This study focuses on the decision-making process of Greek accommodation providers during a period characterised by multiple crises (recession; political and financial instability; social unrest; a refugee crisis). Using fuzzy-set Qualitative Comparative Analysis the research employs a nationwide survey of 243 hotel managers/owners. The results reveal five sufficient configurations characterised by the development of enterprising competitiveness, the operational aspects, marketing and promotional concerns, business productivity and efficiency, and the financial issues of hotels. The research also compares asymmetric analysis with the dominant linear methods (regression and Cramer's V), highlighting the suitability of the former in chaordic systems. It also progresses from fit to predictive validity for the examined models. The study's contribution is to both theoretical and methodological tourism and hospitality domain.
