Abstract

In this study, the characteristics and behaviors of four factors - IT strategies and objectives, the government, the private sector, and the public - were analyzed in order to understand the IT Development model of Korea. First, from the perspective of IT strategies and objectives, the Korean government has established challenging goals and concentrated national resources in order to achieve the pressurized growth of the IT industry in a relatively short period of time. Second, the government took the lead by establishing the direction of IT development. As well as having provided indirect support to both the private and the public sectors, the government is recognized as having played the key role in the development of Korea’s IT sector. Third, corporations in the private sector, with the support of the government, formed a coalition for innovation-oriented development. (The rest omitted)
