"The selection of an appropriate strategy is critical for a university's success, and each university needs to capitalize on its own specialties and competencies for a competitive advantage. Strategy creation and planning in universities is generally a collective effort which relies on consensus. It is a complex process involving the setting of objectives and goals to achieve the strategic vision, and an analysis tool for evaluating and comparing different options and prioritizing objectives and goals is required. A high deductive capacity is necessary for aggregating the different trade-offs while prioritizing, which is challenging for a human mind. This thesis demonstrates the use of the Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) as a structured approach to such decision making, which allows trade-offs to be considered in a systematic manner"--Abstract, page iii.
