Administration of organizations in Iran generally is similar with one that uses old management techniques and organizational structures which its roots goes backs to the beginning of 20th century. The functional view and hydraulic structures have caused Iranians organizations with low productivity and cooperation. As result, they are involved with unreasonable and fluctuating level of quality, high finished cost and overheads. On the other hand, substantial and rapid changes in the today’s world, especially in the past two decades in the area of information technology and expert systems have caused major changes in the way of administration, management and organizational leadership. To overcome such difficulties related to the traditional view, improvement methods have been suggested in the management literature. This paper aim to evaluate effects of implementation of such methods on the organizational climate and job attitude from personnel point of view by using a standard questionnaire in a sample production organization. Findings shows that implementation of improvement methods had considerable effect on technical and administrative personnel but very little on the managerial staff.
