Strategy for gmina is a plan for future directions of development and determines objectives and method of their implementation. The strategy is a necessary element in proper gmina management. It should not be treated as a closed system because gmina development is determined by changing conditions both external and internal. During the construction of the strategy a few primary stages should be distinguished: analysis of basic development processes, analysis of strong and weak points of gmina's social and economic system, determining objectives for the future, working out preliminary draft of the strategy and submitting it for public consultations, final selection of the strategy and preparing specific programmes as well as preparing a plan for implementing the strategy. Very important element of developing the strategy is to include local community in the process in order to give the community a sense of influence of the future of their gmina.
