Abstract: The successful implementation project of the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) has many benefits for the implementing organisation. However, on other side, failing this project would have several negative implications not only on the business but also on the ERP vendor. Therefore, considering all the factors that might affect the success of this project is considered as a priority for all parties involved in this project. Many papers or journal articles have studied the Critical Success Factors (CSFs) that influence the ERP implementation and post implementation phases, however, very few has considered them from the stakeholders’ perspective. Hence, this research will fill this gap by providing a systematic review for the literature related to CSFs in the ERP implementation and also present them while considering the participants’ different perspectives. This paper presents a systematic review of 35 research articles published on the CSFs implementation between 2000 and 2013. We collected and analysed 35 of the key articles discussing and analysing ERP implementation. The paper identifies a total of 51 CSFs in ERP implementation. In these 51 CSFs, top management support and commitment, training and education, project management, clear vision and objectives of the ERP system, careful change management and Interdepartmental communication were the most frequently cited as the CSFs to the successful implementation of ERP systems. A better understanding of the CSFs will help the practitioners and managers to improve the chance of success in the implementation projects.
