Abstract: The major theme of this research is to model the customer receptivity aspects of a telecom service provider organisation based on their interrelationships. ISM brings into consideration of a system of directly and indirectly related elements, which maps the complex organisational issues. In this paper, ISM has been test implemented for customer receptivity aspects of a telecom service provider organisation. Qualitative criteria are often accompanied by ambiguities and vagueness. This makes fuzzy logic a more natural approach to this kind of modelling. Therefore, the same work has been precisely analysed by fuzzy logic. The results are supported with managerial implications and scope for further research.

Keywords: customer receptivity; interpretive structural modelling; FISM; fuzzy ISM; telcoms; telecommunications firms; India; fuzzy logic.
