Organizational climate, culture and innovations are dimensions crucial in management performance, effectiveness and survival of HEIs. This descriptive-correlational and comparative study aimed to develop a structural equation model that predicts the management performance of HEIs using the data gathered through a validated questionnaire from top officials and senior faculty of public and private colleges in Oriental Mindoro, Philippines. Key informant interviews substantiate the results of the survey. ANOVA results show that only indicators of organizational climate are significantly different specifically teamwork and recognition. Multiple linear regression reveals that only organizational climate and organizational culture were significantly related to management performance. Path analysis indicates that organizational climate has higher effect to organizational culture than it does in the management performance but organizational culture has higher impact to management performance of HEIs than the organizational climate to management performance. The fitted regression model confirms that management performance is best predicted by the organizational culture’s shared rights, shared sayings, shared doings and a combination of organizational climate and innovation. Said predictors can greatly affect the management performance in terms of planning, directing, staffing, controlling and organizing. This study recommends for administrators to give more attention to assessing the personnel fairly, give recognition to their exemplary performance to boost their morale, emphasize teamwork, planning and attain cordial organizational climate and better organizational culture to ensure more success in the management of Higher Educational Institutions.
