Bruno Trstenjak, And rijana Kos Kavran, and Ivana Bujan
Abstract—The purpose of this paper is to analyse Croatian national development strategy and Croatian local/regional development strategies. Upon defining the purpose we can define the main goal of this paper and which is creation of a tool based on funny logics which will give results on whether the chosen areas of analysed strategies are correspondent or not. For that purposes linguistic variables for areas of importance of national and regional development strategies have been defined with corresponding weight impact factors. Defined areas have been of various development priorities and have been sorted according to SWOT analysis components. Upon definition of variables and weight impact factors the analysis has been conducted.

Index Terms—Development strategy, fuzzy TOPSIS, national strategy, k-means clustering.
