o Competent employees and especially management are the most important success factor for strategy implementation. o Inadequate capabilities of managers are a common cause of strategy implementation failure. o When employees have little conﬁdence in the ability of management to execute the strategy then their commitment to the strategy will be low. o Having incompetent members within a team has a negative inﬂuence on the performance of other team members. o Successful organizational members tend to leave an organization when they have to work for incompetent managers and feel that their performance is not appreciated or even worked against.

o Training and education of organizational members is a important lever for strategy implementation. Adequately trained staﬀ is one of the most critical steps top management can take to ensure successful strategy implementation. o Implementing a new strategy often requires new activities and ways of thinking, which can be learned by training and educating employees. o Training and education improves employee knowledge and skills, self-conﬁdence and makes them perform better. o Training and education can consist of courses, collective classes, (on-the-job) training, and individual guidance and coaching.

o Strategy implementation requires a reward system that monitors its progress and demonstrates top management’s commitment to the realization of the strategy. o Reward systems are essential for motivating staﬀ and ensuring appropriate behavior in relation to the strategy. o Rewarding implementation performance increases the motivation and performance of organizational members. o Informal rewards (pats on the back, a sense of pride, enthusiasm) greatly increase the motivation, self-conﬁdence and performance of organizational members. o Employees often do not get compliments when they perform well but do get criticism when they make mistakes. This greatly reduces the motivation, self-eﬃcacy and performance of organizational members.

o Successful strategy formulation and implementation begins with formulating a sound and clear strategic vision by top management. o The strategic vision describes the desired future state of the organization and helps clarify the direction in which an organization is to move. o The strategic vision needs to be attractive and easy to communicate toward organizational members, customers and other stakeholders. o A clear and attractive strategic vision increases the conﬁdence of employees in a successful outcome of the implementation eﬀort.

o When organizational members have high self-eﬃcacy and believe that they can perform the new implementation tasks successfully, they are more likely to perform well. o Another result of low self-eﬃcacy may be that, organizational members can become afraid to make mistakes, take initiative, and participate in decision-making. o Low self-eﬃcacy can result from low self-conﬁdence and self-esteem, an authoritarian management style, and an environment in which many things fail. o Increase self-eﬃcacy of employees through coaching and counseling, rewarding performance, a people-oriented management style and by creating an organizational culture in which people are able to make mistakes and learn from them.

o Achieving visible improvements in performance, especially in the beginning of the strategy implementation (quick wins) increases the motivation and commitment of organizational members. o People are more inclined to accept new things when they see that these things work and lead to results. o During the strategy implementation it is important to make change visible to organization. By making change visible (such as new logo, uniforms and oﬃces) management van show the organization that they are committed to the strategy and things are really changing. o Achieving results is even more important when the organization is in crisis and short-term results are needed to let employees regain conﬁdence.
