enterprises operate in ever-growing dynamic, changing, and competitive
environment. These factors demand from modern
enterprises an agility quality, but what is agility when considering such a complex phenomenon as an enterprise. This thesis tries to
develop a generic conceptual model for defining an agile enterprise from a socio-technical point of view, which resulted in a framework
for designing an agile enterprise. The proposed framework is based on literature review and interview with industry experts. An extensive
literature study is conducted with the purpose of eliciting notions, properties, and concepts surrounding enterprise agility. A literature
based conceptual framework is synthesized by analysis of notions, concepts, and properties attributed to enterprise agility, which clarifies
interrelation between different concepts and aspects of agility. The proposed framework separates different aspects of enterprise agility.
Then, the framework is validated and modified through nine semi-structured expert interviews to conform to the real world. Finally,
“enterprise ontology,” “normalized systems,” and “control organizations” are discussed as necessary theoretical foundations for addressing
the different aspects of the proposed framework.
