Organizational Learning & Knowledge Management LO23821

Replying to LO23690 --

Both OL and KM involve knowledge creation. According to Ikujiro Nonaka in
"The knowledge-creating company" (Harvard Business Review, Nov,Dec, 1991,
p.101), knowledge creation is a process of making tacit knowledge
explicit. According to the definition, (as a simplified example) if I
tell someone what I know (or write it down or store it electronically),
then I have created knowledge (if he/she reads it subsequently).

Do you agree with this defintion? Can you share your experience in
"knowledge creation"?
