Strategy implementation is the sum total of the activities and the choices required for the execution of a strategic plan. It is a process by which objectives, strategies and policies are put into action through the development of programs, budgets and procedures. (Wheelen and Hunger)

Process of Strategy Implementation:

  1. Identifying short term objectives.
  2. Initiating specific functional tactics.
  3. Empowering people in the organizational by communicating  policies.
  4. Matching the organization structure to strategy 
  5. Linking reward system with strategic goals.
  6. Measurement feedback and corrective mechanism.

Designing Structure for Strategy Implementation

Change in strategy often requires changes in the way an organization is structured for two major reasons: First, Structure largely dictates how objectives and policies will be established. Second, Structure dictates how resources will be allocated.
