Making Knowledge Actionable

We enable your novices to perform like experts

10,000 people per day reach retirement age…when they retire, does what they know and what they do walk out the door? 
KNOWLEDGE is like a machine or engine in our heads that enables us to perform skillfully, make decisions, and solve problems. And organizations have two types of knowledge as assets – explicit and tacit knowledge.
EXPLICIT knowledge is all the information contained in manuals, databases, the Internet – the knowledge captured in those documents and programs.
TACIT knowledge is the expertise that exists in the skills and experience of experts – what they can’t relay well without special methods to express and impart that knowledge to others.
“If capital is what produces a stream of income, then it follows that knowledge is a form of the new capital.… A strong argument can be made that information capital can be more critical to the future of the American economy than money capital.”
Walter Wriston, former CEO of Citicorp
