The concept of Ba

Is it not amazing that many gurus in the business world are from Japan. We sure do have a lot to learn from them and how they do their thing. Kitaro Nishida developed this concept of 'Ba'. 'Ba' is a space which can be physical such as an office, room or virtual such as the internet where knowledge can be created or shared. More used as a knowledge creation center which recognizes the self as part of it. Knowledge is in the 'ba' and one must acquire it from the 'ba' so as to make sense of it. If you seperate knowledge from the 'ba', then it becomes information which can then be shared and disseminated to others. It was a totally new concept for me when I found it. It makes sense to make sure that your organization is a condusive 'ba' so that knowledge can be continuously created and shared so that the organization can transform to be a learning organization and consequently, an excellent organization.
