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.

Situated in South Yorkshire , Sheffield was a prominent player in the steel industry for hundreds of years. This began with the manufacture of cutlery in the 1500s and grew with the discovery of crucible steel in the 1740s.
Further innovations included Sheffield plating and the creation of stainless steel, an important development in the industrial revolution that led to a significant increase in the city's population. By the 19th century, the city had become pivotal in the steel industry.
Ironwork and coal mining were also big business in the region, while the outlying areas produced limestone - including the stone used to build the Palace of Westminster.
In the 1970s and 1980s, Sheffield suffered economically as the coal industry collapsed and the iron and steel industries struggled with international competition. Over the last ten years, however, the city has experienced a rebirth and it is now a fashionable destination known for its shopping and green spaces.
Today, the only remaining steelworks is Forgemasters. The city's economy has moved on and for those seeking Implementation Lead vacancies in Sheffield, the major industries now include telecommunications, manufacturing and construction. Some of the top employers include BT, Land Instruments International, Barclays and Swann Morton.
