ABSTRACT

Strategy prioritizing in strategic plans requires evaluating large amount of information and data. Technically, this process is carried out by a heterogeneous planning team within an organization who are generally working in different departments and management levels. This situation creates a significant problem in group decision making and in its process since each and every group members may think their departments' benefits when making a decision rather than overall organization's goals and targets. To overcome this situation, this study looks for an alternative way for the group decision making which can enable groups to follow an objective path to overcome subjective views and decisions. Accordingly, the aim of this study is to develop a group decision making model based on the strategic planning template. Strategic planning template chosen for this study belongs one of the Turkish Government Agency operating in mining industry. Developed model was build based on the ANP-VIKOR hybrid method. Findings showed that the new developed model facilitates shorter decision making time, enables to get more benefit out of the group and allows analyzing large amount of rationality for the government agency.
