This study investigated the influence of managerial capacity on perceived workers` productivity in industrial organizations in Nigeria. This study adopted the descriptive survey research design. A total of 325 respondents were selected for the study using stratified sampling technique. Two sets of questionnaire were used for data collection. Regression Analysis, Pearson Product Moment Correlation and t test statistics were used to test the hypothesized research questions generated for the study. Findings of the study revealed that managerial capacity predicts workers` productivity in industrial organizations in Nigeria. Besides, there is a significant relationship between managerial capacity and perceived workers` productivity. Also, there is a significant difference between workers` productivity in public and private organizations on the basis of managerial capacity. Based on the findings of the study, it was recommended that the managers and workers should be exposed to capacity building programmes on continuous basis in order to update their skills and knowledge for improved job performance and productivity. More so, the monitoring unit of the organizations should be empowered towards adequate utilization of the scarce resources through effective supervision of the workers for efficiency and effectiveness on their jobs.

Keywords: Managerial Capacity. Workers, Productivity, Industrial Organization.
