“For sustainable growth, Thai SMEs need to recognize that the global economy is transforming quickly towards the 4th industrial revolution of intelligence, smart technology and creativity. The biggest hurdle facing Thai and all Asian companies is how to transform the organization internally and then the business model to deliver new solutions to survive. This is why it is not about productivity anymore but how a company creates value in a new way. This is what we do in the Consulus Business Design Methodology to help them transform before their businesses become obsolete,” Chong said.
