During the 1990s the Korean economy became widely regarded as a possible "role model" to be followed by other newly industrializing economies, but the "Asian Crisis" of 1997 destroyed this image. Past practices, challenges and responses are explored in this collection by an international group of authors, many of them Korean. The contributors discuss concepts across a range of international discourse, including entrepreneurial behaviour, corporate culture, change, people management and inward investment. The volume contains a wide variety of material, with a broad spread of studies and research. This book aims to provide a more detailed and sophisticated picture of Korean management and business, its organization, practices and changes, than is too often presented.
