It also crafted an organization development and transformation model to enhance the levels of Commitment, Awareness, Readiness and Engagement for long term competitiveness. The study involved respondents from the management and staff of a Thai software and professional services company. The results reveal that each level in the organization perceived and practiced organization spirituality differently in terms of Commitment, Awareness, Readiness and Engagement depending on the context of their role and function in the organization.
