This chapter looks at the salaried automobile engineer in South Korea's late industrialization with respect to two extreme typologies – the small‐ and medium‐sized firm, and the huge diversified business group. These two groups are addressed in the first two main sections of the chapter, and includes some general discussion of across‐country situations in various manufacturing industries as well as specific discussion of the Korean automobile industry. Three further sections discuss the following: Learning at the Hyundai Motor Company, Japan's influence on Korea's small‐ and medium‐sized firms, and the subcontracting network of the Hyundai Motor Company.
