Background and Aim: Nowadays, with many challenges in organizations such as hospitals, strategic management is considered necessary more than ever. Without strategic management in organizations, even survival is not possible. Given the importance of strategic management on organizational innovation and productivity, especially in hospitals, this study aimed to investigate the relationship between strategic thinking with innovation and productivity in different levels of managers in a military hospital.
Methods: In a cross sectional study, all senior, middle and operational managers in a military hospital were entered by the census method in 2017. The data gathering tool included 3 questionnaires; strategic thinking measurement questionnaire based on the Liedtka model, the productivity questionnaire was based on the Hersey - Blanchard Model and Chang-Lee innovation questionnaire. Data analysis was performed using Pearson correlation, using SPSS 18 software.
Results: A total of 17 managers with a mean age of 45 years were included. A significant relationship between strategic thinking and productivity (r=0.59, P=0.013) and also with innovation (r=0.54, P=0.021). In this way, the more strategic thinking among the managers of the organization, the more innovation and productivity in the organization will increase Also, there was not a significant relationship between strategic thinking and age, work experience, management work experience and degree of education (p >0.05).
Conclusion: Considering the meaningful relationship of strategic thinking with productivity and innovation in this study, one can conclude that by reducing strategic thinking, the amount of productivity and innovation in the organization is reduced, leading to stagnation and failure.
