Organizaciones públicas frente a cambios en su entorno: implicaciones de las capacidades de respuesta y de adaptación

Public organizations facing changes in their environment: implications of response and adaptation capabilities

Contenido principal del artículo


Al explorar la relación entre organizaciones públicas y entorno, la literatura en administración pública favorece la noción de que el entorno de dichas organizaciones es estático y, por lo tanto, la gestión efectiva se fundamenta en rutinas e instituciones que dotan de capacidad de respuesta ante eventos. En este artículo se argumenta que la capacidad de respuesta puede ser inefectiva ante cambios del entorno. El estudio de la relación entre organizaciones públicas y su entorno puede enriquecerse al considerar entornos dinámicos, especialmente para distinguir entre capacidades de respuesta y de adaptación.
