The purpose of the present research is to evaluate and validate the Jihadi organization model. Regarding the significance of inherent models in management and organization field and according to the necessity of using authentic models in the organizations, the Jihadi model was selected as an inherent model for evaluation and validation. It includes three behavioral, contextual, and structural dimensions of 23 components and 135 indicators. The model was evaluated using field method in Tehran municipality organization. Four districts of Tehran municipality were randomly selected through two-step clustering sampling method, of which 375 employees were selected as research sample for questionnaire distribution. Analyses using structural equation modeling, confirmatory factor analysis, path analysis, and fitting analysis demonstrated the Jihadi organization model is totally fitted and validated. Thus, it is recommended that further studies frequently verify the proposed model and apply in the organization if it is validated again.
