Construction industries, especially those in developing countries, face the problems of low productivity. It comes about partly due to organizational ineffectiveness. The major attributes of organizational effectiveness are identified from literature. Means to achieving greater organization effectiveness and higher productivity are identified under the major headings of cohesion and morale of workers, adaptability, information communication, and planning. Using a structured questionnaire survey on building craftsmen in Uganda, results suggest that most workers are not satisfied with the financial reward, level of status is not able to achieve personal goals. Workers are not satisfied with the level of training. The variables are weak points in organizational effectiveness. In addition, workers are not satisfied with the level of participation in decision-making. There is a need to dwell on these grey areas in order to improve the organizational effectiveness of building firms, especially in developing countries.
