Our experts developed a strategy-focused approach which consisted of an expansion strategy (supported by on-demand subject matter experts (SMEs)) to execute enterprise activities (Strategic Transition to 2020 Operations and Studies, Analysis, & Evaluation Support) and a production strategy (supported by onsite SMEs) to execute day-to-day operations activities (Current Operations and Support Implementing the VOW Act).

Results & Impacts
Genesis Concepts & Consultants conducted an initial Strengths, Challenges, Opportunities, and Threats analysis to establish our Program Management Playbook to transition from the current-state model to a sustainable future-state model. The transformation activities to fuel this analysis included a manpower study that addressed the operational impacts of a pending 25+% manpower reduction; research and propose new position description for modified and future labor categories; assess the need for future technology integration to augment reduced workforce; and conduct policy reviews with proposed updates for future governance considerations.

Our team of experts completed 100% of assigned tasks in support of the manpower study with a 100% accuracy and timeliness rating.
