Having great plans for any project is only half the battle – plans need to be put into action and it needs to be done well with oversight and continuous monitoring. This is where the implementation lead is a useful stage in the project’s personnel structure. They have a simple goal – to make sure the plans that need to be completed have enough staffing, time and resources to happen on budget. They often work alongside senior project managers, who rely on them to realise their specific project elements in line with the strategic aims of the company.
In some companies the implementation lead is the equivalent to a board level employee, and has decision-making powers or at least the ability to influence the board. Other companies treat the implementation lead as a team leadership role, with the experience to see tasks through to completion but receiving specific instructions from a manager or director.
Implementation leads are usually drawn from the ranks of team leaders and project managers to focus on specific activities, for example a design, a model, and idea, a specification, a standard or a policy. Whereas the project manager and/or director is often focused on the bigger picture, the implementation lead will more likely be working directly with the employees who are putting those plans into action. That means the implementation lead has to be a great communicator and has to be able to deal with employees at all rungs of the ladder.
Experience in the appropriate sector will naturally count for a lot in your search for an implementation lead role. However, management experience is not always a pre-requisite for some companies, who would value your deep understanding of the discipline you are implementing more highly, as long as you can demonstrate an aptitude for giving and taking instruction.
Companies with big plans need excellent implementation leads to steer and manage their strategy to completion. If you have experience with project management or working in a sector where implementation is a specialized job, there could be employers looking for someone just like you right now.

Scotland's third most populous city after Edinburgh and Glasgow, Aberdeen is also known as the Granite City, since many of its beautiful 18th and 19th century buildings are constructed from the local stone. It's a great place for those seeking Implementation Lead vacancies.
There have been settlements in the region for over 8,000 years and it was an important site during the Wars of Scottish Independence.
Significant expansion occurred during the 19th century, with the growth of the shipbuilding and fishing industries, as well as textiles, metalwork, papermaking and stone quarrying. Much of the existing harbour was built during this time, including the Victoria Dock, the South Breakwater and part of the North Pier.
During the late 20th century, oil was discovered in the North Sea and Aberdeen has since become known as the oil capital of Europe. A number of off-shore oil rigs have been erected and companies in the region have begun to focus their efforts on finding renewable energy sources as well.
In addition to the energy and petrochemicals sector, Aberdeen is home to various research facilities that study everything from fisheries, soil, food, nutrition and agriculture through to technology and electronics design.
Just some of the firms that call Aberdeen home include Abbot Group Ltd, Dana Petroleum, Wood Group and Aberdeen Asset Management.
