Purpose This study investigates the new management paradigm for pesantren from the standpoint of societal transformation in the digital age. Social change is considered in modern management, technology, educational reforms, and quality assurance. Design/methodology/approach: This study uses a quantitative research methodology to investigate the new pesantren management paradigm from the standpoint of social transformation. 155 valid responses to a questionnaire survey were used for data collection and analysis. PLS-SEM, or partial least squares structural equation modeling, was used to analyze the data.
Findings: As a result of social change, pesantren administration is modernized, and the educational system has altered due to increased digitization. As a result, the administration of pesantren has undergone many adjustments due to social development. The management of pesantren can be improved in the digital age through modern management, technology, educational changes, and quality assurance. Practical implications: The administration of pesantren must adopt a new paradigm in the current era of digitization. Pesantren's management needs modern management, technology, educational reforms, and quality assurance to handle social change. Therefore, practitioners should consider social change when developing strategies for pesantren management. Originality/value: The interesting aspect of this study is how it manages pesantren by employing social transformation. Pesantren management was the subject of prior studies, but pesantren management was not viewed in light of social change.
