As an instance, Analytic Hierarchy Process model (AHP) has helped to perfect interpretation and systematic decision. Application of this model in control process and evaluation of organization performance were investigated. The opinion of senior chief managers and mid managers about organizational priorities in terms of plan's elements and organizational politicians was gathered via inquiring forms and real performance was specified.
