The study focused on the factors influencing the implementation of the kenya sugar industry strategic plan (2010-2014). To achieve this objective, case study was used and it involved in-depth interviews with major stakeholders in the sugar industry which comprised of the Chief Executive Officer of Kenya Sugar Board, Kenya Sugar Research Foundation and sugar companies, and Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture. The data collected was analyzed through content analysis which gave the conceptual approach in capturing the thematic analysis of the study. It was evident that the sugar industry strategic plan was properly documented and activities pertaining to implementation of the plan were still ongoing. The study identified some of the factors that influence implementation of the strategic plan which included organization and industry structure, communication, resources, human resource capacity and practice, leadership and management, organization and industry policies and procedures, management of information system, government policies, and competition. The implementation of the strategic plan was found to be below par as was envisaged during the formulation process. However, for the strategic plan to be implemented successful there is need for institutionalization and operationalization of the strategy in the day to day activities of key stakeholders in the sugar industry. In conclusion, the success of the Kenya sugar industry can be realized through consideration of factors influencing the implementation of the Kenya Sugar Industry Strategic Plan (2010-2014).
