Abstract: Business organizations tend to re-engineer their business processes by adopting Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems in order to gain a competitive advantage. ERPs offer countless benefits by enabling an enterprise to operate as an integrated, process oriented and real time enterprise. But the issue is re-engineering with ERP ranks among slow-moving, costly and challenging processes of an organization. Many ERP specialists regard agile approaches positively, to mitigate the common ERP implementation challenges. Agile implementation of ERPs is still under research area. This research discusses on the need of agile approaches in ERP implementations and how agility and ERP implementations can coexist. In this case our research question is “Can the common ERP implementation challenges be solved by using agile approaches?” and if so, “How these challenges can be solved?” This study also seeking for uplift the level of awareness on the applicability of agility for ERP implementation projects and these findings can be effectively used by ERP Implementers, Vendors, Consultants, Project Managers and Researchers in their respective projects.
