ABSTRACT
A good marketing strategy does not always necessarily lead to successful marketing
performance in an organization. It depends on how marketing people translate the strategy into
action. A well formulated, but badly implemented strategy, will be effective (do the right
things), but not efficient (do things right). While correct implementation of a badly formulated
strategy will be efficient, but not effective. Firms need both effectiveness and efficiency to
optimize their performance. This study, based on existing literature, identified a list of activities
concerning the marketing strategy implementation, and investigated their nature in the process
of the strategy implementation among best calibre creator. A tested structured questionnaire
was used as a guidance in interviewing marketing managers -the respondents of the study.
Factor analysis was used to extract, if any, key dimensions across the data. The study findings
suggest that evaluation and control has greatest impact either on financial performance or
strategic performance.
