Considering the contemporary business settings, managers’ role is more than essential to the viability and further development of an organization. Managers should possess such skills in order to effectively cope with the competition. Multiple attributes decision making (MADM) is an approach employed to solve problems involving selection from among a finite number of alternatives. The aim of this study is to develop a methodology to evaluate managers based on integrating fuzzy AHP and fuzzy TOPSIS approaches. In this paper, I have taken into consideration some important criteria which affect the process of managers selection. I have calculated the weights for each criterion based on Interval-valued fuzzy AHP and then inputted these weights to the fuzzy TOPSIS method to rank managers. The entire methodology is illustrated with the help of a numerical example and finally the rank of each managers is determined according to its results. The proposed method enables decision analysts to better understand the complete evaluation process and provide a more accurate, effective, and systematic decision support tool. Also, the proposed method provides a useful
way for handling fuzzy TOPSIS based on fuzzy numbers.
