Based on the analysis of this research, the effectiveness and efficiency of technical-engineering groups is not mutually balanced. Efficiency of technical-engineering groups of Iran’s universities is more than their effectiveness. Therefore, it is recommended that the effectiveness and efficiency of technical-engineering groups are paid attention more than ever. It must be planned in a systematic way by utilization of effective actions to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of technical-engineering groups simultaneously.]]>Ashley, J.T., J.L. Bially, C.
