The study sought to determine the challenges of implementation of open space office layout strategy by Teachers Service Commission of Kenya. Another objective of the study was to establish what Teachers Service Commission is doing to overcome the open space strategy implementation challenges. Four respondents were interviewed out of which a response rate of 83% was achieved. The study was a case study and interview guide was administered using personal interview method. The main findings of the study were that implementation of an organization strategy requires though scrutiny of the strategy by all the commission stakeholders so that all them are part of the strategy thus eliminating any resistance which may result due to non –inclusive consultation. The study however shows that noise, lack of privacy, human behaviour, environmental factors and technological challenges have an impact on open space office layout structure. Even though the commission has been discussing the matter with the employees regarding the issues affecting the organization at large as per the strategy implementation the researcher therefore recommends that commission should ensure that precautions are taken immediately in order to reduce greater loss to the organization. The commission should ensure that challenges are dealt with promptly in order to increase productivity.
