To successfully transform digitally, in addition to applying new technologies and business models, organizations need to focus on personal factors in general and corporate culture in particular to be able to manage change in the organization to function flexibly. Priorities must be established, taking into account short-term and long-term needs. Strategic management must be used to keep the organization ahead of technology.
