dc.description.abstract This study sought to investigate the factors affecting the implementation of strategic plans. Findings from various studies have indicated that many organizations have slowly embraced strategic planning but the implementation process remains a challenge, resulting in well-formulated strategies that fail at the implementation stage. This study departed from the previous studies looking into relationships and endeavored to establish the factors affecting effective implementation of strategic plans in Non-Governmental Organizations in Kenya. To achieve the main objective, a descriptive survey of 258 NGOs was conducted from a population frame of 2588 NGOs operating in Nairobi District under the Youth, Relief, Micro-Finance, Welfare and Health sectors. Statistical inferences using 2-way ANOVA indicated that a high reliability was achieved by the data collection instrument with Cronbach’s alpha coefficients ranging from 0.801 to 0.875. Both tests of significance using ordinary least squares regression and correlation analysis indicated a strong significance amongst the variables as well as when combined against the dependent variable. Management styles, organization culture, stakeholders and organization resources had a great significance on strategic plans implementation while communication had some significance but not as strong as the other variables. This enabled a conclusion to be made that management style, communication, organizational culture, stakeholders and organizational resources all affect the effectiveness of implementation of strategic plans. en_US
