Technology evaluation is a process which systematically studies and measures the impacts of introducing, developing, changing and modifying technology in an economic institution or a society. Intending to present a cluster of technological projects, while moving beyond modern industrial technologies to touch ecological technologies, this research is performed on the technological projects of the Iranian Tele-Communication Company as a case-study. Experts who at least held Master’s Degree with more than five-years experience comprised the statistical population of the study. The sample consisted of 10 subjects who were selected through snowball sampling. In order to reach a theoretical framework, identifying variables, preparing the research literature and data collection tools such as interviews and questionnaires, the survey method was applied. To compute the validity of data-collection tools, the Fuzzy Delphi technique was used. Based on Fuzzy clustering method, 15 indexes were finally identified and were classified in five categories including: (a) analysis, including prioritizing the needs, selecting technological solutions and analyzing challenges, needs and opportunities; (b) identification, including capability acceptance, capability completion and capability renovation; (c) project financial ownership, including investment level and financial appraisal; (d) designing and engineering, including concordance with the market and knowledge of technology; (e). empowerment, including identifying success factors, acquiring the technology, benchmarking and creating competitive advantage.
