Over the past years, Growth hacking is the buzzword that its term is still fresh and is
differently interpreted worldwide. As the majority of its success mostly presents in Techworld as it assist Start-up like Facebook, Airbnb and Dropbox achieve the exponential
growth in very short-period. As such, it is gaining popularity rapidly in the more innovative
SME in nowadays. This study aims to explore “the importance of its mind-set” for
implementing GH mind-sets into SME corporate structure, improving strategic decision to
enhance its competitive advantage and sustainability. A qualitative research methodology is
used to reach the research purpose and question. Results and Finding from qualitative

Chapter 1: Introduction
Our world is continually changing and becoming more globalised, one of key drivers is
“Internet of Things” (IOT) that drive “Digital transformation” (Sloman & Phelan, 2018). Many
developed countries has already evolved to maintain its competitive advantage, investing
more on new technology that could assist its firm to be more innovative, and reform the way
of doing business by integrating with the new technology. Put it differently, digital economy
has transformed the traditional boundaries of World economy, shaping the notions of how
business model is structured; how firms are connected and interacted to drive greater
products and services to end-users (Sloman et al., 2018). For example, “Uber, the world’s
largest Taxi company, owns no vehicles. Alibaba, the most valuable retailer has no
inventory”. Another example, “Airbnb, the world’s largest accommodation provider, owns no
real estate” (Goodwin et al.,2015). According to Teece et al. (1997), focusing only the
traditional way of doing business without utilizing the concept of “Dynamic Capabilities” is no
longer assist firm to achieve sustained competitive advantage in the market . Wang and
Ahmed (2007) defined “Dynamic capabilities” as the firm’s ability to integrate, build, and
reconfigure internal and external competences to address rapidly changing environment.
Given that “Data” is becoming essential resources that many businesses primarily invest as
it provides the insightful information that businesses can reduce costs and catalyse the
analytics process, enhancing possibility to transform and improve its existing business
models. In this context, the convergence of IOT and Digital Transformation tend to have
critical impacts on all firms that necessitates to innovatively react and adapt the right mindset to fit with the challenge of Digital economy era, shaping a greater firm’s operational
efficiencies and competitive advantage.
Similarly in Thailand, Thai government is trying to promote “Thailand 4.0” as a new solution
for the economic expansion and economic model that aim to improve the prosperity of the
country by solving the problem of the middle-income trap and drive the country to highincome range. In order to escape the middle-income trap and utilize the benefit of digital
economy, Thai companies like SMEs (Small-Medium enterprise) must evolve and consider
the progress in the direction of “Value-based economy” or “Innovation”, start focusing more
on new technology and innovative ways of doing business. According to European Union,
SME (Small-Medium sized enterprise) is a convenient term for segmenting businesses and
organizations that is a legally independent company with fewer than 250 employees
(Papadopoulos et al., 2015).2
This trend tends to be a great opportunities for Thailand’s Growth, but it also has
knock-on effect on Thai SME, forcing them to adapt its corporate strategy to survive and
maintain its competitiveness in the market. However, Thailand 4.0 could become a threat for
some SMEs that are unable to transform its corporate structure to fit with the change in
Thailand economy. Therefore, Thai SMEs must concern on how they can react and leverage
its resources to reformulate its strategic planning and corporate structure in order to optimise
these challenged opportunities in Thailand 4.0. One example of Thai firm, who has already
implemented its Digital transformation strategy, leveraging the technological opportunities in
Thailand 4.0, is “Siam Commercial Bank (SCB), a top Thai Bank retailer. According to
Arkkrapridi (2018) SCB has achieved significant investment milestones with 60 leading
venture capital funds and over “800 start-ups” in nearly 30 countries. Regarding this
success, it unlocked SCB to upgrade its management and interconnected link with key startups, leading venture capital funds, fin-tech leaders around the world. Arak (2018) stated that
this investment policy encompasses a significant step towards optimizing new technologies
and innovation that will benefit SCB, enhancing the bank’s digital capabilities and flexible
business models suited for today’s digital world (SCB ,2018). Thus, this strategic plan will
transform the mind-set of country’s banking industry, improving our economy to achieve
“Sustainable Growth” and enrich Thai society.
1.1 Research Background:
Over 50 years, “Marketing” is an essential part, it could defined as a tool for value creation,
communication and interaction with target audience, improving customer relationship in
ways that maximise firm’s objective and value (Kotler et. al., 2012). In other words, it is how
firm identify customer needs and then analyses to make decisions in order to satisfy those
needs profitably and better than its competitors (Trustrum, 1989). According to Sukhraj
(2017), in the past, Marketing focused on the traditional use of advertisement through
national media channels such as radio, television and newspaper in order to reach out the
new targeted customers. While in the era of Digital economy, Digital marketing throws out all
the rules about marketing by using Digital channel to achieve the massive customer
acquisition through available online tools such as Social media, SEO (Search Engine
Optimisation) and Blogging (Biyani, 2013).
Basically, Digital marketing is one type of marketing process and activities that try to
promote brand, products or services and to reach customers using Digital channels
(Chaffey, 2009). Its tools and channels may differ from the traditional marketing, but its
objectives and mind-set stay, as Digital marketer mainly focuses more on creating brand
value and customer acquisition, ignoring and overlooking the importance of user needs,3
product development process and company’s growth as top priority (Wegrowth, 2017).Due
to the rapid growing of Start-up, “Start-ups is a human institution designed to create a new
product or service under conditions of extreme uncertainty” (Ries, 2011). Focusing only
customer acquisition and marketing process is no longer to be effective and compatible
enough for growing Start-up. Therefore, the next level of Digital marketer is a person who
focused on quality in the marketing strategy through product development process, utilizing
the use of data for analytics tools, experiment and strategic decision-making (Bibovski,
2016). That is how Growth hacking was come in, to fulfil the gap that traditional and digital
marketer do not have. Although its channels and Digital tools might be similar to Digital
marketing but they are different in mind-set, objectives and goals. That is, GH conducts
experiment in order to find exactly what work for you. (Agryis, 2016; Wegrowth, 2017)
Sean Ellis, a successful entrepreneur and Start-up advisor, coined the term Growth
hacking in 2010 as a person who are hybrid of marketers, data analyst and product
developer, or a multi-tasking person who is an experiment-driven marketing that is
compatible for growing business under uncertainty and support the nature of Start-up
(Holiday, 2013;Argyris, 2016). According to Holiday (2013), he pointed out that Growth
hacking involves the product development and marketing process that many Start-ups
company can benefit from if they understand its concept of what Growth hacking process is
and how to implement it. However, the corporate structure for SME and Start-up are totally
different, especially in Thailand, Start-up is very new and becoming popular trend. As a
result, the reason why GH techniques could not be applied to all types of business is that it
does not have one set of rules that works universally for all types of products. Hence, the
implementation of Growth hacking technique is not similar depending on the target audience
and product characteristics.
Therefore, this research project aims to explore the importance of GH mind-set and
the extents of its mind-set could bring to improve SME strategic decision-making in Thailand
1.2 Research Objective:
1) To explain the importance of GH Mind-set.
2) To explain how GH mind-set could assist SME in strategic decision-making in
How Growth hacking mind-set could be implemented with SME corporate structure?
What are the Growth hacking Mind-sets that support SME strategic decisionmaking in Thailand 4.0
What are limitations of applying Growth hacking mind-set with SME?
1.3 Research Aim and Value:
This dissertation would briefly present on exploring the concept of Thailand 4.0 as it is
becoming an essential progress of Thailand reformation. Thus, this research would mainly
focuses on the GH as a mind-set and how SME could implement its mind-set and thinking in
order to improve its current corporate structure, enhancing strategic planning and decisionmaking to be compatible with Digital economy era. The intersection of topics could be drawn
and discussed between The emerge of Growth hacking mind-set and Strategic decisionmaking in Thailand 4.0, providing a practical advice, and enabling a better understanding for
future growth of SMEs, not only just in Thailand but to compete with multinational firms.
Therefore, this dissertation aims to fill this gap in literature by evaluating the research finding
based on primary and secondary data. This paper will be the first milestone and significant
purpose for any further study who wish to employ GH mind-set that the term itself is very
new and rapidly gaining popularity in the more innovative SME in business world. Hence,
this dissertation aims to answer the research question and also provide some
recommendation and practical solution to utilise its thinking to gain competitive advantage in
