Abstract

The article discusses issues related to the implementation of modern transformational development technologies in the field of reforming local self-government through the formation of capable united territorial communities. The article claims that today in Ukraine the first evolutionary stage of voluntary community unification has already been passed and now Ukraine is moving on to the next stage - community unification by the principle of ability. This second stage of decentralization involves a radical reduction in the number of districts through the unification and creation of new capable administrative and territorial units at the subregional level. This necessitates a change in the functions of local governments from the implementation of the existing external strategy, to structures that independently develop strategies and tactics, and are responsible for their decisions to the residents of the communities. The role and specific features of capable united territorial communities, as public law units that have all the necessary resources to solve local issues provided for by law, are described. It is proved that strategic goals require a systematic, step-by-step technology for the development and implementation of both strategic and tactical levels. However, among specialists from local economic development, certain gaps in understanding how to turn strategies into tactical development plans through projects and programs have been identified. Although project management has all the necessary tools to create mechanisms for implementing the developed strategy. It is the lack of knowledge on the practical application of well-known project management tools, which causes failures in the implementation of strategies. The article notes that the failure in the developed strategy implementation can be due to both shortcomings in the development of the strategy itself and errors in the development of tactical measures for its implementation. Highlighted shortcomings in the training of project competencies of persons related to the development of program-targeted documents in the newly united territorial communities. The development of transformational tools for united territorial communities through the integration of strategic planning and tactical project management is proposed.
