PUENTE-PALACIOS, Katia Elizabeth  e  VIEIRA, Rafaella de Andrade. Development of a measure of team commitment. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2010, vol.10, n.1, pp. 81-92. ISSN 1984-6657.

The purpose of this study was to adapt and psychometrically validate a scale for measuring affective commitment to the work team, regarded as a gauge of effectiveness. This is understood as a construct, affective in nature, characterized by the desire to remain as part of the team, share its values, and worry about its future. The data for the adapted instrument were gathered on a 7-point Likert scale. The adapted scale, consisting of 9 items, was completed by 244 respondents. Initial statistical analysis supported the factorability of the correlation matrix. Factor analysis indicated the scale was unidimensional and explained 61,3% of the total variance of the phenomenon. The internal consistency of the questionnaire proved quite satisfactory (α = 0.92; r item-total = 0.72). The results of this study indicate that the adapted instrument is a useful tool for measuring the intensity of this affective bond of members with their work teams, thus, contributing to an understanding of the effectiveness of work teams.
