IntroductionIn current days organizationinnovation and transformational leadership is a hot topic and interest of themost researchers, because both are helpful in getting competitive advantage (Bass 1990, Bassand Avolio 1993). So that’s why organization is morefocus in innovations, for facing economical and environment uncertainty, andother globalization is totally change the working style of the organization (Eisenbeiß and Boerner 2010); (Michaelis, Stegmaier et al. 2010); Gumusluog?lu and Ilsev, 2009.Globalization enhances the competition, so those organizations are exist andsurvive those follow the innovation Smith et al, 2004, (Kellermanns, Eddleston et al. 2008).Innovation in sense of process,idea, method, new product, technology, strategy all things are part of theorganization innovation (Eisenbeiß and Boerner 2010, Michaelis, Stegmaier et al.
2010). Literature suggests transformationleadership style is a key predictor of the organization innovation. Accordingto researcher Transformational leadership style is best fit to face theuncertainty of the environment. It’s empirically tested in Turkishpharmaceutical industry, Taiwan information technology industrytransformational leadership is positive and enhances organization innovation (Michaelset al 2010) Inthis study employee commitment playing as a mediate play role in betweentransformational leadership and organization innovation (Jimenez-Jimenez, Sanz Valle et al. 2008). Literature clearly shows employeecommitment is more important aspect of all the organizations (Garcia-Morales, Matias-Reche et al.
2008). According to literature employeecommitment are divided in three parts first is trust building, fairness inworking, and concern employees (Bragg 2002). If organization wants to buildemployee commitment (Coetzee 2005) defined, create environment whereemployee feel in fairness in culture, motivate with trust, and caring.
Andliterature suggests transformational leadership is fulfilling all the criteria.Transformation leadership positive with employee commitment (Boon 2006). Sothe issue is this in too much curiosity in environment it’s difficult to manageand control the organization environment Damanpour 1991, Jimenez & Valle(2008). When environment unstable in organization due to getting less employeecommitment, and when less employee commitment due to less organizationinnovation McAdam and Keogh, 2004.
So in this research try to fill the blackbox how transformational leadership covers all the situation and the sort out all the problems, related toenvironment instability, and globalization, and in help of mentoring, couching,and counseling to the employees enhance employee commitment, due toorganization getting innovation (Gumusluog?lu and Ilsev 2000). In this era of globalization the corporateworld is facing tough market competition which also includes Pakistan. In orderto stay in the market, organization have to change their approach fromtraditional market approach towards innovation and creativity, they must haveadaptive capability for sudden change in the market to adjust according to newsituation.(Ngo and Loi2008). This study will help them that howimportant it is for them to have resilient and creative manpower and to changetheir organization trends toward requirement of innovation (Chan and Loui2004).Thisstudy will also help them to understand the importance of transformationleadership, which will help them in continuous or dynamic environment.
