Shortly after the creation of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, to facilitate the speedy development of the well-endowed but highly beleaguered Niger Delta region of Nigeria, NDDC crafted a development strategy, named the Niger Delta Regional Development Master Plan (NDRDMP), to change the region by working in concert with a vast array of stakeholders. However, many years into its implementation, academia has, sadly, ignored the factors influencing NDDC’s execution of this widely acclaimed development strategy that could produce the highly-desired change in the Niger Delta. Thus, strategic leaders of NDDC and other Niger Delta stakeholders are hamstrung by the lack of empirical data to understand and handle properly the factors influencing the NDRDMP execution. This book focuses on the NDRDMP as a change strategy and the desirability of its successful execution. It examines props and obstacles to execution of the NDRDMP and makes practical proposals, which should be helpful to all top executives and leaders with stakes in the Niger Delta, all participants in the intended review of the NDRDMP, strategy scholars and everyone else drawn to strategy execution generally.
