In carrying out digital transformation, companies often start by changing the work culture. Unfortunately, many have started to change the external appearance of the work environment, such as building open spaces, putting up posters as a form of campaigning, or providing bean bags, but forget to build skills and talent. As a result, the digital transformation that was carried out did not change the company's work culture and failed or slowly contributed to the company's growth.

Digital transformation requires a change in substantive digital culture which includes changes in the perspective and behavior of employees, agility skills, collaboration, and a digital mindset. With that, everyone in the company will be able to make technology an enabler that accelerates company productivity and growth.
