The subject of the empirical research has been to examine the validity of the comments in the ERP literature regarding successful implementation of ERP projects and human resource management practices. The analysis of the research results showed that HR practices differ in the case of the successful and unsuccessful ERP implementations and their significance changes across the project life cycle stages.
