This research identifies the problems associated with the implementation of strategic decisions in Jordanian publicly quoted industrial firms. The study makes a comparison between high success firms and less successful firms to learn whether or not differences exist in their experience of these problems. A cross sectional survey, employing a questionnaire as the data collection method, was used. The empirical research was conducted by delivering by hand the questionnaires to all Jordanian publicly quoted industrial firms (hereafter referred to as Jordanian industrial firms). The main findings of this research are that Jordanian industrial firms experience all the major strategy implementation problems that earlier literature identifies; that the high success group experiences strategy implementation problems less often than the low success group; and that formal strategic planning helps firms to deal with these problems.
