    Abstract: Content-based IP is the core engine to create a ripple effect in the media industry, distinctive from a prevalent distribution strategy of contents. Despite being the latecomer in the IP business, The Korean media industry recognizes the importance of a content-based IP extension strategy. Therefore, this case study aims to identify common factors of successful IP extension cases in Korea and propose a typology of successful IP extension paths. Utilizing the resource-based theory (RBV) and knowledge-based view (KBV) to redefine content based-IP as intangible resources owned by the media industry, this study proposes this theoretical framework for the case study of IP extension analysis. The case study of IP extensions in Korea, which emerged from the broadcasting, web comics and web novels, provides implications for media industries seeking content-based IP extension strategies.

    Abstract: This publication documents the effects of an intervention in the exchange of knowledge, in which information inherent to ecient private organizations is used to improve the bureaucratic procedures of public bodies. In particular, it analyzes the impact of the Knowledge for Results (K4R) program on the eciency of public agencies in Colombia. The study findings indicate that K4R is associated with a statistically significant improvement in operational efficiency. Two examples of K4R are presented. In the first example, K4R reduced the time it took for local offices of the People's Ombudsman to consider citizens' petitions. In the second example, K4R reduced the time cancer patients spend in an emergency room before being discharged. These time reductions are quantitatively relevant and represent eciency gains of the order of 25% to 40% in relation to the levels prior to the program.
