Budget Implementation Strategies and Organisational Effectiveness in Colleges of Education in Nigeria
This study examined the relationship between budget implementation strategies and organisational effectiveness in colleges of education in Nigeria. Simple random sampling was used to select 24 colleges of education while stratified random sampling was used to select 432 staff as participants in the study. A questionnaire tagged “Budget Implementation Strategies Questionnaire” (BISQ) and one pro-forma titled “Student Academic Achievement Schedules” (SAAS) were used to collect data. The instruments were validated by experts. The reliability coefficient for BISQ was 0.76. Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation (PPMC) was used to test the hypotheses while stepwise multiple regression was used to determine the level of contribution of each independent variable to the dependent variable. The findings were that there was a significant relationship between budget implementation strategies and organisational effectiveness in the colleges. It was concluded that it is necessary to provide technical assistance to units and departments concerned with preparing workable fiscal budgets.
