Local and regional authorities who trusted me:

Creation and implementation of development strategies of communes/municipalities, cities, districts/counties and voivodships in Poland and other Central European Countries is my main activity, apart from scientific work. I have been dealing with this since 1994 and as an author or co-author I developed nearly 80 of them. They are adopted by resolutions of councils and do not “fall into the drawers” – they were or are implemented in practice. Some local governments, my regular clients, entrust me with developing new versions of their strategy every few years (e.g. Polish communes of: Polkowice, Bogatynia, Grębocice, Nowogrodziec, Lądek-Zdrój, Węgliniec, Przemków, Marciszów; poviats: Polkowice, Jeleniogórski, and Zgorzelec). In working on strategies, I use knowledge and experience from my scientific, didactic, training, coaching and public activities.

Some local governments entrust me with support for implementation or comprehensive organization of a commune/city/district strategy implementation system. Therefore, I am building and training Strategy Implementation Teams or Strategic Governance Departments, I develop implementation ordinances and resolutions, monitor / evaluate strategies during and after their implementation, etc.

I carry out strategic audits for authorities improving their governance, i.e. comprehensive assessments of the quality of strategic governance conducted in local government. I also review strategy drafts prepared by other entities. I also prepare some strategy implementation programs, e.g. programs for solving social problems, entrepreneurship development programs, local development programs, etc.

During the work I cooperate closely with the authorities, residents, entrepreneurs and other partners. I provide authorities with knowledge of strategic governance and prepare them for practical use of strategy. It is always my priority to build such a strategy that will bring maximum benefits to the local community, economy, environment and local government authorities. I use effective planning tools. I can build a social consensus around the strategy and its implementation. I am able to combine modern trends with local traditions and conditions, listen to and understand the arguments of authorities, inspire and find ways to solve problems. Thanks to this, I received several dozen reference letters for the strategies I have completed and implemented.
