About the Institute

The Strategy Implementation Institute (the Institute) provides the training, certification and resources to people looking to acquire the knowledge and skills to be implementation specialists.

Organizations are crafting strategy more frequently than at any other time in history.

This places a great demand on the ability to implement that strategy. Part of the challenge is that the current generation of leaders has been taught how to plan but not how to implement—at a time when implementation skills are highly required.

The high failure rate demonstrates this missing skills gap among leaders. It also drives the need for leaders to enhance their abilities and become recognized implementation specialists.

Whichever type of strategy you are implementing, the Institute provides you with the required skills through our online certification course.

Poor implementation slows down both innovation and excellence in business, but it does not need to. Learning from failures as well as successes ensures leaders leverage the lessons learned using a roadmap. Through the Institute, you can embrace the highest standards of performance and be guided by the Strategy Implementation Roadmap (SIR).

Toward this mission, the Institute supports and develops:

  • Middle managers looking to enhance their implementation skills
  • Leaders responsible for implementing strategy and improving the business performance
  • Project managers looking to complement their capabilities with strategy implementation skills
  • Individuals looking to improve themselves to create new opportunities

Change management is transformation around the core.”
