This study aims to identify Critical Success Factors (CSFs) in implementation of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems that are effective on organization success. While scholars have tried to apply concepts such as Change Management (CM), Knowledge Management (KM) and Innovation Management (IM) to offer solutions to overcome challenges in implementing ERP systems, the Transfer aspect of ERP implementation has been lessdeveloped; transfer from a developer company (vendor) to a receiver company. Hence, we have summarized our identified effective measures in ERP implementation and Technology Transfer (TT) into a questionnaire that was distributed among managers and experts of four Iranian large companies and their ERP vendors. Results from Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) shows that following five main factors are effective on ERP implementation success: Culture, Organizational Structure, Project Management, Support Activities and Training Issues and the Interaction between Transferor and Transferee. Furthermore, effect of each main factor on organization success has been calculated by Pearson method.
