Strategy implementation is crucial for any firm that aims to achieve its long-term goals. The test of a successful strategy execution is pegged on the actions put in place to meet certain set targets spelled out in a well orchestrated strategic plan. The challenges to be encountered in the implementation process may be as a result of poor communication, lack of stakeholder involvement in both strategy formulation and implementation, ineffective leadership, poor employee morale and motivation among others. Strategies are implemented differently in different organization. This study was guided by the following objectives; to determine the challenges faced by Kenya Police Sacco during strategy implementation process and to identify the measures put in place to overcome such challenges. The research used a case study research design approach and used primary data which was collected through the use of an interview guide. The researcher interviewed four senior managers at the Kenya Police Sacco out of the possible target of five. Data collected was qualitative in nature and content analysis was used to analyze this data. The study revealed very minimal challenges to strategy implementation at the Kenya Police Sacco; the key being related to technological shifts in infrastructure, skills and equipments. Government regulations and policies was another external force which had posed a significant challenge to KPS operations and also altered the way the SACCO implemented its strategies from time to time. Government regulations and policies was observed as a force that KPS as an organization had little control over. Effective strategic leadership played a central role and was seen as an important link to many other factors that in turn became a pillar to the success of the strategy implementation phase at the Sacco. The leadership ensured enough resources were adequately distributed and allocated depending on various key departmental needs thus becoming a source of competitive advantage. The Sacco had taken strategy implementation process to a whole new level. The research established that Kenya Police Sacco did not put much emphasis and effort on or they were not enough employee trainings conducted to facilitate effective implementation of company strategies. The study recommends frequent monitoring and adjustment of the organization’s activities and events in order to fit into the ever dynamic external environment. This study recommends accountability of managers in the area of organizational growth and development. Being a case study with a narrow focus on a single unit organization became one of the biggest limitation to this study as its findings cannot be generalized to other Saccos in Kenya.
