Agile project management methods have been widely adopted since the publication of the Agile manifesto. However, the nature of project agility needs further theoretical development and empirical support. Consequently, this study defines project agility and then explores the factors that influence project teams’ achievement of agility. Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS) theory is adopted as a theoretical lens suitable to address the emerging, co-evolving nature of projects. A case-based research methodology is used to examine several analytics projects. Overall, the proposed study is designed to contribute to the project agility literature by applying CAS theory in the context of business analytics.
