Abstract
Introduction: One of the most important processes that is constantly being repeated, and all the coaches are in some way associated with it, is the decision making process. Deciding is an essential element in every sport, especially open, fast and dynamic sports such as volleyball, football and basketball. It is clear that a sports coach has little opportunity during the competition to provide the best way to feed his athlete. Therefore, these coaches should make the best decision in the shortest possible time. All coaches at all levels and in all sports fields need to look at the factors influencing decisions. Understanding the culture governing decisions and examining their relationship with the effectiveness of decisions can be taken to improve the decisions of the sports coaches. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine the decision culture and its relationship with the effectiveness of sport coaches' decisions.
Methodology: The statistical population of this study was a descriptive-survey of all body-building instructors in Tehran. Sampling was done by 70 instructors (44 men, 26 women). The data gathering tool was a demographic data form and two researcher-made questionnaires. The content and content validity was confirmed by ten sports management professors and its reliability was determined by Cronbach's alpha coefficient for decision culture culture (α = 0.783) and the effectiveness of sport coaches decisions. To analyze the data, descriptive statistics (mean, standard deviation and percent) and inferential statistics (Kolmogorov-Smirnov tests, single sample T-test, Pearson correlation coefficient) and SPSS/24 software were used.
Results: It was also found that there was a significant difference between the decisions based on social responsibility (p = 0.359 / sig = 0.002), spirituality (p = 0.378 / sig = 0.001), morality (p = 0.256 / sig = 0.03) and philosophy (p = 0.329 / sig = 0.005). There was a significant relationship between the effectiveness of sport coaches' decisions, but there was no significant correlation between decisions based on rules and regulations (p = 0.204 / sig = 0.08) and the effectiveness of decisions.
Discussion: It is also possible to use the above findings to complete the theoretical framework and to train sports educators.
