The purpose of the current study is to see what implications Nonaka's hypertext organization concept has to Korean companies. For this, first characteristics and stages of the knowledge evolution in Korean companies were reviewed compared with those in companies in advanced countries. Hyundai Motors was analyzed for an evidence case from which characteristics and stages of knowledge evolution in Korean companies could be figured. From these analyses it was found that the context where Nonaka's hypertext organization cocpet is based on could be different from contexts some Korean companies could experience, suggesting that the applicability of the Nonaka's concept might have some limitation.
