    The concept of organizational commitment has been studied extensively during the past decades and it is still one of the most challenging and studied concepts in organizational research.

    This paper represents the basics of an ontology model for the development of organizational commitment. The proposed model is divided into three main sections that cover the process from the time before joining the organization to actual commitment and to its presumed outcomes.

    Our objective is to create an instrument for management and leadership purposes that could be used to assess the degree of collective commitment and its types in a given organizational context. With this information, management can better lead the change and direct its human resource management practices in a direction beneficial to the organization. Highly committed employees have been seen to have a strong desire to belong to their organization and work towards its goals.
