    geeweon chang , Jin, Jongsoon | 2006, 17(3) | pp.33~54 | number of Cited : 43
    This study analyzes how organizational culture affects employees’ reform tendency by employing Kimberly and Quinn’s Competing Values Model (1984). The organizational culture is categorized by type of group, hierarchical, development, and rational cultures. The effect of the ten central government agencies’ organizational cultures on public employees’ reform tendency is analyzed. The study shows that every type of the organizational culture positively affects public employees’ reform tendency. Development culture which emphasizes creativity, group culture which emphasizes participation, rational culture which focuses on performance, and hierarchical culture which emphasizes balanced organizational management all have a positive effect on public employees’ reform tendency. In addition, public employees have a higher reform tendency when their government agency has a strong and balanced organizational culture. The result of this analysis shows the pooled effect of the four types of organizational culture on the public employees’ reform tendency. Like the argument of the Competing Values Model, all the organizations have mutually exclusive values, and achieve higher performance when they have strong and balanced organizational cultures. Therefore, instead of supporting one individual type of organizational culture, every organizational culture should be developed in order to lessen public employee backlash against organizational reform.

    Jhungsoo Park , 김인 | 2006, 17(3) | pp.181~202 | number of Cited : 2
    This study explains that Korea suffered high level of state capture, which contributed to the economy’s rapid decline during the Asian financial crisis. State institutions had opaque relations with big business groups that prevent more efficient allocation of resources and weakened mechanisms for the accountability to the people. Korea’s governance conditions were good relatively, but recently released CPI and BPI scores explain the sustained seriousness of business practice in bribery paying and persistent collusion between political elites and business sector. Korea is working harder than ever before to prevent corruption. Not only are important systems, such as anti-corruption policy institutions network in place, but also preparations are under way to apply the most comprehensive policy measures including IT infrastructure, strengthened laws and codes, and active civil society participation. It is very encouraging that systems and foundations have been established to this extent in such a short period of time, and people expect to see many positive effects.
