In 1988, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), in partnership with the Government of Jordan, launched the Industrial Development Project in Jordan. The project aimed at facing the difficult economic environment at the time, through addressing the constraints inhibiting the expansion and growth in the private manufacturing sector. To accomplish this objective, USAID designed the project with three main components. Creating a Manufacturing and Marketing Improvement Section (MMIS) within the Jordan Institute of Management (JIM), which was itself a part of the Industrial Development Bank (IDB), developing an industrial engineering program at the Faculty of Engineering and Technology at the University of Jordan, and revitalizing and augmenting the Amman Chamber of Industry.
A.T. Kearney, a global management consulting firm, was contracted by USAID to establish MMIS capabilities and to create the foundation upon which MMIS has grown. A.T. Kearney’s management and support ensured MMIS success in fulfilling its mandate of providing superior quality management consulting to private Jordanian manufacturing firms, to assist them become more competitive internationally, in addition to creating consulting services awareness and enhancing the consulting capabilities within the local Jordanian market.
In May 1993, and upon the successful conclusion of MMIS mandate as a part of the USAID’s Industrial Development Project, MMIS was acquired by its senior Jordanian directors and became a private shareholding company totally owned by Jordanians. It was registered under the Arabic name of “Dar Al-Khibra Lil-Istisharat Al-Edaria” and continued to operate under the already well-known brand name MMIS.
Ever since, MMIS worked on aligning its scope of services with the continuously changing market needs, in parallel with broadening its clientele base to include clients from all different sectors in MENA region.
