Abstract

Knowledge and technology can be used as a capability to gain business benefits in organizations. In this regard, in addition to the use of technology in the production of products, technology commercialization to transfer technology to other organizations is considered a practical approach to gain business benefits. Accordingly, this study aimed to identify and prioritize commercialization components in Iran’s gas and oil industry to transfer technology to other industries and organizations since there are high potentials to commercialize and transfer technology in this industry. After reviewing the previous literature and interviewing experts using semi-structured questions and the snowball sampling method, 46 attributes were detected and classified as 10 main components. Then, the confirmatory factor analysis method in SMART PLS software confirmed the 44 attributes in 10 components. Shannon's entropy method and WASPAS method were used to weigh and prioritize the extracted components. As a result of this research, the three main priorities of importance in the components of commercialization were identified the “enterprise capabilities of technology transfer”, “technological capabilities and resources”, and “independent technology commercialization strategies in the oil and gas industry” respectively.
