Therefor each pattern was effective in some components and relate in negative relation with another components. And show us owning a pattern of strategic thinking (synthetic - abstract) by members of the community study as a whole more than other types, owning pattern (synthetic - concrete) by (health sector) to being a competent one thing in most of his works, the pattern (synthetic - abstract) by (the banking sector) to being a contend with several issues at the same time, the pattern (analytical - abstract) by (education sector).Use the (Systemic perspective) by (health sector) and that integration and comprehensive work in the departments of hospitals, and the element of (Intelligent Opportunism) by (the banking sector) because it deals with money of others and needs to the profits always and liquidity, and the element of (Intelligent Opportunism) by (education Sector) so as to obtain the feature makes it superior to others. It was strategic thinking on the (level of organizational outcome) greater than the thinking at the (individual level) , and the presence of outcome showing the (organizational level) by (health sector) because the private sector is seeking to benefit from the expertise and strengthened through strategic dialogues, and the (Organizational level) by (banking sector) to the fact that an integrated collective work here, and the (individual level) by (education sector) to the fact that most individuals rely on personal knowledge and experience.
