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.

As the capital of Wales, Cardiff has long been at the centre of Welsh commerce, culture, media and government. It is the most populous city in Wales and offers an array of possibilities for those seeking Implementation Lead vacancies.
Cardiff is situated in the historic county of Glamorgan and until the 19th century, it was a fairly small town. As the Industrial Revolution took hold in the rest of the UK, the Port of Cardiff, also known as Tiger Bay, became increasingly important - in fact, one of the busiest in the world.
The Taff Vale Railway and the Glamorganshire connected the city's docks to the coal-producing areas in other parts of Wales, and this useful resource was sent on as fuel for factories across the country.
In the late 1800s, rival docks at Barry began to take over in the shipment of coal, but the Coal Exchange remained in Cardiff and the city became increasingly industrialised, with the addition of an ironworks and a steelworks.
Cardiff officially became the capital in 1955 and over the years it has remained an important cargo port. Much of its industrial past has been replaced by the financial and business sector - although there are still metal works to be found in the region.
Today, a number of well-known companies operate headquarters in the city - including Admiral Insurance, Principality Building Society and 118118. In addition, the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff is the UK's largest hospital outside of London.
