Practice and Knowledge Management

  • Larry Prusak
Part of the Economics of Science, Technology and Innovation book series (ESTI, volume 24)


In this chapter, I will discuss the word `practice’ in the context of knowledge and knowledge management partially. This will allow us to focus both on tacit and explicit knowledge. But what is a practice? To approach this question, I would like to discuss eight heuristics that carry with them assumptions that are fairly well accepted among knowledge practitioners regarding notions of `understanding’.
