ABSTRACT

This paper examines the comparative effects of clan and innovation subculture on job satisfaction, organizational commitment and job involvement respectively in central ministries of Korea. Based on the Organizational Diagnosis Survey 2005 with about 1,200 respondents from three ministries, which are the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Industry and Resources, and the Ministry of Information and Telecommunication, it analyses those effects by Standard Mixture Design due to the ipsative structure of the data. The result shows that while innovation culture is significantly related to job involvement, clan culture is significantly related to job satisfaction and organizational commitment. More importantly, the latter effect is proven significant at the working level subculture rather than at the managerial level subculture while the first effect is proven significant in both subcultures. Also, the latter effect is proven significant in line departments rather than in staff departments while the first effect is proven significant in both subcultures but the size of the effect is larger in line rather than staff departments. These results imply that government innovation should be accompanied by the corresponding cultural changes to the different effects of clan and innovation subcultures on public servants' job behaviors or attitudes.
