Recording Tacit Knowledge
Samuell Yew, Project Manager, Malaysia, Member

A skill matrix is useful for recording employees knowledge bank on subject matters. When required, it can be like a library to seek out an "expert" on a subject within the organization. This is particularly important when an employee leaves the company. The management must know how much (if measurable) or which area of knowledge is exiting with the departure of that employee. Recording explicit knowledge is difficult enough, but how to keep a currrent record of tacit knowledge when the employees themselves are not consciously aware of their possession of this valuable asset?

Recording Tacit Knowledge is Impossible
Aarnoudse, Consultant, Netherlands, Member

Dear samuell. You are questioning how to record tacit knowledge, but that is impossible in itself. As soon as it is recordable it is explicit knowledge. I think only the result of tacit knowledge is recordable. Someone is the best baker in town. Till 90% he can tell you how he bakes his bread. The last 10% you learn by working together with him in his bakery. He is doing it and you are observing and copying and reflecting. And than 5 of this 10% once more becomes explicit knowledge. It is trough modeling, observation and reflection that tacit knowledge contributes to knowledge creation.
