The aim of this study was to fit regression equation of knowledge management and organizational effectiveness in Iran sport organizations to determine the effect of knowledge management processes on organizational effectiveness. The statistical population consisted of all staff managers of the Ministry of Sport and Youth, executive board of National Olympic Committee, staff managers of the National Olympic Academy and board of directors of premier sports federations. The sample size equaled the population size (n=150). This search was descriptive correlation and was conducted as field. The content validity of the questionnaires was determined by the theoretical foundations of the research and professors and experts' viewpoints and the reliability through Cronbach’s alpha coefficient for knowledge management questionnaire (α=0.88) and organizational effectiveness (α=0.83). The descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyze the data. The results showed a significant positive relationship between knowledge management and its processes and organizational effectiveness in Iran sport organizations. Knowledge transfer had the high correlation coefficient while knowledge record had the lowest correlation with the organizational effectiveness (r=0.86, p=0.01). The multivariate regression results showed that 0.765% of the variance in organizational effectiveness was related to the knowledge management processes (p<0.01, R2=0.756) and knowledge application, record, acquistion and transfer had the greatest importance in the prediction of changes in organizational effectiveness (p<0.01). The findings of this research showed that the design of a knowledge-oriented structure at all levels of Iran sport organizations improves the effectiveness of these organizations. In this regard, staff managers as knowledge producers and national knowledge investment play an important role.
