IPSY 6579/IPSY 8579: Job Attitudes, Measure, and Change
Commitment is an attitude that correlates strongly with job satisfaction. In addition, commitment, like satisfaction, relates to turnover and other employee outcomes. Because there are patterns of commitment, organizations can use these data to take steps to increase employee commitment, thereby increasing positive employee behaviors and decreasing negative employee behaviors.
In this Discussion, you will analyze the level of employee commitment at Walden Sports using the Meyer-Allen three-component measure (affective, normative, and continuance) and analyze the consequences that can occur.
To prepare for this Discussion:
View the video: “Organizational Commitment”. Select two Walden Sports employees and consider how they differ in their commitment to the organization. Then consider positive and negative consequences of each employee’s organizational commitment.
Read the article “Job Satisfaction, Organizational Commitment and Job Involvement: The Mediating Role of Job Involvement.” Think about the antecedents and consequences of commitment, both positive and negative.
Read the article “Examination of the Relationships Between Servant Leadership, Organizational Commitment, and Voice and Antisocial Behaviors.” Think about aspects of leadership that can affect commitment.
Read the article “The Mediating Role of Job Involvement Between Job Satisfaction and Organizational Commitment in a Small and Medium Sized Business Enterprise.” Reflect on the mediators and predictors of commitment.
Read the article “Affective Commitment as a Core Essence of Organizational Commitment.” Consider how affective commitment, or the emotional attachment to the organization, can influence commitment to an organization.
Read the article “Organizational Citizenship Behavior: Recent Trends and Developments.” Consider some of the positive and negative consequences of commitment and some of the conditions that mediate them.
Read the article “Organizational Citizenship Behaviors – A New Look at an Old Phenomenon at different levels.” Think about the mediators and predictors of commitment and how they can change or be influenced by age or job type.
Watch the video Organizational Commitment. Consider the varied levels and aspects of commitment expressed by the Walden Sports employees.
By Day 3

Your task this week is to prepare a draft of your Signature Assignment: Scholarly Literature Review.
Start with the annotated outline you created in Week 8. Ensure you have incorporated any faculty feedback and that your topics (and subtopics) are in a logical order.
Use your outline to expand into a paper format by discussing the relationships between your scholarly sources.
Be sure to address the following:
Determine the commonalities among the articles for each (sub)topic identified in your outline. For example, did authors use similar frameworks, materials, or participants? Are any studies an extension of another?
Determine the differences that exist among the articles for each (sub)topic that you identified in your outline. If there are contradictory findings, you may (or may not) be able to identify methodological differences that could account for the contradiction (e.g., differences in measurements or participant demographics).
Select general conclusions you can report about a subtopic, given the relationships you inferred from the group of articles within each subtopic.
Consider the relationships between scholarly sources within each subtopic and drawn conclusions within each subtopic. If you take a step back and look at the entire group of subtopics and your work thus far, what overall general conclusions can you draw?
Some questions to consider include: 1) What are some general observations on the topic? 2) Are there overall themes or patterns in the literature? 3) Do the patterns or themes suggest future areas of inquiry? In this process, did you discover that you need to return to the literature and search for additional resources? Please explain.
Ensure that you identify and consider the theoretical frameworks presented in the literature you are reviewing (see Bloomberg
