My Ph D research identified 20 success factors that influence the success of a strategy implementation effort in public and private organizations.
The success factors are based on over a hundred in-depth interviews with executives and managers in a wide variety of organizations around the world, both in the private and public sector.
Strategy is about creating and defending a competitive advantage in changing environments.
To be successful, organizations must leverage and renew their resources, competencies and leadership skills, sometimes in multiples industries at the same time.
Strategy research has traditionally focused on strategy formation and neglected strategy execution.
To fill this crucial knowledge gap, I investigated why strategies succeed or fail.

The successful implementation of strong and robust strategies gives any organization a significant competitive edge.
However, well-formulated strategies only produce superior performance for organizations when they are successfully implemented.
