“Chain” digital transformation of Small and medium-sized enterprises (2022), 20 chain digital transformation enterprises are selected as
samples, and based on the three dimensions of TOE theory, Applying fsQCA method and configuration thinking mode, different main
conditions are confi gured with each other to form a confi guration of suffi cient and necessary conditions, analyzing the actual cause and eff ect
