Previous research has emphasized the importance of an effective interaction between innovation and efficiency for the future viability of companies (ambidexterity). Less clear, however, is what drives employees to work for a company in this sense. Based on the latest findings in the field of organizational psychology and our own practical research, we propose »commitment« as the decisive micro-determinant for this type of engagement. The commitment of an employee describes his/her psychological state that encompasses the type of attachment to the company and implies intrinsic work motivation. On the one hand, this paper explains the relation between commitment and future viability of organizations. On the other hand, it elaborates on the organizational circumstances that trigger such commitment. Furthermore, we present three process steps that help managers to promote this psychological state of employees and thus to work on the future viability of their organizations.
