Results: A structured matrix questionnaire was developed to determine the relationships between indicators. The data obtained from the questionnaire was analyzed using structural-interpretive modeling and mapped in three levels into an interactive network, which resulted in the "customer-oriented" factor at the highest level. Also, the influence and the degree of dependence of these factors on each other in the power-dependency matrix were investigated.
Conclusion: "Customer Orientation" and "Delegation" indices in the Affinity-Dependency Power Matrix of the dependent region mean the highest dependency and least influence, and the factors of "effective communication", "planning", "systems", "Risk taking" lies in the connected area, which has the highest penetration power and the highest amount of dependency.
