For these reason, the purpose of the study based on searching the strategy for Korean corporations to promote sustainable growth while gaining a competitive advantage in the world market. The study uses two analytical tools, Porter`s Diamond Model and Productivity Frontier by analyzing the smart phone industry where Korea, the United States and China are competing desperately.
