Tacit and explicit knowledge

Tacit and explicit knowledge

Although tacit knowledge is something cannot be described, but I think someone somehow has to know and identify it in order to form the transaction from tacit to explicit. For example, if a manager observed a kind of activity he preferred from a particular employee. Firstly, he may have a standard in his mind, and that activity has meet his standard or even above it, or different and better compare his idea. So I think tacit knowledge sometimes come natural and randomly but sometimes can be identified if someone is deliberately looking for it.

I think tacit knowledge influenced by culture, where they always do things in such way from where they grow up, never realised and never thought why. But when you become internationalized and work with people from different background is tacit knowledge may be identifies. I think most activities individual does, is influenced by their tacit knowledge and this makes everyone different from each other.

Furthermore, tacit knowledge also can be commonly cause and special cause. It may happen just accidentally which made it difficult to catch and access. Tacit knowledge is generally more difficult to identify and understand compare to explicit knowledge. Sometimes may be just by luck sometimes can be tacit knowledge.
