An Approach to the Selection of Optimal Transformation Strategy in Seaports
After theoretical considerations of organizational changes, the research findings were presented in relation to the following: the selection of the optimal model for implementation of organizational changes in the port that is subject of analysis and establishing of the character of the correlation between the organizational changes, the productivity level and the ship service time (components related to cargo handling operations). Through the implementation of AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) method, it has been identified that the optimal model for implementation of organizational changes in the studied port is restructuring. Starting from the relevant elements of the process model of productivity improvement, direct interdependency has been identified between the character of organizational changes and the level of productivity per full-time employee in the port, as well as the existence of correlation between the character of organizational changes, productivity level in the cargo handling process ship service time.KEY WORDS: port, organisational changes, AHP method
