Weng-Kun Liu
Abstract— The purpose of this study is to evaluate the important indicators of managerial competences for MNC executives. This research attempts to construct the initial indicators of managerial competence for MNC executives. Then, a focus group of MNC experts was established to discover the managerial competences relating to the job extent of MNC executives. The procedure of adopting the Fuzzy Delphi Method (FDM) and the Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process (Fuzzy AHP) are applied to evaluate the structure of managerial competences for MNC executives. The research results indicate that the most important indicators of managerial competence were professional knowledge and leadership, which could not only provide MNCs a guidance to select higher managerial competence of MNC executives, but also select appropriate MNC executives to carry out global business successfully.

Index Terms— Fuzzy analytic hierarchy process (fuzzy ahp), fuzzy delphi method (fdm), managerial competence.
