Organizations implement only 63% of their strategies' potential value according to Mankins and Steele. On the other hand, 66% of corporate strategy is never implemented (Mankins and Steele, 2005). The major focus on strategy research has been on their formulation (Grundy, 1998; Morris & Jamieson, 2005).
