This is the first book to fully explain the changing management and business models in the current era of important new developments in knowledge and information occurring all over the world. The research and its outcomes presented here focus especially on diverse cases from emerging countries in East Asia, where local companies face similar technological change.
The pandemic has seriously changed people's lives and affected the development of society as a whole, while digital technologies have become even more greatly in demand. Those are very difficult to fit into traditional management models created decades ago, however. For the successful implementation of such a transition, new paradigms, models, and technologies for the transformation of control systems are needed. To meet that need, a new paradigm to bring about innovation under the new knowledge transformation system is required.
This book presents the experiences of beginning such a knowledge transformation in East Asian countries. Despite the fact that the countries are in the same geographical region, their experiences are quite diverse, determined by cultural, historical, religious, and psychological factors. These differences appear not only in such important areas as R&D processes, but also in production, finance, HR management, and marketing. Readers will find innovative solutions for the transformation of management in the new knowledge transformation system that is the focus of this book.
