ABSTRACT

This study analyzed the organizational culture of the administrative organization from the perspective of humanism focusing on Ouchi’s Z theory, setting the hierarchical normatism and employment stability as an independent variable and analyzing its relationship with organizational competence as a dependent variable. Additionally, the differences between the community centers which are the local government agencies in the field, and fire stations were analyzed. To improve the organizational competence of the local government agencies, the employment stability should be enhanced placing importance on the humanistic management style proposed in Ouchi’s Z theory, and the strict hierarchical normaltism of the administrative organization should be reduced. In the future, the frontier administrative agencies should make an organizational atmosphere highlighting Korean traditional values such as human relations rather than keeping the current performance or achievement emphasizing policy. They can give individuals the sense of success, and enable the organization to achieve the goal. Besides, as we cannot object the current performance centered trend, the balance between the human centered and performance centered should be set. On the other hand, the key will be the method to introduce the humanism to the public servants’ organizational culture.
