Abstract:While organizations and alliances for collaboration have been promoted by governments for many years, their performance has not been very meaningful in terms of activation or outcome, particularly in South Korea. Thus, as a tool for creating new industries and growth engines, a new form of collaboration platform—convergence alliances—is being promoted in South Korea. In order to explore the distinct characteristics and advantages of convergence alliances, this research compares this new type of platform with existing collaboration platforms. By using a case analysis framework with in-depth interviews, this research suggests several implications for promoting convergence alliances, including the combination of manufacturing and service industries, more opportunities for small- and medium-sized enterprises, the avoidance of opportunistic behaviors, the development of new types of objectives, and the introduction of relevant policy actions and government support.
