Using a descriptive case study and quantitative research techniques, this study examined the influence of employee motivation and quality assurance on organizational performance on palm oil project in Kalangala district, Uganda. Data were collected from 291 respondents, comprising of employees and palm oil famers using a self-administered questionnaire. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, factor analysis, and correlation and regression analysis methods.  Results indicate that there is a positive relationship between employee motivation and Quality Assurance (r = .293*, p<.05). This indicates that if employees were motivated, there will be improved quality assurance. Regression results reveal that Employee Motivation and Quality Assurance can predict 72.5% of organizational performance (Adjusted R Square = .725, Sig. =.000). For improved organizational performance, managers should work towards improving both employee motivation and quality assurance since these have been found to positively influence organizational performance.
