The fundamental thesis of this paper is "an agile organizational culture is only enabled when a holistic enterprise understanding, typically held implicitly by a select few, is rendered explicit for the benefit of the whole organization". The paper briefly examine the assumptions that constitute our current understanding of organizational culture and its perceived lethargic predisposition to change. From this assessment, an agile enterprise management framework is presented, whose underpinning methodology alters the paradigm of organizational based management by recognizing and leveraging corporate capabilities.
