Extant research shows business-IT alignment to be both an enabler and inhibitor of overall organisational agility and has pointed to the need for finer grained perspectives to fully elucidate the relationship. This paper posits the view that, firstly, current approaches to reasoning about where rigidities are present that are preventing organisational agility are lacking in both granularity and sound ontology. Secondly, that in order to obtain the necessary granular view, the socio-technical dimension of the business-IT relationship must be examined. An initial conceptual model behind ongoing research into this topical problem area is presented.
