The Amsterdam Digital Transformation Lab focuses on interdisciplinary research in the fields of management, innovation, and technology.
Digital transformation requires incumbents to update their managerial and organizational practice as well as business relationships. These changes are necessary to benefit from the capacity of digital technologies. Exploring the adoption of new technology such as AI or Cloud as an essential lever for digital transformation, we provide meaningful resources for educators, practitioners, and policymakers alike.
