Dynamic capabilities have been a hot topic of conversation lately. There have been many studies about it and discussions that there is support for an object or vice versa. This research explores dynamic capabilities' effect on organizational resilience through digital transformation mediation. Data was taken by distributing questionnaires via Google form as primary data. Data analysis was performed with smart PLS. Of the two direct effect hypotheses, one hypothesis was proven to have a positive and significant relationship, namely, dynamic capabilities to organizational resilience. In contrast, dynamic capabilities to digital transformation had a negative but not significant relationship. A negative and insignificant effect was found on the relationship between dynamic capabilities on organizational resilience with digital transformation mediation.


Dynamic capabilities, Organizational resilience, Digital transformation.
