The strategy implementation stage of the strategy process has received little attention, with limited research devoted to developing measures for studying this important management process and practice. Analyzing data from 208 senior managers involved in strategy processes within ten UK industrial sectors, this paper presents evidence on the measurement properties of a multi-dimensional instrument that assesses ten dimensions of strategy implementation. Using exploratory factor analysis, the results indicate that the sub-constructs (the ten dimensions) are uni-dimensional factors with acceptable reliability and validity. Nomological Validity for the multi-dimensional strategy implementation construct was established using three additional measures, and a correlation and hierarchical regression analysis. The relative importance of the strategy implementation dimensions (activities) is highlighted for practising managers. We also discuss and highlight the mutually and combinative effects, drawing conclusion that senior management involvement is vital for successful strategy implementation.
