The study aims at acknowledging the effect of human resources maintenance on the types of organizational agility (sensing agility, decision-making agility, and acting agility) in the private universities / Kurdistan Region of Iraq. The study has used the analytical descriptive methodology, through using questionnaire to collect information from the members of the universities council in (11) private universities / Kurdistan Region of Iraq. The sample of the study includes (91) members of the university councils. The statistical program (SPSS.
