Organization has the innovate technology to compete in business. ERP system is one of technological innovations to help the managerial making decision making to improve the performance of companies. Thus, ERP is the important thing for organization’s survival. Based on previous research that the organizations have complexity in ERP implementation. According to survey global study (2017) the most companies still use traditional methods to implement ERP, and they have ensured that agile methods are one solution and become the challenges in replacing traditional methods in stages. It considers that agile methods will improve efficiency, the speed of response, relatively achieve the simplicity in managing business processes. Therefore, it is better to understanding comprehensively about an implementation method in order to manage ERP implementation success. Thus, we intend to propose a method approaching the solution to improve the ERP implementation success. This paper, the authors are analyze using Systematic Literature Review to recognize the critical factors for development an agile ERP model that was selected 54 papers for further research. The research findings reveal for identifying the factors of the agile principles in order to improve the ERP implementation. The purpose of this paper is to mapping the critical factors for practices to development of the agile ERP model.
