Strategy Implementation and ControlThe effectiveness of strategy implementation determines the outcome of marketing planning. The management of the planning process may enhance implementation effectiveness by building commitment and ownership of the plan and its execution. For example actively managing the participation of different functions and executives from different specializations may improve the fit between the plan and the companys real capabilities and resources and avoid implementation barriers. Planning and execution are interdependent parts of strategic change. Marketing managers increasingly function as boundary spanners both internally between functional areas and externally with suppliers, organizational partners and customers. Additional efforts to make the strategy implementation process more effective are a high priority in many companies. Many companies now recognize that implementation capabilities are an important corporate capability that requires detailed management attention.

These stories often leave us in a state of wonder and awe, and we find ourselves wanting to know more. More about how the business became a success, more about what inspired a normal working guy or girl to think of a novel and brilliant business idea, and more about how someone can start a business, and make her dreams a reality. We become so fixated on these stories that, all too often, we overlook the other side of that reality: that just as businesses become big and successful, there are also companies — perhaps in greater numbers — that fail. What many often fail to realize, is that they can also learn from business ideas that tanked and business ventures that never really got off the ground. Better, they can also learn a lot from businesses that were able to get started, and then, somewhere along the way, something went wrong. They were having problems and great difficulty in maintaining their operations, until most of them declared bankruptcy or liquidated. Businesses fail for a lot of reasons.
