    The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of developmental and rational culture on the employees’ entrepreneurial behaviors and the mediating role of the perceived environmental uncertainty on this effect. The relationship between the aforementioned variables is analyzed by using a set of statistical techniques, i.e., factor analysis, regression analysis, and sobel tests. The data used in the analysis is obtained through questionnaires filled out by 651 employees of the private firms in the defense sector in Ankara. The results of the analysis indicate that developmental culture and rational culture affect enterpreneurship behaviour positively and environmental uncertainity has a mediating role in that effect. Thus, a compatible structural equation model that optimizes the relationship among the variables is recommended.
