Abstract:With regard to the theoretical work about organizational strategy and organizational climate the effect of the strategy-climate fit on strategic work behaviours is studied at two German organizations. A mediating affect of affective commitment was taken into account. Related to the theoretical work of Bowen and Ostroff (2004) this study wants to test a moderating influence of the HR climate strength. Results suggest that no significant difference can be found regarding the influence of the strategy-climate fit. Therefore a stronger fit does not lead to better work behaviours. Looking at specific fits with specific work behaviours, no significant effect can be found either. The mediating effect of affective commitment can not be confirmed although correlational analyses give statistical significant correlations between affective commitment and the strategic work behaviours at one organization. Differences regarding affective commitment can not be explained by the strategy-climate fit. However an indication can be found that the HR climate strength does play an important role regarding affective commitment and affective commitment to the supervisor. Research limitations and recommendations for further research are discussed
