About the Câmara Municipal Nova Friburgo | Brazil. Written on March, 2022
The concept of digital transformation has piqued the interest of both private and public sectors alike. In Brazil, the decentralised nature of government, comprising over 5,000 municipalities, creates an intricate landscape for implementing digital change.

It examines how the interaction between technology, organisational culture, and change management theories, particularly John Kotter's 8 Steps to Leading Change, can either facilitate or impede the digital transition.
