    La principal aportación del presente trabajo de investigación no es otra que la contrastación empírica de que la existencia de mayores niveles de compromiso organizacional en las empresas familiar se debe al liderazgo transformacional y puede ser explicada mediante el enfoque cognitivo del aprendizaje organizacional. Asimismo, el trabajo arroja evidencia de la diferencialidad del compromiso en la empresa familiar respecto de la no familiar a partir de las tres dimensiones del compromiso organizacional descritos en la literatura: afectivo, de continuidad o calculativo y normativo, asociándolos con los niveles de identificación, implicación y lealtad, respectivamente. De modo que ha sido contrastada, utilizando metodología cuantitativa, la existencia de mayores niveles de identificación, implicación y lealtad en las empresas familiares. / The main contribution of this paper is just to demonstrate that the existence of higher level of organizational commitment in family firms is due to transformational leadership and can be explained adopting an approach of cognitive organizational learning This paper also demonstrates the singularity of organizational commitment in family firms through the three dimensions of organizational commitment described in the literature: affective, continuance and, normative. Linking each of these three dimensions with the levels of identification, involvement and loyalty respectively, the existence of higher levels of identification, involvement and loyalty in family enterprises is tested.
