Challenges facing strategy implementation in the ministry of lands, housing and urban development in Kenya

Strategy implementation is one of the essential components of strategic management, it is important for effective management since it impacts every part of the organization’s structure especially when change is introduced in an organization. The objective of this study was to determine challenges facing strategy implementation in the ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development in Kenya. To achieve the objective of the study, a case study was adopted in this particular case since not all the potential respondents of the study are knowledgeable about the challenges facing the ministry of land, Housing and Urban Development in the implementation of strategy. The study used primary data which was collected using an interview guide. An interview guide is a set of questions that the interviewer asks when interviewing. The population of the study was the ministry of Land, Housing and Urban Development. A face to face interview was conducted with four respondents: two principal secretaries and their deputies. These respondents were deemed as key informants of the study because they were highly involved in the implementation of strategies in the ministry of Land, Housing and Urban Development. The interview guide contained three sections: part A contained questions on general information about the ministry, section B contained questions on strategy implementation and section C asked questions on the challenges of strategy implementation in the ministry of Land, Planning and Urban Development. The data collected was analyzed qualitatively using content analysis. The study revealed that the complexity of the strategy, employee preparedness for the new change, lack of adequate skills and knowledge, the need for a longer preparation time and misappropriation of funds and corruption were the main impediments that negatively affected strategy implementation in the ministry of land, housing and urban development. The study revealed that the complexity of the strategy, employee preparedness for the new change, lack of adequate skills and knowledge, the need for a longer preparation time and misappropriation of funds and corruption were the main impediments that negatively affected strategy implementation in the ministry of land, housing and urban development. The limitation for this study was that the study was carried out within a limited time frame and resources which constrained the scope and depth of the study. This necessitated the adoption of a case study research design hence these findings cannot be used to make generalizations regarding the challenges façade by other ministries in Kenya when implementing strategies.
