The present study seeks to design a pluralistic organizational model in Iranian Aviation Industries Organization through a descriptive survey. The main concern of the study is that the main organizational elements of the current aviation industry are not capable of positive interaction with the pluralistic and paradoxical elements of its external and internal environments. To solve this problem, a survey is performed on the literature, and 54 main values of pluralistic organizations are extracted and then reduced to 8 main values using Delphi technique and 30 academic and industrial experts' opinions. Furthermore, the conceptual model of a pluralistic organization in aviation industry is designed by the interaction of 8 extracted values through Delphi technique. A questionnaire is then designed, and its reliability and validity tested by Cronbach's Alpha and affirmative factor analysis. Moreover, hypothesis testing for 16 hypotheses is performed through route analysis which leads to the approval of the conceptual model. This study indicates that "varied environmental stakeholders", "pluralistic structure", "non-occurrence technology" and "varied human resources" will drive the organization to show pluralistic behaviors, such as horizontal integrating, networking and road-mapping. Also, the results show that such values have strong interaction with each other, while the most related variable in each value is identified too.
