This paper describes the differences between the theoretical world of ERP researchers and the practical world of ERP consultants. A survey was held among 129 ERP consultants to explore their opinion and experience with regard to a number of subjects that have been researched in many papers, such as the use of ERP implementation methods, ERP phase models, Critical Success Factors (CSF's), and Critical Failure Factors (CFF's). A central question was to investigate the consultants' use of scientific research in relation to their preferred source of information on ERP implementations. The results of the survey show that ERP consultants mainly use implementation methods that are developed by ERP vendors.
