Abstract 
 
This research study is an assessment and evaluation of the  impact of a managerial techniques on the productivity capacity of Nigerian Breweries Aba from 2004-2008.  In order to carry out the assessment, specific research questions and objectives were defined to stimulate the conclusion of the work. The systems theory formed the theoretical framework to explain the influence of the external environment on the organization. The methodology applied to achieve the objectives of the study consists of Annual reports compilation of the company from 2000-2008 and field survey using structured questionnaire which were administered to a sample population of seventy staff of Nigerian Breweries  Aba. Based on the Annual reports of the company the productivity of the company was higher before the introduction of a new management  technique at the Aba branch of the company. The productivity of the company was lower when the new management technique was introduced. The productivity of the company was high after the new management strategy was introduced at the Aba branch of Nigerian breweries Plc. From the findings of the research it is recommended that management should properly communicate with workers and the customer (outside environment) before they adopt a particular managerial strategy in production, management should also assess critically the impact of any technique they adopt on the worker before they commence the implementation of such technique in production.
