The success of current global enterprise resource planning (ERP) programmes depends on a wider
range of factors than encountered in previous ERP efforts. Therefore, a better understanding of how
these factors contribute to the effectiveness of ERP will aid programme development. To this end, the
validity of twelve success factors with two to seven associated management actions derived by prior
research was verified by a survey evaluated with structural equation modelling (SEM) based on the
partial least squares (PLS) algorithm. This study was able to verify all twelve success factors and
more than 80% of the associated management actions. The results form a predictive model of success
probability of global ERP programmes.
