Eydi et al’s (2012) organizational effectiveness questionnaire was used for data gathering. 12 sport management scholars approved the validity of questionnaire and also reliability was calculated to be .97 0/0. Lisrel software was used for confirmatory factor analysis and verifying fitting model and relationships between constructs.rnResults: The results showed that work force expertise (.88 0/0), organizational interaction (.88 0/0), productivity (.87), work force cohesion (.84 0/0), planning (.84 0/0), stability (.81 0/0), flexibility (.780/0), and resources (.74 0/0) had the most impact on organizational effectiveness respectively. Confirmatory factor analysis results showed that patterns of internal process model (e.g., organizational interaction & stability) and rational-goal model (e.g., planning & productivity) were most important models for organizational effectiveness in Iraq sports federations. Also, football, track and field, weightlifting and basketball federations obtained highest means of organization effectiveness respectively.rnConclusion: According to our results, in order to achieve organizational effectiveness in Iraq sports federations we suggest that attention should be paid to a variety of indices; among the most important ones are the use and recruitment of skilled and professional workforces.rnKeywords: Competing value framework, Iraqi sports federations, Organizational effectiveness.
