Arvin A. Andacao



Several indicators of organizational efficiency that beset the Philippine System of Higher Education have been identified. In pursuit of total quality management in Philippine Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), the study determined the best fit model of organizational efficiency of State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) in Region XI, Philippines. The study employed descriptive correlational design and structural equation model with 369 faculty members who participated as respondents. Sets of survey questionnaires were also used as instruments in obtaining information from the respondents. The findings revealed that the overall level of visionary leadership of school administrators was high; team building competence was high; conflict resolution skills was barely high; and organizational efficiency of SUCs was high. Meanwhile, the visionary leadership, team building competence, and conflict resolution skills of school administrators were significantly correlated (p<0.01) with organizational efficiency. The commitment, accountability, shared goals, valuing, and mapping were found out to be the best predictors to achieve organizational efficiency. Finally, the most model parsimony for organizational efficiency of SUCs in Region XI, Philippines was the level of team building competence of school administrators, which passed all the conventions of a good model fit.
