Creation and implementation of development strategies of communes/municipalities, cities, districts/counties and voivodships in Poland and other CEE 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 and do not “fall into the drawers” – they are implemented in practice. Some local/regional governments, my regular clients, entrust me with developing new strategy every few years . Working on strategies, I use knowledge & experience from my scientific, didactic, training, coaching and public activities.
Some local/regional 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/evaluations as well as reviews of strategy drafts prepared by officials and consulting companies.
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 am able to combine modern trends with local traditions and conditions, listen to and understand the arguments of stakeholders, inspire and find ways to solve problems. Thanks to this, I received several dozen reference letters.
