Arash Shahin, Sahar Sadri, Roya Gazor



It seems that inappropriate application and implementation of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) can harm performance of organizations. For the ERP to be successful there is a necessity for a systematic training plan aligned with the organizational master plan. The model of Learning Requirements Planning (LRP) is developed for linking training with the implementation process of ERP. The aim of this article is to investigate and evaluate the application of LRP model in the ERP project of Esfahan Steel Company as the pioneer in the steel industry of Iran. This research is survey based.  The research population includes the employees involved in the implementation of ERP. The results imply that at the time of implementing the project, the required training has not been effective and since the accomplishment of the project, learning has not been continuous. Consequently, in the implementation of the ERP project of Esfahan Steel Company, learning has not been treated effectively.
