Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is an enterprise that incorporates and monitors all company operations and procedures across the whole organisation through an extensive information system. ERP vendors are now concentrating more on SMEs because of the near saturation of large enterprises’ ERP adoptions. More SMEs are implementing ERP systems because of globalisation, alliances, value networks, and the widespread flow of knowledge through and within SMEs at present. This study was focused on 80 leading Libyan business organisations catering to local and international trade, manufacturing, trade, banking and hotel services. The risks of adoption relate to the fact that small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have limited capital and unique features.
