Abstract

Capturing experts knowledge when evaluating new venture proposals in investment decisions is an active and ongoing area of research. Determining the agreement among experts on the importance of the variables involved in these decisions is crucial.This study presents a new approach to better under-standing the multi-criteria decision making process of expert investors that is based on a combination of the Order Preference by Similarity to an Ideal Solution method (TOPSIS) and a measure of consensus. A real case has been conducted among 28 experts to understand the relevant variables by obtaining their opinions by means of hesitant linguistic terms. Results provide not only a ranked list of variables obtained from the opinions of the group of experts and a measure of the consensus reached on their importance
