Abstract

Modern economy requires continuous improvement of the management process. This applies
not only to business, but also to public administration. It is necessary to search for methods,
improving the quality of management, including optimization of decision-making processes. One
of such decision support methods is the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), proposed by
American mathematician, T.L. Saaty in the 70’s. Since then, this method has been widely used in
practice. This paper reports the process of building and analyzing the AHP model, which supports
a local government (District Office) in identifying priority factors of strategic management. The
implementation took place in one of the districts of Southern Poland, Nowy Targ. The model
refers to strategic management of local development understood as changes in an endogenous
potential of the region. It is built by four main criteria: potential of society, potential of the
economy, potential of the environment, and potential of institutions (local government). Each
criterion consists of several influencing factors (subcriteria). The surveyed group involved 14
decision makers employed in the District Office in Nowy Targ. All of them were responsible for
making key decisions in planning and implementation of district strategies. The AIP
(Aggregation of Individual Priorities) procedure was used to aggregate individual AHP results.
The priorities show that the most important factors influencing local development at the district
level are Entrepreneurship, Tourist attractions, Demographic potential, Innovation in business,
Clean environment and Competencies of the local government employees. These aspects should
be the main directions for strategic interventions in the years 2015-2022.
