Korean economic development within recent years has begun to attract the interest of Western economists with an enthusiasm similiar to that heretofore shown the Japanese management style. Two countries that have similiar characteristics such as overpopulation, poor resources, and Confucian tradition, might also have similiar management styles. However, the behavior pattern of Korean businessmen has several characteristics which differ from their Japanese counterparts. Interestingly, many of these differences result from a dissimiliar degree of Confucian influences. Accordingly, Korea has evolved its management system during a transition period influenced by traditional Confucianism, Japanese practices, and the American system. For the forseeable future, the Korean business environment will consist of a management style which is oriented comparatively more Japanese, than American. This paper first overviews, then compares the management styles of Japan and Korea to better understand both systems.
