Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to identify the intra‐organizational factors effective in a successful strategy implementation, measure the interaction intensity, analyze relation patterns among those factors, and lastly, prioritize the factors according to the level of importance and effect in the success of a strategy implementation. Design/methodology/approach – A review of the literature produced 13 key intra‐organizational factors involved in successful strategy implementation. The factors were then prioritized and the interaction among them was identified using interpretive structural modelling (ISM). DEMATEL was employed to quantitatively calculate the importance, intensity and effect in the interaction among the factors. Finally, combining both the aforementioned methods an integrated ISM‐DEMATEL model was devised through which the factors were prioritized while the importance, intensity and effect of each factor were quantitatively calculated. Findings – Prioritization and establishing relations and interactions among the identified factors by ISM; determining the priority of each factor and their intensity of effect and interaction on a quantitative basis through DEMATEL method and developing the integrated model of ISM‐DEMATEL for intra‐organizational factors effective in successful strategy implementation. Research limitations/implications – Due to time limitation, the hybrid model could not be practically applied to any organizations or businesses and in this research, only 12 experts were consulted to construct the model. If the experts involved were increased both quantitatively and qualitatively no doubt the final model would be upheld. Practical implications – Managers who are involved in strategy implementation or who intend to enter this phase are advised to apply the integrated ISM‐DEMATEL model that presented in this paper in order to obtain good perspective about interaction and prioritization among the intra‐organizational factors effective in strategy implementation success. Originality/value – Identification of 13 key intra‐organizational factors effective in successful strategy execution, by studying through the literature; prioritization and establishing relations and interactions among the identified factors by ISM; determining the priority of each factor and their intensity of effect and interaction on a quantitative basis through DEMATEL method; developing the integrated model of ISM‐DEMATEL for intra‐organizational factors effective in successful strategy execution; improving the integrated model through ISM by applying the findings obtained through DEMATEL.
