van den Berg, Herman Anthony
MetadataShow full item record
The author proposes that for management purposes organizational knowledge, as the paramount input to all production processes, be considered in three separate classifications, tacit, codified, and encapsulated. While the bulk of previous knowledge management theory has generally focused on tacit and codified or explicit knowledge, this paper contributes to the theory by drawing attention to the often under investigated third classification, encapsulated knowledge.
