In our article we want to present Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) as support methodology for optimizing decision making processes. We will focus on making strategy decisions in a bank with applying both basic and adjusted AHP application models. Due to our research we will present four groups of banking application models. We also describe guidelines of Thomas L. Saaty’s AHP methodology. The AHP provides an objective way for reaching an optimal decision for both individual and group decision makers with a limited level of inconsistency. It makes it possible to select the best alternative (under several criteria) from a number of alternatives through carrying out pairwise comparison judgements. Overall priorities for ranking the alternatives are being calculated on the basis of pairwise comparisons.
