As the modern business environment is highly volatile and demanding, orchestrating all business and IT components and capabilities are crucial. Firms use enterprise architecture (EA) for this purpose. However, it is currently by no means clear how EA-driven firm capabilities facilitate becoming agile. When firms are agile, they can recombine digital resources to change the business practice while also coping with uncertainty and recovering rapidly from disruption through innovative digital technologies. This study embraces the dynamic capability view (DCV), develops a model, and validates the associated hypotheses using cross-sectional data from 177 firms using a Partial Least Squares approach. The outcomes show that EA-driven dynamic capabilities are a crucial antecedent of digital project benefits. In turn, these benefits positively enhance agility. The findings shed light on becoming agile, and this study providing insights and guidance on achieving the EA-driven benefits.
