One of the major agendas set by and for Participatory Government is the Government Innovation. The connotation of Government Innovation is very variable according to authors and actors, but one thing clear is that its ultimate goal is to promote State's compatibility and Citizens' life quality.
The Participatory Government shares also this universal goal and public value. As it is revealed by the five goals of Government Innovation (efficiency, service first, transparency, decentralization, participation), the Participatory Government employs multiples standards of government reinvention strategies
: New Public Management and Policy network. This practical choice permit to find or construct a meaningful path maybe unique to Korean government practices.
But, it may not be useless to note here that the Participatory Government is aiming at a 'better government' denying a 'small government' that prevailed both in past Korean governments and Anglo-saxon or American governments (UK, New Zealand, USA, etc). On the contrary, it seeks vigorously to play an active role
of 'coordinator' between civil society (citizens) and enterprises (market).
