Jesse W. Campbell. (2018) Felt responsibility for change in public organizations: general and sector-specific paths Public Management Review. 20(2), 232-253

Employees may be a source of performance-enhancing innovation or an obstacle to its implementation. This article develops a model of felt responsibility for change that integrates general and public sector-specific components. Structural equation modelling using survey data collected from Korean government employees suggests that both transformational leadership and performance-based incentives influence change attitudes by strengthening an organization’s climate for innovation. The analysis also suggests that transformational leadership wields influence through reinforcing public service motivation. It is argued that this path is uniquely relevant to the implementation of reform in the public sector.
