  • Assessing pet industry in Korea using service quality improvement gap
           model
    • Authors: Hae-Geun Song, Sung-Uk Lim
      Pages: 2 - 20
      Abstract: Pet industry is anticipated to be growing at a high speed and relative pet policies will be in place soon as the Korean population is ageing. However, there has been no scientific approach to assess the pet industry and to improve it. For this, the authors propose a Service Quality Improvement (SQI) gap model with the improvement of quality attributes as a priority, which takes into consideration the two gaps between the satisfaction levels of employees and customers and between those of the own company and the competitors. The current study empirically analyses Korea's leading animal hospital and derives seven service quality attributes for the hospital. This paper surveys 56 regular customers and 36 internal employees. The results show that service quality attributes can be prioritised for improvement by using the proposed model. A validity test is conducted and suggestions for successful pet industry in Korea are also presented in this paper.

  • Leading the way into the future: the development of a (lead)
           market for care robotics in Japan
    • Authors: Florian Kohlbacher, Benjamin Rabe
      Pages: 21 - 44
      Abstract: Japan is an ideal country for studying the effects of demographic change and population ageing. This paper focuses on an ongoing market creation process for innovative technologies such as care robotics in Japan. The labour market situation in the Japanese healthcare market is worsening, and this is why some creative inventors and entrepreneurs try to develop technologies that can (1) enable aged persons to continue living independently in their usual environment and (2) improve processes in care facilities. Combining lead market theory, stakeholder theory and the literature on market emergence, we analyse two case studies involving the most notable developments in care robotics in Japan: the HAL robot suit and the therapeutic robot Paro. We identify the stakeholders in the market creation process of Japanese care robots and evaluate the lead market potential of this developing sector. The acceptance of such robotic technologies will also be discussed with reference to the cultural specifics of Japan and other countries.

  • A second chance for the flexible specialisation with robotics? Ageing
           society in Korea as a case
    • Authors: Florian Kohlbacher, Benjamin Rabe
      Pages: 45 - 58
      Abstract: The theory of flexible specialisation has been offering a challenging alternative to mass production system since its debut. Despite the attractiveness of the theory, practical applicability of the theoretical content has been weak. As time passes by, however, new momentum has been building up from the robotics and its related technology development, which can really open up the possibilities for flexible specialisation. Especially the advent of ageing society can be an impetus to change the industrial paradigm, due to labour shortage. This paper, noting the symptoms of change, has endeavoured with empirical data of Korea to see which industrial sectors are likely to start up this industrial change in the future.

  • Application of information technology in ageing society: a pursuit of
           creative economy in Korea
    • Authors: Florian Kohlbacher, Benjamin Rabe
      Pages: 59 - 76
      Abstract: The primary purpose of this paper is to empirically examine traits of IT, their relationships with corporate strategies and their influences on corporate performance in Korea. The secondary purpose of this research is to identify which IT traits are the most powerful fuels that firms in ageing society can apply in pursuit of creative economy. Research findings confirm that IT provides competitive advantages such as efficiency, threat, functionality, attack and integration. And the study shows that traits of IT significantly contribute to corporate performance and play significant mediating roles between corporate strategies and corporate performance. Research findings indicate that IT traits of efficiency and integration are the two most competitive advantages that IT could provide. Corporate strategies have indirect effects on corporate performance through traits of IT. Cost leadership strategy shows stronger associations with traits of IT than differentiation strategy does.

  • Strategic transformation of Shanzhai firms: evidence from a Chinese
           case
    • Authors: Xuefeng Liu, Yanxia Wu, Guowei Lai
      Pages: 77 - 94
      Abstract: The last several years have witnessed a huge growth of the Shanzhai mobile phone firms. However, in order to acquire long-term competitive advantages, Shanzhai mobile phone firms must make strategic transformations. This paper tries to explain the emergence and growth of Shanzhai mobile phone firms from theoretical views of modularity and disruptive innovation, and suggest that technological modularity facilitates the evolution of industrial value chain, which greatly lowers the threshold for local small firms' entry and promotes disruptive innovations. Shanzhai mobile phone firms start from low-end disruption, and by accumulating technology and market knowledge through resource integration, some of these firms can work their way up to eventually achieve independent innovation and their own brands, becoming major players in the market. Based on the case study of a Chinese firm, this paper explores the theoretical model of how Shanzhai mobile phone firms realise strategic transformation, and then discusses relevant policy implications.

  • Policy dissonance and the challenges of managing the impacts of South
           Korea's industrial and demographic transition through immigration
    • Authors: Ador R. Torneo, Seung-Bum Yang
      Pages: 95 - 111
      Abstract: This paper discusses how South Korea is increasingly, albeit reluctantly, relying on immigration to address the consequences of its industrial transformation which include, among others, low birth rate, a rapidly ageing population and labour shortages. It discusses how policy dissonance, the contradictions in government policies and the realities on the ground, produces mixed results which sometimes deviate from policy intentions. Specifically, the insistence on a restrictive anti-immigration regime in the face of increasing labour demands and unwillingness of domestic workers to take up low-paying jobs result in the twin problems of persistent undocumented immigration and increasing labour shortages. Likewise, the contradicting policy orientations of liberalisation and ethnicisation are also simultaneously being adopted into policies. Unless contradictions in policy intent and policy dissonance are addressed, policies will likely keep producing mixed results.
