Towards an Innovation Policy in the Post Catch-Up Era
Hwang, Hye-Ran ; Choung, Jae-Yong ;
Asian Journal of Innovation and Policy, volume 2, issue 1, 2013, Pages 1~19
DOI : 10.7545/ajip.2013.2.1.001
As the catch-up innovation system was exposed to a new competition environment in which second-tier catch-up countries reduced the gap with Korea and advanced Korean firms entered into the frontier product market, it is experiencing system delay in terms of organizational and policy change. Therefore, innovation policy needs to be reorganized from a dynamic perspective to analyze the problems in the transition period and enable the system to overcome organizational and institutional delays. This article investigates the characteristics of transition periods in terms of external environment changes and internal socio-economic pressures. Based on the analysis of environment changes and catch-up system characteristics, it suggests the framework for policy intervention, direction, and practical principles for post catch-up innovation policy. In particular, it suggests the network-based developmental state and policy implementation in order to overcome the limitation of centralized developmental state of catch-up periods.
Trend-Casting in the Interactive Digital Media Industry: Some Results and Guidelines
Sharma, Ravi S. ; Yi, Yang ;

In this practice article, we present the results of a scenario planning approach that is a hybrid of the three main schools of thought. Our research objective was to study the future of Interactive Digital Media applications such as online music, on-demand television and massively multi-player online role-playing games. Our approach, while essentially qualitative in nature, nevertheless draws from the rigors of the quantitative school in identifying and then tracking the significant dimensions of analysis that emerge over time as strands of events leading to plausible scenarios. Our empirical analysis revealed mapping strands to three themes - ownership, distribution and innovation - which we used in an expert validation exercise to formulate scenarios. We present and discuss the major findings and implications of this empirical investigation. In a nutshell, we conjecture that an open, competitive IDM marketplace with performance safeguards may serve both and lead to a win-win scenario. While there are differences among IDM sectors, a unified approach to regulation and policy would be effective.
A New Measurement to Understand Convergence Phenomenon
Kim, Keun-Hwan ; Moon, Yeong-Ho ;

Many scholars have persevered in understanding the convergence process by developing a measurement that reflects the characteristics of the convergence phenomenon as a process. Recently a series of studies suggested a framework in terms of diversity and coherence. However, an index for coherence is required to reflect the vital features of the conceptual definition, and thus a new index for coherence is proposed in this paper. Technology Convergence Index combines diversity and coherence and indicates the degree of the convergence in information computer technology (ICT), biotechnology (BT) and nanotechnology (NT) sectors. The index can not only be used to track each technology field that consists of a major technology sector, but also to compare other leading countries. Based on a comparison study between the United States and South Korea, the degrees of technology convergence of Korea in ICT, BT, and NT sectors have ameliorated.
Performance Evaluation Index of TRM: A Korean Case for SMEs
Park, SunYoung ; Son, JongKu ; Seo, JuHwan ; Seo, Jinny ;

There is the need for performance evaluation and the identification of key success factors for utilizing technology roadmaps (TRM), but relevant research does not yet exists in this field. In Korea, the Small and Medium Business Administration has implemented the "Support Program for the Individual Company Technology Roadmaps" to promote the establishment of technology development strategies by SMEs. This study developed the framework and indices for performance analysis, designed and implemented survey for TRM performance analysis, and analyzed TRM performance of the companies that have participated in the above program from 2008 to 2011. This study compared the supported 97 companies and 102 companies not supported and analyzed quantitative and qualitative performance and satisfaction levels among the supported companies to compare low-performance companies and high-performance companies. This study aims to examine the KSF of TRM in terms of input and process. Also we suggested significant insights into the performance of TRM in terms of output.
Market Approach to Valuation Based on Technology Transfer Cases in Korea
Kim, Sang-Gook ; Lee, Hyun ; Park, Hyun-Woo ;
Asian Journal of Innovation and Policy, volume 2, issue 1, 2013, Pages 97~122
DOI : 10.7545/ajip.2013.2.1.097
This study secured comparable sales transaction information of technology transfer corresponding to an active market conditions and proposes a method to assess the similarity of technologies with regard to comparability of technology transfer based on these cases information. In order to analyze the association and similarity between target technology and sales transactions, it proposes the significant factors affecting royalty decision and the cosine coefficient method by industry categories. It also proposes the method to adjust royalty, which means that this method unlike the conventional method provides clear standards to valuators in order to revise royalty. Therefore, it offers a solution to the difficulties of applying the market approach for a lot of valuators that have wanted to apply it and objective method to enhance the reliability of the value of intangible asset evaluated by the market approach.
