Difference between Tacit and Explicit Knowledge  March 22, 2016 – 09:31 am

Someone reached out to me on what is the difference between Explicit and Tacit knowledge and I thought I would pen down the difference here too!


Tacit knowledge is what people carry in their minds and we find it difficult to access. There are times we are not ourselves aware of the the knowledge we possess and also how valuable it can turn out to be if shared with others. The transfer of tacit knowledge mainly happens through personal contact and trust but this is considered to be very valuable. Many times this is not shared, primarily because we are unable to communicate all we know. This knowledge is also a very valuable input when it comes to innovations.
Explicit knowledge on the other hand, is what is documented or codifies and can be transferred easily to others. The processes, procedures, journals, manuals, drawings or any such artifacts come under Explicit knowledge. This is a form whereby human knowledge is externalized.

Good Day!

Enron has been very aggressive in its accounting--most notably the Raptor transactions and the Condor vehic...talized with Enron stock.' . . . . . 'No, no, no, you must have it all wrong, it can't be that, that's just too bad, too fraudulent, surely AA & Co. wouldn't let them get away with that?' 'Go back to the drawing board, it's got to be something else. But find it!' . . . . . 'Hey, just in case you might be right, try and find some insiders or 'redeployed' former employees to validate your theory.'
