    When evaluating the success of an organization, the value of employees’ organizational commitment and the process of knowledge sharing among staff must be considered. As illustrated in this volume, these two concepts are key conditions for organizational success in the contemporary world.

    This book explores the concept of organizational commitment, what it is, and how to use and understand the value in knowledge management and sharing for both employees and organizations as a whole. A profound analysis of the global literature exposes organizational commitment and knowledge sharing as key determinants of the effectiveness of the organization management process, including human capital management. While much space in the literature on the subject is devoted to the exploration of the above-mentioned concepts, treated as categories subject to separate analysis, the diagnosis and analysis of the relationship between them should be treated as a poorly recognized process. This book fills a research gap, providing a theoretical foundation and important information on organizational commitment and knowledge sharing, highlighting the relationship between both research categories.

    It will be of interest to researchers, academics, practitioners, and students in the fields of human resource management, leadership, and organizational studies.
