Abstract: Abstract This study investigates the South Korean government’s effort to promote macro-level quality development. Using the single case study method, the authors examined 28 empirical studies published for Korean audiences that discussed the quality development initiative in South Korea which occurred between the 1950s and the mid 2010s. The results revealed the Korean government’s unique model for macro-level quality development. Discussed herein is the key strategic approach for the governance of the initiative, its timeline, the innovative policy and administration necessary for sound governance, and the contribution of collaborative partnerships. An investigation into this iterative, macro-level, quality development process in South Korea provides insight into the process of shifting perspective about quality and establishing a culture of continuous quality improvement to gain a competitive edge in the global market.
