DPR North Korea, Organizational embeddedness, Psychological contract, Socialist management
Foreign organizations work in DPR Korea under multiple external and internal pressures, and these organizations try to respond to their working environment in their own ways. However, it is important that these foreign organizations are able to work effectively, in order for engagement with DPRK to be meaningful. In this research, utilizing the case study method, I explore the questions: How can foreign organizations effectively work in DPR Korea? What can they do to more easily achieve their outputs and outcomes? What are the dynamics of the mutual embeddedness process as foreign organizations become immersed in the context of DPRK? I find that organizations in their efforts to respond to the environment in DPRK end up compromising their effectiveness in avoidable ways. I explore what works and what doesn't for organizational management in DPRK and make some recommendations.
