Organisational agility and its perceived benefits from Australian perspectives
Organisational agility helps businesses to sustain their competitive advantage and contributes to business success. It accelerates shared knowledge and learning processes that meet the pace of rapid environmental change. Despite the awareness of agile application, perceived benefits in relation to major characteristics of organisational agility have not been fully investigated. This research aims to explore and report relationships between 20 agile characteristics and 15 perceived benefits from the perspectives of Australian industry sectors. Descriptive and correlation statistics were employed to establish background of 36 research respondents and to indicate relationships of the studied variables. Degrees of correlation were closely examined. The research results showed that only some benefits of organisational agility were perceived and linked to the key characteristics of agility. The research also found different combinations of organisational agility that constructed individual perceived benefits.
