Agata Pierscieniak and Mariola Grzebyk
The article presents the institutional analytical method that allows a comprehensive assessment of the level of public management in IX key areas and 20 specific criteria. It was used to present the institutional potential structure and to assess the level of institutional development in selected municipal offices in Poland. The results of pilot studies have shown that the institutional potential of the studied municipal offices is low and comes down to activities related to the preparation of procedures necessary to achieve public goals. Raising institutional potential is related to the development and implementation of procedures supporting the functioning of management areas in local government units. System support should be associated with the comprehensive implementation of evaluation and monitoring of the office’s activities as well as actions improving its functioning.
Keywords: institutional potential; local government unit; local administration.
