Managers who address strategic accomplishment and execution processes are considered successful as they take their organizations to attain its vision. This means that strategies laid out on paper work are brought into action in the organization. The concept of strategy implementation is aimed at simplifying the processes involved so that the idea can be effectively communicated to the members of the organization. This paper will address the process of building an institution into good execution of its strategies.
Execution of organizational management strategies requires consideration of the understanding of what strategy entails by those responsible in implementing it. Effectiveness in implementation of organizational strategy is determined by the manager’s understanding of the things to be realized. It is worth noting that every strategy is unique and it requires effective implementation so that the intended objectives can be attained.
Nevertheless, there are several things that managers need to consider while implementing a strategy of whatsoever kind. They are strategic pillars that are common to every type of strategy. They include building and improving an organizational level of competence and strengths. This requires managers to understand the strengths and capabilities that are uniquely identified with their organization so that they can build on them. Second, mangers should be aware of the amount of funds that implementing a given strategy will take. They have to ensure that the company has enough finances to support implementation of the strategy.
Additionally, managers of organizations should come up with policies and procedures to allow the process of implementation of the required strategy. This helps other managers and employees in the lower levels of the organization to easily follow suit. Moreover, there is need to incorporate information systems that allow efficient and proficient use of human resources in executing their assigned duties.
Managers are also supposed to include a rewarding scheme to those who facilitate implementation of organizational strategies. Finally, the best implementation process requires inclusion of organizational culture of change. This helps employees to learn how to cope with change and develop a good attitude towards it, so that efficiency and excellence can be attained. Most of the time, people develop a naturally repelling force against change. They are usually not very willing to embrace change. Therefore, the management team has a duty of convincing the stakeholders to welcome any adjustments presented towards them in the course of implementation of a strategy.
Execution of strategies can become one of the hardest duties in management. Every strategy requires unique skills which are sometimes scarce in the institutions. This means that incase they are unavailable; the management looks for alternative ways of accessing the skills such as through hiring. Furthermore, a specific type of technology is sometimes needed to handle some sensitive duties. Also, the organization is usually reluctant to expose its sensitive and classified information to outside parties. As a matter of fact, hiring experts is usually very expensive especially if the execution process will take a considerable length of time. This calls for the management to create avenues for training of its employees so that they can handle more complicated tasks that challenge them today.
Different strategies demand a mixture of management styles, experience, knowledge and creativity to come up with the best implementation process. Therefore, the first step to implementing a strategy is to bring together a management team that has a combination of unique capabilities, experiences and skills for the assigned job. It is also worth noting that, when a certain strategy is being implemented, the institution should focus its energies and wealth towards the entire process so as to come up with the best results.
