ATD Learning Technologies
NOVEMBER 24, 2015
The reality is that many employees know more about how to pass a test and progress through training than they know how to internalize and access applicable knowledge.

Can organisation-wide social networks capture tacit knowledge?
The eLearning Nomad
MARCH 8, 2016
Most of what we do at work requires knowledge that can’t be captured into a 10 bullet checklist with clear do’s and don’ts.

The big challenge in any modern learning organisation is the sharing of this tacit knowledge. Tacit knowledge is not something that can be ‘captured’ and re-distributed. Sharing of tacit knowledge is done through solving problems together.
