The present study aimed to design a strategic human resource management model in the Ministry of Science with emphasis on strategic thinking. The statistical population of the present study consisted of two groups, the first group included experts familiar with the subject under study and the second group included faculty members at universities in the southeast region of the country (Kerman, Sistan and Baluchestan, Hormozgan). Stratified sampling method in line with the volume of classes was also performed. At last, a total of 340 questionnaires were completed and collected. Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin (KMO) criteria were used to ensure the validity of the data and to examine the accuracy of the sampling before the factor analysis. Based on the findings, the value of KMO on strategic thinking, strategic human resources management were 0.903 and 0.913, respectively, which is an acceptable value. Data were analyzed using SPSS software version 23 and AMOS version 23. In the present study, a significance level was considered 0.05. Statistical methods such as one-sample t-test, confirmatory factor analysis and structural equations were used to investigate the research questions. Results from the structural equation model demonstrated that there was a significant relationship between strategic thinking and strategic human resource management.
