The purpose of this study is structural analysis of the mediating role of organizational commitment in the relationship between organizational agility and organizational intelligence with organizational performance among academic center of education units in the northwest of Iran. The study method is descriptive-correlational and the statistical population including all employees of the Northwestern academic center of education units (West Azerbaijan and East Azerbaijan, Ardabil and Kurdistan), which consist of total of 320 people. The sample size is 206 people who are selected by stratified random sampling method according to the size of the population. Standard questionnaires of organizational performance, organizational agility, organizational intelligence and organizational commitment are used to collect data. The content validity of the instruments is confirmed by experts and an appropriate validity level is reported for them. Confirmatory factor analysis is also used for the construct validity of the instruments. Reliability coefficients for organizational commitment, organizational intelligence, organizational agility and organizational performance questionnaires were reported to be .79,.89,.87, and .4, respectively. To analyze the data, descriptive statistics techniques including bar graphs, mean and standard deviation and inferential statistics including multiple regression and structural equation modeling are used. The results revealed that organizational intelligence, organizational agility and organizational commitment have a direct impact on organizational performance. Also, organizational intelligence and organizational agility had an indirect effect on organizational performance by mediating role of organizational commitment. Therefore, it is suggested that the managers of academic center of education units pay more attention to establishing and implementing organizational intelligence and organizational agility to increase organizational commitment and ultimately improve organizational performance.
