American business folklore is awash with the adventures of successful entrepreneurs. Still, most of these stories are about Americans, neglecting important and courageous entrepreneurs from other countries. Made in Korea recounts the story of how Chung Ju Yung rose from poverty to build one of the world's largest and most successful building empires - Hyundai - through a combination of creative thinking, tenacity, timing, political skills, and a business strategy that few competitors ever understood. Chung entered the shipbuilding business with no experience and went on to create the world's largest shipyard. He began making automobiles when foreign experts unanimously predicted he would fail, and he started a global construction company that has built some of today's greatest architectural wonders. He even convinced the International Olympic Committee to select South Korea over Japan as the site for the highly successful 1988 Olympics. Unlike most CEO's of major firms, Chung has always preferred the company of his workers to that of the global executive elite. Hard work, creativity and a capacity to never give up - this is the essence of Chung's life. In each of his ventures, he exhibited a sheer determination to succeed, regardless of the obstacles, and he worked tirelessly to instil this drive in all of his employees. Even today, in the midst of Korea's worst economic crisis in over four decades, Chung's company is busy implementing plans to emerge as an even stronger contender in the world economy. Illustrated with 32 pages of colour photographs not previously seen in the West, including photos of Chung's recent historic visit to North Korea in 1998, Made in Korea takes stock of Chung's entire life, highlighting both his contributions to society and the lessons his work can teach to aspiring entrepreneurs.

Throughout the last several decades, Korean companies have become strong global competitors in a wide range of manufacturing industries. How did they achieve this exceptional performance? The Evolution of Tiger Management uncovers the secret of their success through a comprehensive analysis of Korean-style management.? It explains how it has developed, why it works so well, what non-Koreans can learn from it, and what Korean companies need to do to stay competitive in the future. This book is an extended and significantly updated new edition of Tiger Management: Korean companies on world markets (Routledge, 2012). It tells the remarkable stories of how Korean firms, seemingly coming from nowhere, have successfully challenged their Western and Japanese competitors globally. A new chapter highlights the rise of Korean venture firms and start-ups. Next, the essence of Tiger Management is analyzed by showing that it consists of an effective combination of business strategy, leadership, and human resource management practices. Finally, the evolution and future of Tiger Management is discussed by showing how Korean companies have adapted to changes at home and abroad, and how non-Korean companies can adopt Tiger Management. A new final chapter discusses the way forward for Korean companies.

This guidebook to Asia's elite in the 21st century profiles the often-secretive billionaires who are driving the recovery of the Asian economy. Completely revised and fully updated, Geoff Hiscock's best-selling guide explores the new business themes sweeping through the region and examines Asia's 100 richest families. He explains how they fought their way to the top and looks at the next generation who hope to carry on their amazing success in the new, networked world. When Asia's Wealth Club first appeared, Hong King was still a British colony, Suharto was in the presidential palace in Jakarta, the Korean conglomerates saw expansion as the only game plan and the Sultan of Brunei was the richest man in Asia. Now everything has changed - including the membership of Asia's wealth club. Twenty-eight of the 100 names that were on the 1997 list did not survive to make it into Asia's New Wealth Club at the start of the 21st century, and every single ranking of the 100 billionaires on that list has changed. For the newcomers, particularly those in India, Japan and Greater China, two words encapsulate their rise: mobile internet. More than globalization, more than any other technological innovation of the past two decades, the internet in its mobile access mode is remaking Asia and Asian fortunes - just as it is in Europe and the Americas. It is this proposition that has been embraced so enthusiastically by young entrepreneurs in India, Japan, China, Korea and the rest of South-east Asia, people like Masayoshi Son of Softbank, Richard Li of Pacific Century CyberWorks in Hong Kong and Jeffrey Koo, Jr. of Chinatrust in Taiwan.
