Abstract

The need for agility has been with some businesses for many years, but it is becoming more of an important factor for more and more businesses. This paper examines the case of an electronic component distributor and develops the business agility enterprise model from theoretical and practical perspectives. It is about how to build the business agility enterprise towards competitive advantage. The data collected are grouped into two major components: 'architecture business' and 'infrastructure business'. The architecture business helps decrease the length of time that a company takes for a business change along the supply chain. The infrastructure business, on the other hand, lies in the better information shared, better customer relationship, sound financial position and intellectual property owned by the company so that it secures its position and overrides competitors. The dynamics of building the two business dimensions will lead to achieve the competitive advantage of the enterprise.
