The Korean economy is going through the polarization of several area such as industry,
employment, income, etc. It is mentioned that rapid structural change of industry,
paradigm shift of technology and globalization are major factors reinforcing those trends.
However, the majority of existing researches are on the stage of situation description,
statistical analysis and assertion. This study based on these research background examined
the gap of technological capability between large companies and small and medium
companies in terms of firm's adoption and diffusion of technological capability.
According to the result of theoretical and empirical analyses it is obvious that the gap
of technological capability between large companies and small and medium companies is
existing. Also, empirical result shows that the scale of R&D investment and the
experience of technology transfer are significant factors to build up firm's technological
capability. In the case of Korean manufacturing industry, the level of those factors of
small and medium companies is analysed much lower than that of large companies.
In addition, the empirical result is supporting the hypothesis that technological
capability plays an important role in firm's performance. Strong technological capability
usually enables firms to react effectively on the rapid change of competing environment.
So, in terms of policy implication how to develop the technological capability of small
and medium firms is the key to solve the polarization of firms. Based on the study policy
scheme to make human capital of research and development flow into small and medium companies will be one of the most effective strategy against the polarization of firms'
