Knowledge Creation - Knowledge Management View Edit

Knowledge can be divided in both tacit knowledge, which involves senses, skills and intuition, and explicit knowledge, which is formulated and/or captured.

The knowledge creation process involves 5 steps:

  • Sharing tacit knowledge
  • Creating concepts
  • Justifying concepts
  • Building a prototype
  • Cross-leveling knowledge

Knowledge Creation - Anti-Knowledge View Edit

Terms like genius, creativity, innovation, creative problem solving, and knowledge creation have been historically studied and represented as loosely related topics. When appropriately understood, all of these terms can be encapsulated into a single cycle of knowledge and anti-knowledge as follows:

1. Definition/Solution/Structure (Knowledge Context)

2. Question/Problem

3. Logical Operation (connects/structures/defines)

4. Result: Advanced Definition/Solution/Structure

In the anti-knowledge view of knowledge creation, all knowledge is structure and anything that is known can be expressed. According to this view, tacit knowledge is not knowledge at all, but collective questions that need to be assimilated into knowledge in order to be expressed. Explicit knowledge then, is knowledge storage which is a distinct knowledge interaction.

In this view four primary pillars contribute to intellectual advance in any society. These are:

  • Knowledge structure – Knowledge itself. Knowledge is the structure of symbols and/or semantics chosen by a society.
  • Knowledge interactions – The collective set of knowledge working tools/roles like knowledge creation or learning.
  • Language – The chosen mechanism for knowledge structure transport.
  • Anti-knowledge – The perceivable realm of questions in a cumulative sense. The unknown.

These four pillars work together cooperatively to advance society. The specific knowledge creation interaction occurs at the line between knowledge structure and anti-knowledge, which is the cutting edge.
