The three management methods MbI, MbO, and MbV are evaluated and the most adequate management method for companies is determined using Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process (FAHP). This study also gives a chance to compare the results of AHP and FAHP for the same problem, and shows the power of FAHP in capturing experts' knowledge.
