Factors That Influence The Implementation Of Strategies And Performance Of Public Research Institutions In Kenya
Strategy execution is the practice of converting premeditated targets set into activities that are aimed at getting the desired targeted results. For a strategic plan to be said was successfully implemented, the end results in terms of performance targets achieved must be shown. It requires a keen deliberation of the resources to be used for the process, human resource capital needed, and the systems and structures to be put in place. The main purpose of this study was to determine the common influencers of strategy operationalization and performance in public research establishments in Kenya. This study is conducted using structured interview guide so as to gather data from the identified respondents. The key findings from this study ware majorly the internal factors impact on policy operationalization and have an impact on the achievements of the institutions. This study has revealed that indeed all the institutions have to stay on course of their plans so have to have a realization of the implementations Critical discussion of these factors points out other areas of possible future studies, having in mind that this study was limited to four public research institutions in Kenya and not any other part of the public sector, and that it has laid focus only on the factors influencing strategy with linkage to their performance. The study also recommends that public research institutions conduct an evaluation on the strategic plans which will help the institutions to continue to gather valuable information that will provide valuable perceptions in the road to strategy implementation. The study also goes ahead to inform the top management to consider keeping a well monitoring process that ensures that the strategic plan adopted. It is vital that resource allocation on strategic implementation process is also well monitored so that there is also accountability at the end of the entire process. The road to the achievement of all these is not an easy one but can be made easier with the participation of all the stake holders and the involvement of all staff who have to own the process of its implementation.
