The aim of this paper is to perform an analysis of the command and control function of cities in the years 2006 and 2016 based on the method of interpolation models. The analysis was performed both for individual sectors of the economy as well as for the global, comprehensive Index of Potential. A shift of the center of gravity of the command and control function of cities was observed based on the Multinational Corporation Potential Index. The shift occurred in the easterly direction. This also pertains to sector indices, although the centroids of knowledge-based sectors such as information technology and healthcare were the westernmost ones. At the same time, information technology was the only sector whose centroid shifted to the west in the study period. Moreover, the magnitude of the shift of the center of gravity of the number of corporate headquarters in the studied cities does not converge to the shift of the centroid based on the value of the financial potential reflected by the Multinational Corporation Potential Index
