Organizational agility along with other management theories plays a key role in the success of companies in turbulent market environments. In this regard, information technology effect on the agility of organizations and has a fundamental role in understanding and reacting to the environment.

The random sampling method was used and the population of the case study consisted of 300 people (60 questionnaires from each of the departments). The used questionnaire consists of two sections; the first part is used to measure the use of information technology in organizations, and the second part evaluated various organizational agility capabilities (speed, competence, accountability and flexibility). The collected data were analyzed using SPSS software. The results of the research showed the highest impact of information technology on speed, competence and accountability in agricultural jihad organization and on flexibility in regional water organization. In general, it can be said that the average impact of information technology on agility indicators in all organizations is almost in average range.
