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.

Historically, Peeblesshire was a county in southern Scotland, surrounded by Midlothian, Selkirkshire, Dumfriesshire and Lanarkshire. Its county town was Peebles. The county is now absorbed into the Scottish Borders county area, but its locals will often still identify themselves as inhabitants of Peeblesshire. Peebles itself has a population of around 10,000 and is surrounded by the rolling hills of southern Scotland. Peeblesshire was generally an agricultural county.
Peebles, and the county area, are linked to Edinburgh and Glasgow by the A703 and A72 respectively, and A-roads head south to Carlisle and Newcastle-upon-Tyne. With no major concentrations of population in the Peeblesshire area, Implementation Lead jobs could be hard to find because of the lack of major infrastructure; however, whenever there are needs to be met and goods to deliver, and agriculture certainly has both qualifications, jobs in supply chain, logistics and procurement often follow.
