Implementing change processes in this digital age is especially dependant on the following two factors:
- A functioning company culture that enables an agile approach on constantly variable change.
- A strong management level, that lives and drives the concepts of transformation as an example.
Especially management needs to recognise, communicate and set tangible focus on the challenges that occur due to digitalisation. Companies need to become aware that digitalisation is now a normality in company strategy, organisation and culture. Without cultural change there is no digital transformation. And only people, who are concerned with their own thinking patterns and culture, can facilitate others in their behavioural- and thinking patterns, in order to promote successful transformation.
