Achieving Resilience through Agility

Jan Pries-Heje, Richard L. Baskerville

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


Existing research reveals an overlap between the capabilities of an agile organization and the capabilities of a resilient organization. Using evidence from longitudinal case studies of three organizations, this paper explains how organizational resilience can be assimilated from organizational agility; and how organizational agility can be assimilated from IT project agility. The cases show how the capability to negotiate known contradictions in both resilience and agility is one facilitating feature in this assimilation.
