ERP implementation: a knowledge integration challenge for the project team
journal contributionposted on 2023-06-08, 18:48 authored by Susan Newell, Jimmy Huang, Carole Tansley
In this paper, we explore the knowledge integration challenges that face any large-scale IT implementation project team. We identify how knowledge integration is dependent on social networking processes. We provide evidence from the contrasting experiences of two project teams in two different case companies that were each involved in the design and implementation of an ERP system to explore these issues of knowledge integration. From the case comparisons, we identify differences between the two projects in relation to the ways that they were managed and organized. These differences in management and organization had a major impact on the social networking activities of the project members during the implementation process. These differences help to explain the different approaches to knowledge integration adopted and the ability of the project teams to identify opportunities for organizational transformation.
