If people motivation is at some acceptance level this does not mean that the commitment from people is automatically increased.
The commitment may be considered as a habit of the people and the style of the personality.
Some people are more committed than others and low commitment may be a waste for the organization.
Motivation is a major factor for enhancing work, speed, communication, and participation in activities, but the BVOPPM office may need to train people or organize their activities so the desired level of commitment may be achieved with time.
The BVOPPM office participates with other organizational offices to define clear measurable objectives and understandable outcomes of the commitment or its low levels.
