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.

The Buckinghamshire town of High Wycombe might sound like a sleepy village with a cricket pitch and a pub, but it’s actually a large town that’s quite industrialised, especially for a southern town. In the past it has been known as a mill town and a paper making centre, but it is probably its furniture workshops for which it became best known. Thousands of terraced homes were built for the workers, and by the middle of the nineteenth century High Wycombe rivalled the towns around Manchester for its industriousness, but also for its squalor. A major redevelopment was carried out in the 1920s to bring habitation up to modern standards. During the Second World War, RAF Bomber Command was based in the town, and was joined in 1942 by the United States’ equivalent.
Although the actual town of High Wycombe has a population of around 75,000, it is part of an amalgamation of smaller towns whose population totals around 120,000. The town is on the M40, about halfway between the centre of London and Oxford.
High Wycombe might have had its ups and downs economically, but it appears to be on the up at the moment, and Implementation Lead jobs have been found in the area. With excellent road and rail links to London and Oxford, it’s a natural place for a distribution centre. Its status as something of a commuter town also means there’s a lot of movement of goods into High Wycombe.
