Challenges of strategy implementation facing citizen network foreign affairs as an international NGO in Kenya on kenyan programs
The United States under President Obama’s leadership is taking a new approach in Africa rooted in partnership by using strategies that help nations build capacity and take responsibility that give the people the tools they will need to help themselves and their communities that will empower problem-solvers at the local and regional levels be they Non Government Organizations, entrepreneurs or governments themselves. It is on this note that CNFA an international Non Governmental organization based in Washington DC with operations in 14 African nations has realized that Kenya has various advantages for it to implement programs that will empower rural entrepreneurs and farmers in Kenya. However, implementation of these programs comes with various challenges among them, inadequate planning, organization culture and poor communication within the organization. This study examined challenges of strategy implementation facing CNFA as an international organization operating in Kenya. This research was conducted through a case study since it is a research in one organization. Both primary and secondary data were used for the study. Interview guides were used to collect the primary data. Secondary data sources were also employed through annual reports and the use of organizational culture affects strategy implementation at the organization. The study recommends that there should be effective and efficient communication to the staff to enable them understand what their requirements are. Managers should be able to articulate their responsibility and duties well and this should be going out as an organization for people to be able to talk about it. Further, the government should waive taxes to ensure money meant for beneficiaries is not taxed as for our case farm inputs to stockists who later sale to farmers for production.
