How do you convert tacit to explicit knowledge?

Tacit knowledge is based on experience and observation. On the other hand, explicit knowledge can be clearly communicated to others, it can be written down, it can be learned. So if we observ time after time, over again, the tacit knowledge can create an explicit one. Someone needs to have a clear vision to see the line between all the observations. Tacit knowledge can be transformed by using database, wikis, blogs, forums which transforms the knowledge in an electronic form. It is important to integrate tacit and explicit knowledge in order to make better decisions and appropriate actions.

Lack of KM

I believe that organisations might have the following impacts in case of a lack of knowledge management on the decision making process:

- due to the lack of communication, there can be a delay in decision making process that can be resulted in higher costs or longer production

- the employees might make wrong decisions because of the lack of KM, lack of training or skills

- employees might have difficulty in using company software or database which can be resulted in wrong documentation, error, costs, delays ect.

- barriers in transforming tacit knowledge to explicit

- lack of knowledge sharing --> no innovation --> lack of improvement --> diminished organisational performance

- lack of business purposes, mission and vision

- poor planning

- inadequate use of the resources

- lack of accountability

- resistance of change - people will stuck in the same situation, no development

- lack of prioritisation

- inadequate budgeting and cost expectations

- lack of leadership

- lack of awareness

and so on...
