This study examines correlations among individual components of Wang’s organizational commitment model and the moderating effect of each component on knowledge sharing practices. Wang’s model has a high level of validity for studies in the Chinese context. Knowledge sharing is a significant activity in the ICT industry since employees need to rapidly share changes in technologies. A
quantitative methodology was used based on 310 responses from Hong Kong ICT professionals. Results show that value commitment is the highest among other commitment components. Correlations among each component are significant but not all are correlated. Normative and affective commitments are significant but negatively moderate knowledge sharing on other components. This
research contributes to literature on organizational commitment by exploring various commitment components.
