Collaboration both internal and external is considered a dynamic capability that depicts how people work together to achieve desired results. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the influence of collaboration capability on strategy execution in Deposit Taking Savings and Credit Co-operative Organisations (DT-SACCOs) in Kenya. The study population was the 500 heads of departments in Kenya’s 164 DT-SACCOs fully licensed in 2017. From the 222 heads of departments sampled and surveyed through a questionnaire, 183 complete responses were received. The main analytical framework used for hypotheses testing was the structural equation modelling. The study found that collaboration capability both internal and external has a significant positive influence on strategy execution. This study adds to the existing body of knowledge on the influence of collaboration capability on strategy execution. Further, the study presents practitioners in strategic management, policy makers, and the leadership in co-operatives with recommendations to improve practice.
