The decision making model of the commanders of this division was designed by identifying the relations between concepts and central categories by following the standardized model of Strauss. It was compared with theory of activity, which is an analytical and efficient tool, for having a deeper study of the issue and expressing its innovation position and providing a better description. As a result, six main categories and a single core category were identified through data analysis.
