The Strategy for Korea's Economic Success

Among various determining factors, strong business leadership played a crucial role in Korea’s economic rise. This is perhaps best exemplified by the cases of Park Tae-jun, Lee Byung-chul, and Chung Ju-yung, the founders of POSCO, Samsung, and Hyundai, respectively. Each of the entrepreneurs faced tremendous disadvantages at the onset, but through excellent leadership and decision-making, they were able to grow their companies into the global brands they are today. The case studies provide meaningful lessons for businessmen and policymakers who wish to build competitive advantages in their fields despite their late entry in the market. Most important, these three leaders serve as good examples to prove the validity of the ABCD model by showing how a late starter without significant resources and capabilities can gain competitiveness among strong companies from advanced countries.

Keywords:   business leadership, Park Tae-jun, Lee Byung-chul, Chung Ju-yung, POSCO, Samsung, Hyundai
