The Arabic word "Altaaat" is a term we invented as a way by which to construct methodologies for achieving a particular goal and that by outlining the steps required for achieving that goal through the use of verbs that start with the Arabic letter ”ta” and which ”Altaaat” implies the plural of.
The beauty of the Altaaat methodology lies in the fact that it simplifies the task of achieving any goal by dividing the task up into simple and achievable steps that are then easily remembered.
An example of such are Altaaat the six laid out for Altaaat's T6 group leadership development programs, which are "taqra2 i.e. read", then "tufaker i.e. think", then "tajtame3 i.e. meet", then "tunaqesh i.e. discuss", then "tujareb i.e. pilot", and finally "taqoud i.e. lead".
