Description

The outbreak of COVID-19 caused an unprecedented crisis on a global scale. To overcome this situation companies had to accelerate their digital transformation with the adoption of teleworking tools and agile methods. They have started to prepare their recovery for the post-COVID-19 and how to sustain this transformation. The challenge arising is to answer (1) how to reconcile performance and sustainable development and (2) whether we can achieve sustainable digital transformations. This thesis uses qualitative and quantitative methods: The qualitative will bring sharp insights from 13 experts and relate facts and experiences. The quantitative analysis from 120 respondent comes to support or deny statements from experts’ interviews with figures and numbers. The study concludes that COVID-19 impacted all businesses regardless of size and that the impact was proportional to the level of digitalization. It has also accelerated digital transformation which contributed to make businesses more sustainable.
