Culture at the Core: A Playbook for Digital Transformation in a Changing World
Digital transformation is more than a new digital business model or process; like any substantive change, it is cultural at its core. The goal of transformation – to reinvent the organization – is an inherently risky prospect in itself. During the pandemic, the stakes were raised, and suddenly, organizations were forced to accelerate digital transformation in order to survive.
Where people work, how they work, how they are led, how teams are organized, who they report to (if anyone), how they interact with different cultures, the bandwidth, and tools they are given to be successful, the values that the organization exhibits and more are all being redefined. The success of a transformation will depend on how all these elements are integrated into the organization. A great culture is a harbinger of successful transformation, as it requires a framework and strong commitment from the organization to make it happen.

What does this new era have in store? How can you successfully transform, be a strong player in the new economy, and survive and thrive longer than competitors?
