Abstract: In Venezuela decision making in public management has become difficult, product of the social and political polarization, which has generated the absence of decisions or controversial and non consensual decisions. The purpose of this analysis is to contextualize the use of the analytical hierarchy on public management for decision making in complex and subjective environments; the methodological approach is descriptive type, a non experimental design transectional, sampling is directed non probability and data collection technique is secondary. The result includes the use of the analytic hierarchy to generate decisions evaluating subjective criteria in an objective procedure that favors consensus in decision making.
