Many organizations undergoing strategic planning or changes in their strategy find it difficult to shift from strategic planning to successful implementation and assimilation of the strategy. As a result, around 80% of strategic decisions in organizations are never implemented.

In order to succeed in effectively realizing the strategy, it is crucial to lead organizational development and change management steps in the organization.

The STEPS model guides strategy leaders through five key steps:

STEPS - Strategy Implementation Model
STEPS model five key steps: Structure, Tools, Execute, Processes, Share
