Commitment is said to be one of the most widely researched topic in the area of Organizational Behavior. Various desirable consequences come to pass as results of commitment. Commitment has also been linked to performance but this has been found to be one of the most under-researched variables linked to it. Another variable that has not been researched vis -a-vis commitment is competence. This article addresses these gaps and has tried to relate both performance and competence to commitment. Specifically, this article has focused on continuance commitment. This article has been divided into various sections. The first section is a literature review on commitment. The second section discusses competency, what it means, and a resource based view of competencies has been discussed. Finally a link between competency and commitment and between commitment and performance has been established. Two propositions have been put forward to this end. The article concludes with a brief discussion on implications for research and practice.
