Organizational Culture as a Determinant of Non-Governmental Organization Performance: Primer Evidence from Nigeria

Joe Duke II, Gloria Henry Edet


This paper outlines a study carried out to establish an association between organizational culture and the performance of non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Data were obtained from 99 NGOs, randomly selected from the 132 currently operating in Nigeria. The Ordinary Least Square (OLS) method of linear regression and descriptive statistical analysis were used in examining the relationship. The results, overall, revealed a positive association. This led to the conclusion that organizational culture is a potent determinant of performance. This paper therefore suggests that NGOs could leverage on culture as a key organizational resource towards achieving high levels of effectiveness.
