Comparison of the Use of Decision-Making Methods in Czech Companies as a Result of the Covid-19 Pandemic
To quickly address the changes that have significantly affected our lives in the last two years, it is crucial for organisations to be able to use more sophisticated tools in their work processes. The paper aims to compare changes in the application of individual decision–making methods within Czech companies, focusing on tools based on data analysis. This comparison is created from the results of pilot research (conducted just before the outbreak of Covid–19 in February 2020) and a targeted questionnaire survey, which also dealt with decision–making methods in detail and emphasised the use of business intelligence (conducted in May 2021). The paper evaluates the position of data analysis compared to other methods between two groups of employees: managers and specialists without subordinates. Results show a growing trend in the utilisation of data analysis and MCDM methods, especially among managers. However, the application of MCDM is not as yet widely implemented by employees.
