Abstract

Digital transformation (DT) has created a number of significant opportunities and related alterations in consumers' behaviours. However, consumers differ in adopting DT. There is still a need to investigate consumer's capabilities and his/her perception of other customers that supports or hinders the DT process. This study aims to investigate human thinking capabilities (critical thinking, holistic thinking and creative thinking) as drivers of two specific types of outcomes: DT barriers and/or DT nurture. In addition, this research also examines the linkage between human capabilities (three types of thinking) and other customers' perception. Finally, it postulates that other customers' perception drives DT barriers and/or DT nurture.Design/methodology/approachApplying to the public, private and international banking sectors, 273 questionnaires were collected. The collected data was analysed using AMOS as well as the PROCESS macro.FindingsThe results showed that human thinking capabilities have different effects on DT barriers and nurture. While critical thinking has a significant effect on DT barriers, both holistic thinking and creative thinking have a significant effect on DT nurture. Other customers' perception construct has a significant effect on both DT barriers and nurture. In addition, only holistic thinking has an effect on other customers' perception.Originality/valueThis study advances knowledge in three ways. Firstly, it examined DT barriers and nurture as variables from the customer's perspective. Secondly, it examined each human thinking capability on DT barriers and nurture, giving more insights. Thirdly, it studied human thinking capabilities as one of the main factors that might affect other customers' perception and DT barriers and nurture, while most previous studies focused only on other customers' perception's impact on DT barriers and nurture.
