Digital transformation is more than just technology; it's about remodeling businesses to be agile, innovative, and customer centric at their core.

The culture has to embrace the concept of “what is possible”  to allow  the organization to connect dots and overcome internal business silos.  Digital transformation will impact every industry in different ways from business goals to the underlying fabric of the organization.

To transform a company you must have a culture open to new ideas and different perspectives. As a leader, you need to actively draw those ideas out and create an environment that allows them to flourish. Reach down and search for good ideas wherever they come from
