Abstract: A study of 27 ERP systems in the Queensland Government revealed 41 issues clustered into seven major issue categories. Two of these categories described intra- and inter-organisational knowledge-related issues. This paper describes and discusses the intra-organisational knowledge issues arising from this research. These intra-organisational issues include insufficient knowledge in the user base, ineffective staff and knowledge retention strategies, inadequate training method and management, inadequate helpdesk knowledge resources, and finally, under-resourced helpdesk. When barriers arise in knowledge flows from sources such as implementation partner staff, training materials, trainers, and help desk staff, issues such as those reported in this paper arise in the ERP lifecycle.
