Abstract

This paper analyses various conceptualisations of organisational commitment and posits an inclusive model of commitment derived in part from past research endeavours. Our proposed framework captures six subfactors of commitment framed within five themes (emotion, finance, esteem, culture and focus). The relationship of commitment to strategy and the role of strategy in determining antecedents of commitment are then examined. Additionally, commitment as an intervening variable affected by and affecting various antecedents and consequences respectively are discussed. Finally, the framework is used to identify further areas of research into this important organisational concept.
