    Abstract

    Software product line engineering is an interdisciplinary concept. It spans over the dimensions of business, architecture, process and organization. Some of the potential benefits of this approach include cost reduction, improvement in quality and a decrease in product development time. Employees' participation, organizational behavior and management contemplation play a vital role in successfully institutionalizing software product lines in a firm. Organizational dimension has been weighted as one of the critical dimensions in software product line theory and practice. Organizational behavior covers organizational culture, organizational commitment and organizational learning. A comprehensive empirical investigation to study the relationship of some organizational behavior on the performance of software product line practice is presented in this work. The results of this investigation provide empirical evidence and further support the theoretical foundations that in order to institutionalize software product lines within an organization, organizational behavior play an important role.
