In recent years, there has been a rise in addressing digital transformation and different technological advances at the organizational level. However, leadership and technological advancement studies together are moderated. Digital transformation is bringing new challenges every day. This research investigates the necessary leadership skills needed at an organizational level during digital transformation. When an organization introduces new technologies, it brings in changes at various levels.
