Knowledge creation and transfer underpin organizational knowledge management (KM) and sharing. KM uses an organization’s knowledge to achieve its mission. Many KM projects aim to make tacit or implicit knowledge explicit and accessible, which is difficult, controversial, and fraught with management issues. This article argues that knowledge management in many disciplines requires an understanding of knowledge’s dynamic nature.
- Knowledge is the awareness of what a person has learned through study, reasoning, experience, or association, as well as other methods of education.
- Knowledge is based on sensory experience, physical activity, and mindful cognition, in addition to mental activity.
- Creating and sustaining trusting work environments may be the most effective way to ensure the sharing of knowledge.
