Capstone – Project
Implementation of Strategic Plan for Federal Construction Firm
A Collaboration Between
A strategic plan is worth the paper it's written on if the plan is not executed. During 2019 Onopa developed a strategic plan to anticipate changes in it's business model. During 2020, management wants to test an implementation model called FOAMSHIP. The model integrates functional and non-functional areas within an organization to create a culture that rewards performance. A successful project would result in a dynamic management platform that enables future growth.
