Factors influencing implementation of building policy at the city council of Nairobi
Strategy implementation is an iterative process of implementing strategies, policies, programs and action plans that allows a firm to utilize its resources to take advantage of opportunities in the competitive environment. Implementation is the process that turns plans into action assignments and ensures that such assignments are executed in a manner that accomplishes the plan’s stated objectives. Good strategies alone will not work, appropriate implementation processes to produce intended results have to be put in place. Putting strategy into place and getting individuals and organization units to execute their part of the strategic plan is essentially an administrative task. Although effective implementation of strategy is important it is not easy. Once an organization has chosen a strategy to achieve its goals, it has to be put into action by selecting appropriate organizational structure and managing its execution through tailoring the management systems of the organization to the requirements of the strategy. There have been frequent disasters and calamities that have befallen the country and the City of Nairobi in the recent past. The proliferation of slums, dangerous buildings, incompatible land uses, dilapidated and risky houses, collapse of buildings under construction, strain over social amenities and congestion are just but a few glaring indications of the problem facing the built sector. Thus this research is aimed at investigating factors influencing implementation of building policy at the City Council of Nairobi.
