Conceptualizing Dimensions Of Enterprise Resource Planning Systems Success: A Sociotechnical Perspective
The success of implementing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system has substantial benefits to an organization due to its large scale tangible and intangible benefits. However, the failure of ERP system implementation is a considerable challenge since it poses significant intervention on internal stakeholders, internal organization, business processes and technology. Though literature recognizes that these interventions bring about technological change during ERP implementation, hardly any article has conceptualized these interventions in evaluating its performance. Drawing on the Process-Variance (PV) and Adapted Socio Technical (AST) system perspectives, the objective of this article is to conceptualize the interventions through socio-technical perspective and develop a comprehensive conceptual model to assess the success or failure of ERP system implementation. The conceptual model, Process-Variance and Adapted SocioTechnical (PVAST) proposed in this article will enable decision makers and practitioners to measure ERP project performance at every stage of its life cycle in a coherent method and adopt corrective measures.
