This paper contributes to theory building for successful Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) implementations with special focus on Business Process Reengineering (BPR). The method of stylized facts, usually used in macroeconomics, is applied on the subject. The theoretical background of the method will be provided and its application on the subject will be demonstrated. In this paper, it is verified that the method of stylized facts delivers valuable and relevant results for ERP implementation success. This includes recommendations for actions, the right use of BPR and the proper consideration and integration of critical success factors.
