Past research on the effect of ERP systems on agility is contradictory, and research on the post implementation effects of ERP systems on agility is limited. Employing a cross sectional field study, this exploratory study analyses how key defining features of enterprise systems environment-integration, process optimisation, and best practices-affect agility. Standardisation of processes has mixed effect on agility and depends on the extent of standardisation implemented and whether it included prior simplification. Rather than the ERP-system enabled environment, the inadequacies in implementation and poor process optimisation prior to ERP implementation are restricting process agility. © 2013 Indian Institute of Management Bangalore.
