Although training is one of the most cited critical success factors in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Systems implementations, few empirical studies have attempted to examine the characteristics of management of the training process within ERP implementation projects. Based on data gathered from a sample of 158 respondents across four stakeholder groups involved in ERP implementation projects, and using a mixed method design, we have assembled a derived set of training best practices. Results suggest that the categorized list of ERP training best practices can be used to better understand training activities in ERP implementation projects. Furthermore, the results reveal that company size and location have an impact on training best practices relevance. This empirical study also highlights the need to investigate the role of informal workplace trainers in ERP training activities.
