The transformation process requires full participation and commitment from the entire members in the institution. Hence, it is important for organization to utilize their human resources in order to ensure effective operation Employees in the organization should be able to realize the organization transformation mission in order to achieve transformation process. As such, organizational citizenship behaviour (OCB) is crucial to be identified because the OCB would have a positive impact on the organizational performance and effectiveness. The success of OCB will be more effective when the OCB becomes the culture in an organization rather than as individual initiative. Failures to have a collective OCB may affect the organizational transformation process. The collective working environment can be enhanced through collaborative working approach.
