Although sometimes overlooked, Knowledge Management can be a key foundation to Knowledge Transfer. Some key ideas in Knowledge Management include measuring and utilizing “Tacit Knowledge”. Other interesting strategies include knowing when to use a “Tacit Knowledge” strategy vs a “Codified Knowledge” strategy. Even more interesting, there is now a growing literature on “Knowledge Sharing” mechanisms. Knowledge Management should be considered a starting place in understanding the foundations of any Knowledge Transfer effort. We need to identify the various ways in which knowledge is measured from the KM paradigm so that it can be used for Knowledge Transfer.
