This study is intended to identify critical success factors(CSF) of real-time enterprises(RTE) by using a policy leverage method of system dynamics. Since RTE is a new theoretical system that unifies existing theories or concepts in business management and information technology, it is not proper to employee a traditional statistical method. To obtain our research goal, causal maps of system dynamics are employed to abstract and arrange RTE information from previous studies. By using the commonness of policy leverage and critical success factors, CSFs for the RTE are deduced by substituting the leverage points on causal maps with necessary success factors to solve the problems. Since this is a new approach to identify success factors. it has some restrictions. Unlike the statistical methods, this approach explains only the directions of causalities and correlations. For the future research, a simulation tool of system dynamics can be employed to discover how each CSF is correlated to the successful implementation of RTE.
