With the development of civilization, the economic globalization has been an irresistible trend around the world. The East Asian's economic renewal implies both miracles and crisis. The cause of East Asian's development bottleneck, ironically, is due to its originally successful "East Asian Model". Therefore East Asian enterprises are painstakingly exploiting a new model to upgrade their core competence. The extent and speed of economic prosperity will largely depend on how successfully Southeast Asia learns to cope with globalization, and to use other countries' management approaches for reference.In fact, almost all of the management modes, from Euro-American model to Japanese model, not only have domestic culture and economic underpinnings, but also absorb others' valuable experiences. The discipline of the Comparative Management was just born from such kind of business issues. At a theoretic point, this dissertation tries to conform the existent Comparative Management theory and to get some new ideas from the research process. At a practical point, I try to exploit brand new management modes for Chinese and Korean corporations by comparing the two contraries' management modes under the theoretical guidance.The theoretic foundation part includes the introduction of the Comparative Management theory and Management Grafting theory. These theoretic contents play an important role in management research and practical work, especially, in every step of this dissertation writing process, such as problem identification, framework formulation, and approach application. What worth to mention is that, I try to look at the State Owned Enterprises' Reformation issues, a hotspot very attractive for Chinese scholars, at a fresh lens-the Comparative Management lens. That is why I briefly describe these issues in the first part.The comparison research part is based on the data and cases from the real business world. This part analyzes the Chinese and Korean models thoroughly by focusing on the following four elements--evolutionary path, organization, management system, and corporate culture.Evolutionary Path: The evolutionary paths of Chinese and Korean models are different due to their different rooted circumstances. I first analyze the processes of the two evolution styles, and then compare the two distinct paths. Specifically, this part digs out the malpractices of the Korea model to explain why Korea enterprises were so fragile during South East Asian Financial Crisis in 1997. Organization: The Modern Corporate Institution is very popular for both Chinese and Korea enterprises. Korea has roughly established the Modern Corporate Institution by now, while China is still on her initial level. I compare the characters of two countries' organization in this part.Management System: Enterprises in China and Korea have different property mechanism,motivation mechanism, and decision-making mechanism due to their totally different social system. By identifying two model's strength and weakness, I try to accelerate the speed of the management system establishment process. Corporate Culture: Confucian culture underpins the corporate culture of Chinese and Korea enterprises. Besides the similarity, this part also compares their culture difference-Chinese corporate culture focuses on her Eastern identification, while Korean corporate culture carries relatively more Western flavor.The last part is prospect and reflection. First I advance the personal view of the development trend of Chinese and Korean enterprises in the new century respectively, and then analyze Chinese State Owned Enterprises Reformation issues by applying the experiences from Korea. I sincerely hope this research work would bring fertile implication and instructive application to Chinese and Korean corporate management on both theoretic and practical tracks.
