Abstract: We associate with an effective action of a compact connected Lie group as a pathwise connected space $ X$ a split action of a quotient group $ G/K$ on the quotient space $ X/K$. One application of the main theorem states that if $ X$ is a compact oriented manifold whose principal cohomology class is a cup product of one-dimensional classes then the action of $ G$ on $ X$ splits. We prove this in the differentiate case; the topological case has since been dealt with by Schultz.
