Assessment systems are necessary in the present age with dramatic changes in management knowledge. Thus, lack of assessment systems in different sectors of an organization to evaluate resources, staffs, strategies and objectives signs for presence of illness in the organization. Organizations are always involved with dynamic markets which require speed, compatibility and alignment as key procedures for achievement of competitive advantages. Any organization needs an evaluation system to be aware of its activities utility in complex and dynamic environments. On the other hand, lack of control and evaluation systems means imbalance relationships in internal and external environments of organization which leads to senility or death of organization. Since evaluation of organizations is done to realize weaknesses and strengths, to increase abilities and competencies and to make managerial decisions; this paper seeks to assess Iranian steel firms using principles of strategy-focused organization. So far, key success factors in organizations have been studied by researchers. However, this study focuses on principles of strategy-focused organization. These principles are considered as independent variables. The dependent variables of the present research are performance results. To conduct the research, the questionnaire is used and distributed in the statistical sample including a number of managers in steel firms.
