The 375 members of the sample were selected based on Morgan and Krejcie table. The sampling method was multistage. Data collection tool was the questionnaires of organizational agility and organizational health. The questionnaires were valid based on the expert’s judgment, and Cronbach's alpha reliability value of the questionnaires was 0.88. The data were analyzed by descriptive and inferential statistics (Pearson correlation, regression, and t-test), using SPSS software.
Results: The correlation between organizational agility and organizational health was positive and significant (r=0.66, P<0.05). A significant difference was observed between mean organizational agility and mean reference (-0.43, P<0.05) and also between mean organizational health and mean reference (-0.55, P<0.05).
