A renewed instrument for organizational commitment

A renewed instrument for organizational commitment

The prevailing model in organizational commitment research is Allen and Meyer's (1990) 3-component model of organizational commitment. They developed three scales to measure commitment, the affective commitment scale (ACS), the continuance commitment scale (CCS) and the normative commitment scale (NCS). The correlation between the ACS and NCS has consistently been found to be larger than theoretically expected, both with the original scales and the revised scales (Meyer, Allen & Smith, 1993). In the current study, a Dutch version of the revised scales is developed, where the correlation between the ACS and NCS is smaller than originally. This was attained by omitting the word 'feeling' from the NCS items. The newly-developed scales appeared to be both reliable and valid. Possibilities for future research are discussed.
