This edited collection examines the changing contours of Korean management and business, presenting recent scholarly research into this important Asian economic player. As one of the original ‘Little Dragon’ or ‘Tiger’ economies, South Korea has grown and prospered since the early years of the 1960s, and is now home to several major word-class multinational companies, such as Hyundai and LG, Samsung. In turn, it has developed a distinctive style of management, which derives from a shared Asian heritage but is nonetheless unique to South Korea. The collection covers a variety of themes, topics and issues from a range of perspectives and fields in management and business studies.
This book was originally published as a special issue of Asia Pacific Business Review.
