Abstract The study examined the predictive value of blocks of time, open-door policy and closed-door policy on senior-member administrators time-management practices in the Technical Universities in Ghana. The main objective was to assess whether open-door policy, closed-door policy and blocks of time have impact on time-management practices of senior-member administrators. Two hypotheses were generated based on the objectives to guide the study. Predictive design was used for the study. Four hundred and forty-five senior-member administrators were selected through purposive sampling. Questionnaire was used to elicit responses from participants. The overall alpha coefficient of the items measured (α =.91) was obtained. Pearson correlation and hierarchical regression were the statistical tools used to analyse the data gathered. The findings indicated among others that there existed statistically significant and relationship between open-door policy, close-door policy, blocks of time and time-management practices. Findings equally showed that open-door policy made the strongest unique contribution to the prediction of time-management practices. The findings were discussed in relation to the literature. It was recommended among others that senior member administrators should be conscious of reinforcing the use of open-door policy, closed-door and blocks of time at the detriment of other variables. Specific time that can most conveniently help senior-member administrators to receive visitors and operate successfully should be pasted in front of the office door to control influx of visitors and avoid missing deadlines.
