Abstract (2. Language): 
The New Public Management (NPM) has introduced new means of management in the public sector since J 980s. While stages of NPM practices have been various in both developed and developing countries, public administration scholars and practitioners alike began to discuss the driving forces of successful new management applications. The success of new management techniques demands an appropriate internal work culture whose norms, beliefs, and values are supportive of the attitudes and behaviors of managers and subordinates. Developing countries have faced more challenges in successful introduction of NPM approaches than developed countries, since new management ideas have taken roots mainly in developed countries. In this paper, if is intended to discuss how current aspects of Turkish national and organizational culture may affect the successful implementation of new public management principies in the public organizations by reviewing relevant literature.
Abstract (Original Language): 
Yeni Kamu yönelimi (YKY) yaklaşımı, 1980'lerden bu yana kamu sektöründe yönelimde yeni teknikler ortaya koymuştur. Gelişmiş ve gelişmekte olan ülkelerin YKY uygulama evreleri değişiklik gösterirken, kamu yönetimi bilimadamlan ve uygulayıcıları başardı yeni yönetim uygulamalarını harekete geçiren faktörleri tartışmaya başlamıştır. Normları, inanç ve değerleri ile yönetici ve çalışanlarının davranış ve tutumlarını destekleyen uygun bir çalışma kültürü, yeni yönetim tekniklerinin başarısı için bir gerekliliktir. Yeni yönetim akımları büyük ölçüde gelişmiş ülkelerde ortaya çıkmış olduklarından, gelişmekte olan ülkeler YKY tekniklerini başarılı bir şekilde (kamu sektörlerine) tanıştırmakta gelişmiş ülkelere göre daha fazla zorluklarla karşı karşıya kalmışlardır. Bu çalışma, yeni kamu yönetimi prensiplerinin başarılı bir şekilde kamu organizasyonlarında uygulanabilmesinde günümüz Türk ulusal kültürü ve organizasyon kültürünün etkilerini incelemektedir.
