- Data is bits of content in either text or numerical format. On itself, data has no meaning. Information is data that is collected to allow comparison, grouping, and classifying which enables the content viewer to decide what to do with the data group. Knowledge is using the information and placing context around it, making it actionable.
- The Tacit Mode
- Tacit knowledge is the knowledge that is not documented. It is transferred silently through behaviours and experience.
- The Explicit Mode
- Explicit knowledge is more straightforward to identify and document. It is clearly communicated, written down, transferred, stored and retrieved.
