Kurumsal Örgüt Kuramı E-Devlet Uygulamalarını Anlamak ve Açıklamak için Yararlı Olabilir mi?

Kamu yönetimi sisteminde teknoloji kullanımı ile ilgili çalışmalar veya daha yaygın adıyla e-devlet, kamu yönetimi disiplininin önemli bir çalışma konusu haline gelmiştir. Bu makalede e-devlet alanındaki gelişmeleri incelemede ve anlamada kurumsal örgüt kuramı kullanımının getirdiği olanaklar, e-devlet alan yazınından örnekler yardımıyla ve bu yaklaşımın bazı kısıtlarına dikkat çekilerek ortaya konulmuştur. Varılan sonuç, e-devlet kavramı ve uygulaması hakkında yapılan analizlerde kurumsal örgüt kuramının, alan yazınında hâkim konumdaki yeni kamu işletmeciliği değerleri-odaklı bakış açısına ek olarak, toplumsal/örgütsel meşruiyet arayışları, simgesellik ve moda olma gibi farklı hususları da analize dâhil etmesi nedeniyle yararlı olabileceği yönündedir.

Can The Institutional Theory Of Organizations Be Useful To Understand And Explain E-Government Applications?

Studies about technologies used in the public administration system, more popularly known as e-government, has become an important topic of study in the discipline of public administration. One way of analyzing the e-government phenomenon is by examining it from a rational viewpoint. An alternative way of analysis is to employ the institutional theory of organizations, which helps explain internal conformity to the rules and trends of the institutional environment. Institutional theory necessitates the incorporation of the boundedly-rational, social, and political aspects of decision- making, such as concerns of legitimacy, stability, and survival.
