  • ABSTRACT: The research is about the assessment of the Managerial Skills and Deci-sion-Making Ability of the Local Chief Executives of the Third District of Nueva Ecija, Philippines. The study argued that Managerial Skills and “De-cision-making Ability” must go together to effect change in the local gov-ernance and as an important domain of leadership. The leadership of the Local Chief Executives of the Third District of Nueva Ecija could be measured in terms of managerial skills and decision-making ability. This must go together to effect change in local governance. The study used the Descriptive Survey Method. This method involves the collection of data in order to test hypotheses or answer questions. With devolved powers from the national government, the local government officers specifically local chief executives such as mayor and barangay chairmen, together with the public administrators of their respective units, are expected to manage their work, people, and environment effectively, efficiently lead them towards the achievement of their goals and be able to relate these with local governance buzzwords like transparency, accountability, participation, equity, efficiency, effectiveness, and development. Data were collected by means of a survey questionnaire. The study confirmed that managerial skills and decision making ability are essential qualifications in good governance. The offshoot of the two domains is the essence of effective leadership which stems from the fact that leaders have the capacity to translate visions into actions. Central to this is their ability to make sound decisions and manage with efficiency the work of a civil servant.
