Purpose: This study aimed to identify strategies to enhance collaboration among managerial organizations for improving the provision of desirable services in the peripheral rural areas of Khash city.
Methodology: This is an applied study of an objective and exploratory nature. Also, a qualitative-quantitative method was used for data analysis. Data was analyzed using Grounded theory by SPSS software. The research tools were interviews and questionnaires. The statistical population included council members, village administrators, and Jihad-e-Sazandegi officials. A total of 35 individuals were selected by purposive sampling.
Results: The economic and social measures aligned with the performance of rural service management, adopting effective leadership styles, coordination, harmonizing tasks and authorities among organizations, and standardizing and specifying the performance of managers have been identified as strategies to enhance collaboration among managerial organizations for improving services in rural areas. Multiple regression analysis results demonstrate a significant correlation (0.643) between providing services to peripheral rural Khash regions and the strategies above. The regression fit model indicates that 74% of the strategy can explain the improvement of services to peripheral rural areas. Standardizing and specifying managers' performance have the most significant impact on enhancing collaboration among managerial organizations.
Conclusion: Managerial organizations can enhance collaboration and improve services in rural areas by standardizing and specifying managers' performance at the organizational level.
