ANALYZING THE TASK-MATURITY LEVEL. THE EXAMPLE OF A POLISH PRIVATE UNIVERSITY

Abstract

The issue of management efficiency is an extremely important subject of theoretical considerations and a significant practical problem as well. It applies to enterprises, public institutions and non-governmental organizations. It is impossible to omit it in the context of the functioning of modern universities. There are a number of system solutions in the literature that are aimed at ensuring high efficiency. A number of process management concepts can be indicated, as well as project management methodologies. In fact, for many contemporary organizations both types of activity (project and process) are extremely important. This justifies the search for concepts combining both approaches.

The aim of the paper is to present a pilot study of the level of a task-oriented organization in one of the Polish private universities. It was assumed that the adoption of the presented approach serves to ensure high operational and strategic efficiency. To analyze the situation, the method of AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) was used. The task-orientated model, proposed by J. Strojny, was assessed by a group of internal experts. An assessment was made in two dimensions: the significance of the model elements and the level of maturity of the organization under study. Expert marks were agreed upon within a Focus Group Interview. Marks for criteria and a general mark on the level of maturity were aggregated using a weighted average. The results were analyzed in terms of cognitive, methodological and utilitarian aspects.
