I found really interesting this particular concept, and more because it is not making reference just to the explicit form of knowledge, it is also related to the tacit knowledge even when for some managers this last is not properly managed and controlled by the organisation.
I was relating this concept to my previous experience and the avoidance of co workers, employees and managers to share the knowledge that they possess. I know that some time ago in other lectures we have discussed about the people that thinks that knowledge is their own competitive advantage over the other employees and that if they want to succed in their own careers they have to keep it and not share it.
So today when I was reading about the storage of knowledge and organisational knowledge they mentioned that the tacit knowledge in the head of one "important" or in better words experienced employee is part of the competitive advantage of the organisation... however it doesnt generate more knowledge? how can it be a competitive advantage if it doesnt generate more knowledge and if this is the case it means that in the short term it can become obsolete?
