Abstract: This study aims to investigate what factors of organizational culture are associated with successful institutionalization of software product line and to explore if organizational commitment has a mediation effect on the relationship between these factors of organizational culture and software product line performance. To do this, this study collected data from 352 employees of a Korean company by survey method. Also, a structural equation modeling has been taken. As a result, as a result of the three organizational cultural types first proposed to take into account the features of the software engineer, result-oriented culture, open system culture, and employee-centered culture increase their commitment to the organization. Second, software engineers’ emotional commitment to organizations improves SPL performance. Finally, software engineers’ emotional, organizational commitments mediate the relationship between employee-centric culture and SPL performance. This study is the first one to show the organizational culture types associated with psychological contracts and to understand how these organizational cultural types affect software product line performance through organizational commitment. The results of this study provide conceptual insight to administrators who want to find organizational culture types without sacrificing software product line performance.
