We are looking for SCOPE projects that have the potential for a great return for the company, but are not in a critical path.
All companies have three classes of problems: Class 1 problems are the mission-critical problems that companies must focus on for survival. Class 2 problems are strategic in nature and have been sitting on the back burner, for lack of time and skilled labor to address them. Addressing these problems could significantly and positively affect the bottom line, provide a foundation for explosive growth or enable successful entry into a profitable new business area. Class 3 problems are low-level and have no significant impact on corporate operations.
