Tacit Knowledge Guidance


Addressing tacit knowledge is critical for effective organizational learning. Although tacit knowledge can be challenging to identify and manage, creating processes and practices that facilitate its capture and transfer can allow organizations to create efficiencies and improve their learning practice. This document provides guidance on methods for identifying, capturing, and transferring tacit knowledge based on experiences from the USAID-funded Knowledge-Driven Microenterprise Development (KDMD) project.

This brief was written to support USAID and partners with Collaborating, Learning, and Adapting (CLA) throughout the Program Cycle. It utilizes experience from the KDMD project to share good practices, how-tos, and lessons learned about concepts and activities related to knowledge management and learning.
