Abstract : The objective of this study is to present a systematic literature review of agility in health care covering the essence of published articles, limitations and future research avenues. Its contribution to the body of knowledge is twofold. First, it classifies the literature based on seven parameters: year, country, research method, results, context, limitations and future research direction to provide an overview of the accomplished research works. Second, it highlights the research gap in the current literature and provides direction for future research. The findings suggest that the extant literature has not been able to obtain a strong theoretical grounding in the field, and validation of the proposed theories, models and frame work awaits future research attention. Thus the lack of extensive exploration of agile literature gives way to a vast area of exploration for future research. © Copyright 2019 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.
