In the present study, by means of literature review, the effective structural indicators on organizational entrepreneurship were identified. Data collection was conducted using Delphi and paired comparisons questionnaires, and data analysis was done using Fuzzy Delphi method and FAHP. Results of the experts' opinions analysis indicated that among the 16 extracted indicators from research literature, only seven indicators are recognized as influential factors on the entrepreneurship process.
