Main Article Content



In this study, the researchers investigated the causal influence from strategic management practice to employee’s performance using three competing techniques, MLE, GLS and ADFE, for a sample of Nigerian aviation industry. The three techniques provided a unanimous evidence that strategic planning and strategic management/evaluation maintained positive relationship with employee’s contribution to time management, while, we found that employee’s performance is not significantly sensitive to strategic formulation. Thus, the study recommended that employees should reduce their productive hours, required to formulate policies, rather they should allocate much hours in the process that leads to the achievement of the overall goal of the organization.
