Now the two companies stopped being existed, disappearing from our memories long ago.
Presently, South Korea's major companies are dominating domestic and global business scenes. Such business giants as Samsung, Hyundai, SK, and LG are boosting South Korea's image across the globe.
A question came into my mind. can they survive and be still dominant some 40 years from now?
The answer to the question is how they quickly and successfully adapt to the fast changing exterior environment.
The same is true in case of the United States as well. Once mighty corporations has disappeared into the history over the span of several decades or so.
The only exception is GE (General Electric) founded by Thomas Edison some 130 years ago. The "inventor of the modern light bulb" co-founded GE in 1892 by merging his company "Edison General Electric Company" with Thomson-Houston Electric Company.
The American conglomerate has long kept its status as top company over the years before the start of the Internet era. GE, an American multinational conglomerate, is still placed at 21 among Fortune 500 companies.
Once GE was named the Most Admired Company in the World by Fortune Magazine. There are many factors that has kept GE as the major company thus far.
However, I would like to point out its will to adapt to the fast changing business environment.
Whether it is individual, business, school, nation they cannot succeed or even survive without the innovation or strong will to change for the better.
Particularly in this fast changing world no one or nothing can survive without change or innovation.
With the development of the technology, particularly telecommunication, internet technology, the world is changing by leaps and bounds.
In the 1960s Canadian scholar Marshall McLuhan coined the term "global village" to describe the future world “tied together into a single globalized marketplace and village” due to the development of communication technology.
In this global village, everything around you is changing rapidly. That is why we have to change in order not to lag behind. We should always be ready to change and adapt to the new environment!
