      Digital technologies have become an important part of education and educational activists pay special attention to these technologies in order to increase learners' engagement in three dimensions: cognitive, emotional and behavioral. Video is the most popular e-learning medium, but with the development of interactive video technology and the possibility of more learner interaction with content, it is important to examine the effects of interactive video on learners' engagement. The purpose of this study is to answer the question which of the linear video and interactive video have the greatest impact on learners' engagement and whether this effect is different in learning styles. For this purpose, in an experimental design, a training course was designed, half of which was presented as a linear video and the other half as an interactive video. The statistical population was educational specialist and training and development specialist who were selected by purposive and available sampling of 55 people. After completing the course, learners completed an engagement questionnaire and answered the four-choice test questions of the course. The internal validity of these two instruments was calculated using Cronbach's alpha coefficient, which was the participation evaluation form (0.878) and test (0.824). Using repeated measures design and paired t-test, the results showed that interactive video compared to linear video is significantly more effective on learners' engagement in three dimensions of cognitive, emotional and behavioral and is recommended to training and development specialists to use interactive videos. The theoretical and practical effects and applications of these findings in the field of organizational training and development are discussed. Manuscript Document

      The aim of this research is to identify the antecedents and components of workforce development and agility and also to offer a mixed model of meta-analysis and Fuzzy DEMATEL method in Maskan Bank. Workforce agility development antecedents of quantitative studies were extracted by Meta –Analysis. Then the effect size of antecedents (consequent of components) was calculated by CMA3 software. 3 out of 19 identified antecedents, were obtained with the effect size equal or greater than 0.5. The 3 antecedents include the intertwinement and the relationship between training and the system of recruitment and employment, the use of experts in training and development, and the pay and reward system. Afterwards the first questionnaire was given to experts for reviewing and screening the qualitative components as well as the components of interview. In the last phase acquired components of 3 antecedents with others acquired components of the first questionnaire were sent to experts via the second questionnaire. According to this, 4 components including "organizational intelligence", "low formalization," “perceptual skills” and "creative problem solving" had the most impact on other components. Components of “promptitude”, “organizational commitment”, “accountability” and “flexibility”, were the most influential components identified. In terms of the importance, “Adaptability” was identified as the most important component and “proactivity” was identified as the least important one. Manuscript Document

      This study attempted to lay the ground for linking human resources data based on the results of the organizational excellence model for about 51 parent and subsidiary companies of the National Iranian Gas Company using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning methods. The goal was to present a model for clustering chief organizational managers based on the companies’ evaluation using the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM)-based excellence model. The unique characteristic of this method is that it is formed based on the actual performance and output of successful organizations, headed by successful managers and leaders. Accordingly, a performance-based excellence model can be achieved in the future. The outcomes of model evaluation for 2017, 2018, and 2019 for 51 companies affiliated with the National Iranian Gas Company were first clustered. Clustering was performed for 3776 pieces of data via AI-based methods, and coding was done in Python. This applied study aimed to design and develop a novel method for discovering the experts and scientifically classifying the organization’s human resources based on credible data. It also aimed to integrate novel scientific domains of AI, including clustering, to pave the ground for human resources research. In the applied dimension, the results were used in organizational planning and decision-making to generate a tool whereby the future managerial performance of the organization and staff can be predicted based on appropriate human resources data. Finally, a ranking is presented based on the competency gap by using Fisher discriminant ratio (FDR). Manuscript Document

      This research focuses on the need to develop meaningful training programs as a part of the reform of the secondary education system. Given that preparing the future managers is a responsibility we all share today, this study aims at designing a model for training future managers. This study adopted a qualitative exploratory approach. Accordingly, subsequent to reviewing the related literature, the semi-structured interviews with 15 selected senior managers in the Ministry of Education as well as experts and elites of the field were done. Participants were selected based on the snowball method. The interviews continued until the saturation level was achieved. Then, interviews were analyzed using the thematic analysis method. After analyzing the data and extracting the codes, they were classified into three major categories: 47 basic concepts, 18 organizers, and 5 inclusive themes, as the components of the model. The five inclusive themes were named as self-management, social factors, management of others, planning and the education system policy, and educational skills. Then, the model was designed based on the relationships among the themes. Finally, the research findings suggested that teaching management skills to adolescents, based on the recommended model of secondary school education system transformation, would lead to changes in the educational policy and development of such management skills as communication skills, critical thinking, leadership, and teamwork. At the end, recommendations are made based on the sub-themes obtained in each area and the key points raised by the experts of the field. Manuscript Document

      Current need for oil products and their applications in various fields, plus Iran’s potential has attracted significant investment in this field as the strategy of the Islamic Republic of Iran is to become self-sufficient and localize oil and gas industry.This study aimed to investigate the role of knowledge management in technological learning through the mediating variable of research and development activities in an oil and gas organization.To this end, a research model was presented based on theoretical studies, which yielded three hypotheses. A valid and reliable questionnaire was used to collect data to test the research hypotheses. The statistical population of the study included managers and experts of the company under study (n > 100). Due to the abnormality of data distribution, Smart PLS software was used to test the hypotheses. According to the software outputs, knowledge management affects research and development activities, research and development activities affect technological learning, and knowledge management affects technological learning. Therefore, better implementation of technological learning requires special attention to the creation, sharing and application of knowledge and experience that exists in the organization.

      The present study aimed to develop a model for performance coaching indices for public relations managers of petrochemical companies in the South Pars region. This applied study used exploratory content analysis to form categories including dimensions, components, and behavioral indices. A mixed-methods approach was used for data collection and analysis. In the qualitative phase, data were collected via interviews with experts in the field of coaching. The data collected in the qualitative phase were analyzed using content analysis of texts, interviews, and questionnaires with a Delphi approach. In the quantitative phase, data were collected via surveys with the network pairwise comparison questionnaire and the standard ACHIEVE performance measurement questionnaire. Twenty experts were recruited for the qualitative phase and 160 public relations managers for the quantitative phase. The results of the research showed that experts agreed on three individual, social, and organizational dimensions by consensus. Experts agreed on the indices obtained from the review of literature and interviews, which included eight individual indices, six social indices, and five organizational indices. Organizational dimension had the highest effect on performance management with a path coefficient of 4.6, followed by the individual dimension with a path coefficient of 2.55, and the social dimension with a path coefficient of 2.46. Based on path coefficient analysis in structural equations, the priority of indices (path coefficient) in the individual dimension was as follows: behavior and character (9.36), media literacy (2.33), cognitive intelligence and empowerment (7.25), personality (5.19), and accountability (8.9). The priority of indices for the social dimension was as follows: communication skills (4.28), status and position (3.26), participation (2.24), dynamism (5.19), altruism (3.17), and team planning (1.14). The obtained indices were tested for their relationship with performance components based on the ACHIEVE model. The test results showed that the path coefficients of individual, social and organizational dimensions on performance management were 0.190, 0.267, and 0.397, respectively. This means that the factors have a positive and significant effect on performance management and the developed model is approved. Manuscript Document

      The aim of the present research was to optimize the competencies of strategic managers in state organizations. This applied research was conducted quantitatively to collect the data. A researcher-made questionnaire was used to determine the level of consensus among respondents on the priority of the proposed indicators for the competency of strategic managers. The relationship between the components of the metaheuristic model was determined by 122 senior and middle managers who were selected by random stratified sampling from the studied organizations: Tehran Governor's Office, Administrative and Recruitment Affairs Organization, Supreme Audit Court, Welfare Organization, Iran Health Insurance Organization (IHIO). Data were analyzed using the metaheuristic approach method based on genetic algorithm and decision tree, using the WEKA and RAPIDMINER software programs. Based on the results of the Shannon’s method, ethics earned the highest priority. Furthermore, 11 out of the 16 extracted factors affecting competency were selected as the optimal characteristics of strategic managers in state organizations using metaheuristic algorithms. These were knowledge competencies, skill competencies, basic competencies, psychological competencies, ethics, general competencies, interactions and communications, resource management, strategic thinking, transformism, and leadership. The findings also show that the most effective factors must be examined to identify and evaluate the competencies of strategic managers in state organizations. Manuscript Document
