The general goal of this research was to study the most effective Intra-Organizational factors in the success of the poultry-farm cooperatives in Tehran province. To this end, viewpoints of 151 managers and members of agricultural cooperatives were collected and studied. Survey study was performed to evaluate the effects of four major parameters including member awareness of the principles and philosophy, training programs of members, participation in cooperatives' affairs, and expertise and ability of managers on the success index of poultry cooperatives. The results showed that the degree of members' share of training and knowledge of cooperatives' principles was very low also participation in cooperative's affairs and the managers' expertise and skills were medium. Using multivariate regression analysis, the above-mentioned four factors showed significant effects on the success of the poultry cooperatives with coefficients of 1.87, 0.46, 0.57 and 1.04, respectively.
