A List of Different Types of Knowledge
- "Acquired Knowledge". This can be thought of as knowledge accrued from previous experiences, training, learning, even conversations with others.
- "Unique Knowledge". This is knowledge that comes about from spotting connections between pieces of information or seeing something that fits into a previous line of acquired knowledge that makes the knowledge worker view the knowledge in a new way.
- "Creative Knowledge". This is where someone takes their acquired knowledge and unique knowledge bases and uses them, not to think outside the box, but to think inspirationally.
- DIRECT KNOWLEDGE - This is firsthand experience with knowledge recieved.
- INDIRECT KNOWLEDGE - This is knowledge aquired by processing information.
- INTUITIVE KNOWLEDGE - This is knowledge stored in the memory of all individuals.
- PROCEDURAL KNOWLEDGE - This is instructiuonal based process to how to something.
- QUESTIONS - This is knowledge in search of knowldge.
- DECISIONS - This is made up of a combination of the procedural knowledge and questions.
- INFORMATION - This is the communication of other knowledge.
- FIXED - This is knowledge that comes from information in books
- DYNAMIC - This is knowledge that is moving and changes with time like the position of the sun.
- TRUE or FALSE - This is a concept of true and false knowledge can act as a preamble to other types of knowledge.
- CONTRADICTION - this is knowledge used to change the state of some other knowledge from True to False or from False to True.
- PREDICTION - This is knowledge of the future developed from processing current knowledge.
- NONSENSE - This is knowledge that results from informationpurposely or inadvertently scrambled so that it confuses the brain.
- NO KNOWLEDGE or THE END - This is the empty-set of knowledge where no knowledge exists.
Explicit knowledge can be recorded as words, numbers, mathematical and scientific formulae and codes. Explicit knowledge can also be articulated and strored in various media's, and can be easily transfered from individual to individuals. A good example that i have come across for explicit knowledge is Wikipedia as it a world wide spread knowldge transfer of informations.

After my research i have found 7 steps to help implement knowledge management and though i would share my findings.
- Identifing the business problem - this requires an identification of the business problems that are to be solved.
- Preparing for change - This involves the cultural changes in the way people precieve the knowledge that is developed.
- Creating teams - Having strong team leaders that have cross departmental expertise.
- Having knowledge audits - this helps organise the gained knowledge by creating catergories that reflet on the operations carried out by the individuals and the organisation.
- Key features - enhancing the IT infrastructure and the maybe the security can help solve the key problems faced by the company.
- Creating building blocks for knowledge managment - each phase that is being implemented addresses a specific part of the solutions, like laying the foundation for the next phase to provide benefits and provides a measurable ROI
- Linking knowledge to people

Today we had a workshop during which the importance of safety and security was discussed. Various industrial examples where shown. the maximumum reason of accidents or mishaps happening is because of people not taking in or gathering enough information of or about the task in hand.
But many times even when the information is there people tend to overlook the safety and security aspect. In trying to get things done fast many safety asspects are ignored, which coud lead to fatal accidents. Most of the times these people will say that the were trying to benifit the company by doing the the work fast. But then by passing safety procedures can never be in the benifit of anyone. I would always discourage people to save a little time or a little resources by passing safety procedures and putting themselves and others in danger.
