Abstract: 

Due to limited organizational budget, priority and performance of suitable technology strategies to eliminate or reduce technology gaps has got high importance. Ranking and proper choice of present and newfangled technologies needed by an organization for performance will elevate competitive privileges of the organization. In common methods first specific strategies, then all are ranked and executed according to the limitations of organization resources. In that case it is possible to choose homogeneous strategies which will raise unbalanced growth of the organization. In this paper, firstly the condition of present technology of organization is evaluated through CAPTECH method and proper strategies are defined. Contrary to common methods, introducing and using a novel heuristic method, strategies are classified in several clusters. Secondly, strategies within each cluster are ranked by TOPSIS method and at the time of execution a top strategy is chosen from each cluster. Thereupon, the efficiency of applying the strategies and possibility of balanced growth of organization will dramatically increase. To evaluate the proposed method, a case study has been done in a cold storage facility and the positive results have been demonstrated.
