Background and objective: Flexible management is the theory of focusing on the people, but good governance examines the characteristics within a system, and it is general and organizational. The theory of good governance, which builds on the theoretical foundation of client-agent theory, believed that all economic behavior cannot be accommodated in the context of demand-supply. The importance of good governance, apart from its economic implications for Iranian society, is that it may make the democratic process a little easier. Therefore, the relationship between good governance and management flexibility at Tehran University of Medical Sciences has been investigated.
Method: To this end, a questionnaire containing 40 questions was provided to the respondents. Given the explanations provided, the main question of the research is whether there is a relationship between flexible management and good governance? Therefore, the study examined the relationship between flexible management with the components of good governance including consequentialism, promotion of values, effectiveness of roles and tasks, clarification and capacity building using Smart PLS software.
Result: Regarding the path coefficient of 0.766 and t value (44.418), flexible management has a significant positive relationship with consequentialism and according to the path coefficient of 0.720 and t value (41.049) with promotion of values.
