This week Greg interviews Drew Kamthong of MAQE, a digital consultancy that started as a web design firm that has transformed into a full blown consulting agency for a myriad of digital solutions. Drew talks about some of the challenges companies face in Thailand, particularly when they implement modern management techniques such as Scrum and a workplace culture that rewards full transparency and merit-based promotions. Drew explains MAQE’s unique system of ‘guilds and crews’ to train and reward their people, the nuances of hiring (and employing) Thai and foreign staff, and the confusing process of applying for the coveted BOI status - and the benefits it brings - in the fast-paced tech industry.
