A company’s strategy is management`s action plan for running the business and conduction operations. (Thompson, A. A., Strickland III, A. J., & Gamble, J. E. 2007, p.3). The performance of an organization depends on how effective it is in converting a strategy into execution.

This is a great model of any organization; the model lacks the steps in an organization process. While managers understand the model, it is difficult to apply to the firm as each firm is different. Managers should be trained on the model and be provide tools on the implementation process. The results from such a research will help find the underlying issues in the 5Ps
