Identifying the factors contributing to the enhancement of the combat capability of the border troops to address security threats is an essential requirement for border guards' missions. In this research, we have identified the effective management factors on the promotion of combat capability of the border troops of West Azerbaijan province. The purpose of the research is to identify the management factors (individual, inter-organizational and intra-organizational) that affect the promotion of combat capability of border guard personnel in West Azerbaijan province. In terms of its objectives this study is of an applied research type and in terms of its methodology it is considered as a descriptive-analytical type. A researcher-made questionnaire was used to collect data. The statistical population includes 70 border guards of West Azerbaijan province and their authorities. The sample size includes all members. SPSS software was employed to analyze the data. To determine the reliability of the questionnaire, Cronbach's alpha test was used, which was 0.78. The results of the present research show that in promoting the combat capability of border guard personnel, the factors related to the intra-organizational component are the most effective parameters, and the individual and inter-organizational components are in the next positions. In other words, the more intra-organizational, individual and inter-organizational components are increased, the management is progressing toward the promotion of combat capability, and on the basis of which the combat capability of the border guard personnel of the West Azerbaijan province is increased. In this regard, commanders must enhance their knowledge and expertise and use modern border control equipment, develop their interaction and communication with employees, and create a climate of friendship for their subordinates.
