The Wellspring of Ideas: Tacit Knowledge

The Wellspring of Ideas: Tacit Knowledge | Using the Information You Have | Scoop.it
Tacit knowledge has emerged as the “holy grail” of sorts, with many organizations (including the World Bank) seeking a way to capture and deliver it.  Tacit knowledge is a difficult concept, which I thought was worth exploring a bit.

"...creating new knowledge is not simply a matter of mechanistically processing objective information but that it depends on tapping the tacit and often highly subjective insights, intuitions, and ideals of employees."

Knowledge Management and Simplicity

Knowledge Management and Simplicity | Using the Information You Have | Scoop.it
How does Knowledge Management help in an increasingly complex world? It  allows people to simply structures through communication and collaboration.Avoid needless complexity by Robert Nunnally on  Flickr

Simplifying through collaboration is the topic  of a Ted talk by Yves Morieux, in which he gives us 6 rules to  simplify complexity (thanks to Roxana Bahrami for alerting me to this). Watch  the talk to get the context, but here are the 6 rules (with more explanation here)

Ensure people in the organisation full understand what others really  do.Look for cooperation - reinforce managers as integrators, by removing layers  so that managers are closer to the real work.Empower everybody to use their judgement and intelligence.Create tight feedback loops that expose people to the consequences of their  actions.Increase reciprocity, by removing the buffers that make us  self-sufficient.Reward those who cooperate and blame or sanction those who don't  cooperate.

Do these sound familiar? Rules 1,2,4,5 and 6 are all  components of Knowledge Management, and Knowledge Management is needed to support Rule 3.

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, July 7, 2014 10:39 AM

          One thing that distinguishes effective organizations from less effective ones is that capacity to consistently make good decisions.  It is not simply the fact of making decisions, but the fundamental soundness of those decisions.  This suggests that while deciding what to do is important; it is how or on what basis decisions are made that is critical.  

         The four elements of the Empowering Effectiveness OE model  provide a good starting point for decisions: How does a particular action enhance alignment, execution, adaptation or engagement?

A bit of a fluff piece, but best soundbite is:

"The characteristics of big data are really just a magnification of those that we've been dealing with for the past twenty years in knowledge management," Beyer says. "It's not an extra special circumstance apart from normal workflow, and shouldn't be isolated. Knowledge workers are going to have to get used to it."
