Strategy Implementation Professional (SIP)®

Strategy Implementation Professional - SIP certification - the first global credential of its kind


The current generation of leaders is taught how to plan but not how to implement!

This course is developed by strategy implementation experts, Harvard Business Review Author, and practitioners. The Institute’s certification course is based on rigorous standards and ongoing research to meet the real-world needs of organizations.

The seven-course module is open to everyone that wants to develop further their skills and learn the fundamentals, best practices, and key tools for strategy implementation. The course is built on the Strategy Implementation Roadmap® (SIR) which provides a step-by-step guide on "how" to implement strategy.

“One of the most cited business quotes is ‘culture eats strategy for breakfast’ but it isn’t as simple as that. Strategy defines the company’s goals for people to focus on. Culture is based on values and beliefs, often unspoken, and guides activity through shared assumptions and behaviour. In my view they have to coexist.

We are in the middle of a massive disruption in the way we do business and many organisations have already achieved change at a speed and to a scale they couldn’t have imagined as recently as 3 months ago. Many more will need to follow suit. Old strategies will be shredded and new ones created very rapidly.

After the storm has passed, there will be a need for competent professionals to help organisations execute their new strategies in an agile and unrelenting manner. An organisation will have to efficiently execute that strategy.  This course provides practical advice on bringing a strategy to life so your organisation  can  achieve its goals. While you have time, gaining a certification in Strategy Implementation will both prepare you to step up to this challenge for your organisation and also set you apart from others.  As T. Boone Pickens said “A plan without action isn’t a plan, it’s a speech.” Speeches won’t cut it in the future, trained and certified people will.” 

The Strategy Implementation Institute is working in association with APMG International, one of the largest professional accreditation organizations, to increase competencies and recognition of implementation professionals. We have jointly developed the Strategy Implementation Professional – SIP – certification, the first global credential of its kind.
