Ikemefuna Madu


Nigerian production system are still at a very low level stage since many of its operators are still using the traditionalbased approaches rather than adopting modern technologies (Apulu, 2012). These study broad objective determine
the influence of production techniques and technological orientation on the performance of manufacturing industries in Nigeria. The study employed a descriptive survey design of ten (10) manufacturing industries which cut across
Kaduna, Kano and Jigawa State of Nigeria. Regression analysis was used in determining the relationship between production techniques and organizational performance. The result shows that, correlation coefficient ® is 0.741, implying that there is a strong positive relationship between performance (Y) and production technique (X) on first hypothesis while the second hypothesis of Regression result on technological orientation and the performance of
manufacturing industries in Nigeria shows that computed correlation coefficient ® is 0.888, this implying that there is also a strong positive relationship between Performance (Y) and technological orientation (X). The findings and
recommendations called upon organizational owners and managers to go for deep environmental scanning and be creative and innovative to transit into technological trend of meeting up with today’s global challenges.
