods and triangulation to distinguish between causality and explanation, leveraging research based approaches to fill gaps in understanding to help move from a strategy based on anecdote to a strategy and execution based on facts.


We strive to communicate and deliver solutions that are as understandable to C-level executives as they are to the staff on the front lines of implementation and service delivery. Accessibility is critical to internalizing capabilities so that organizations can lead future work and continue to improve their own performance with internally driven resources.

Focus on the Greater Good

Through our client work, we make a positive impact on the Arab region every day. We challenge common and accepted knowledge by contributing to the regional development debate through proprietary sponsored research and insights, our work, and our community engagement. By looking beyond standard solutions to develop new insights, we have a deep understanding of the present while shaping and anticipating the future regional policy and development agenda.

We believe in ...

Investing in building the capabilities of

Given the region’s youthful demographics, we view building organizational and personal capacity to lead the way after our work with clients is finished as critical.

Operating ethically through open communications

We adhere to the highest standards through honest communications, respect for others, and a focus on the greater good rather than exclusively commercial interests.

Sharing our independent

We share our research and insights with businesses, governments, community organizations, and others so that we all learn and work together.

Delivering practical and implementable solutions

We improve our clients’ performance by delivering practical, implementable solutions, not reports that wind up in a filing cabinet or lost on the intranet.

Grounding our work in rigorous methodologies

We ground our work in rigorous proven methodologies that are informed by local insights to go beyond advancing only best practice initiatives.

Forging and
promoting collaboration

Achieving large scale, lasting regional change requires systemic rather than initiative-driven approaches. For this reason, we forge and promote multi-sectoral collaboration.
