This study was conducted to determine the best fit model of organizational effectiveness of higher education institutions as estimated by transformational leadership, organizational health, and total quality management of higher education institutions in Region XII, Philippines. It was conducted from October 2019 to February 2020. The study used quantitative, non-experimental research design using correlational technique and path analysis. The 250 employees among Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) were determined using the stratified sampling procedure. Mean, Pearson r, and path analysis were used as statistical tools. Moreover, adapted survey questionnaires were used. The result shows that the levels of transformational leadership, organizational health, total quality management, and organizational effectiveness of higher education institutions were high. Further, when each independent variable is correlated to organizational effectiveness, results show that transformational leadership was significantly correlated with organizational effectiveness. There was also a significant relationship between organizational health and organizational effectiveness as well as between total quality management and organizational effectiveness. Model 3 came out as the best fit model that predicts organizational effectiveness. The model showed that transformational leadership and total quality management predicts organizational effectiveness among higher education institutions.
