Abstract

As the importance of promotion may be theoretically explained by organizational psychology and principal-agent theory, ChapterⅢ is composed of the possibility and limitation of these two theoretical approach and their relevance for designing organizational incentives. Based on the theoretical discussions, ChapterⅣ focuses on the practical issues of reforming Korean personnel system to make promotion an incentive system It also makes suggestions about how promotion and personnel systems can be restructured to enhance bureaucratic performance.
