This paper is geared toward evaluation of the relation between the organizational culture and creativity of managers and experts of Khuzestan Physical Education Organization. The data set used in this research included all managers and experts of Khuzestan Physical Education Organization. The data set was incorporated in this paper as a sample in full (n=230). Questionnaires of personal traits (developed by the author), Marshal Sashkin organizational culture and RenSip creativity were used to collect information. This is a correlational research conducted using Pearson correlation test, independent groups T-test, one-way analysis of variance and LSD post hoc test. Multiple regression tests were also conducted to determine the predictive equation based on other predictive variables. Results indicated that there is a significant positive correlation (P<0.045) between the organizational culture and creativity of Physical Training Organization's managers. Results of the multiple correlation method showed that among components of the organizational culture, power of the organizational culture (Plt;0.010) and attention to clients (Plt;0.029) have a linear relation with creativity. Thus, they may be used for prediction of creativity. However, no significant relation was noted between components of the organizational culture (achievement of goals, adapting to changes and coordination of work groups) and creativity. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
