Abstract: The Analytic Hierarchy Process is presented as a conceptual framework for linking systems and planning. Part I, Systems and Complexity, covers the rationale of systems theory and shows how a system\'s purpose, functions, flows and structure are represented in an AHP model. Part II, Strategic Planning, covers current theories of strategic planning and how to use the AHP in a forward-backward planning process. Examples of forward and backward planning are given.
