Abstract

As organizations are operating in a turbulent environment, it is essential for them to change the existing practices and policies. Currently, the aviation sector in Sri Lanka needs to acclimatize to survive in their environment. Thus, this study aims to identify the impact of self-awareness and self-management on organizational commitment to change. Moreover, the study aims to examine the boundary conditions of the proposed relationship by examining the moderating effect of environmental dynamism, which received less attention in the extant literature. Researchers adopted post-positivism research philosophy, and the approach is deductive. Data were collected using a self-administrated questionnaire from 330 front-line employees in the aviation industry in Sri Lanka. PLS-SEM model was adopted to analyze the data, and the violating assumptions were tested. The results showed that self-awareness and self-management are positive and significant influences on organizational commitment to change, and environmental dynamism moderate these relationships. The key implication of this study is managing any critical times by inspiring their level of self-awareness and management to change the mindset of staff to cope with the organization change to enhance the commitment. The findings of the study are beneficial for potential aviation-related academies and partitioners.
