Özet

Local conditions have important effects on strategy-making processes in natural resources management and also in forestry. From this viewpoint, the aim of the paper is to investigate how the strategic priorities differ among local forestry services. Thus, the research was conducted on a regional forest directorate as a sample case that has seven forestry enterprises that have close locations. On the other hand, as it is known that disciplines related to natural resources management must consider multiple factors in stages of decision making and also maintain their activities in a dynamic structure. Thus, there is a need for an easily applicable and flexible method for strategy prioritization in these disciplines. Therefore the paper also aims to introduce a decision model adaptable and simply applicable for provincial forestry organizations.
