Organisational Commitment has only loose links with overall job performance. However highly committed people are more likely than less committed people to help others in the organisation (Arnold & Randall et al, 2010).
Using the Organisational Behaviour theories and concepts you have studied, critically analyse and discuss the meaning of organisational commitment and its effects on job performance. Then consider the implications of your findings from the perspectives of both employees and their employing organisations.
This assignment requires knowledge and understanding of the OB theory and concepts. In addressing this question you need to critically examine the ideas presented within the theories, and consider how they help you to make sense of the issue. The aim of this assignment is not to merely summarise theories as discussed within the text book, but to critically examine them in terms of their relevance and assistance.
Your discussion should include appropriate academic references, such as academic journal articles, which you should make a wide use of, to develop and support your arguments.

By scanning just the subheadings, the reader should be able to gain an understanding of the key issues in you argument.

The Discussion section should integrate your research and ideas into key arguments.
The Conclusion should comment on the significance of your argument/s in relation to the key issue/s and consider the implication/s for practice.
Use an academic style of writing and correct APA6 referencing. Include a Reference section at the end (not included in the word count).
