The Two Sides of Korean Administrative Culture: Competitiveness Or Collectivism?

This book examines how the competitive spirit and collectivism inherent throughout Korean society have influenced the culture and behavior of administrative organizations. In particular, by analyzing various phenomena that can be seen in competition between organizations within the government, we explored the sources of government competitiveness. In that it has historically explored the roots of the Korean government's competitiveness, the research on government competitiveness has been extended to the time dimension, and its own theory has been deepened.
