Training can be good to develop ways to reduce errors, which is only one part of improving organizational performance.”

The absence of extensive communication and knowledge sharing leads to bureaucratic-style behavior, reduced efficiency in getting things done, and poor responsiveness when customers change their expectations.”
Wrong assumptions in digital transformation
