Abstract

Given that Articulate Knowledge has long been codified and substantiated for daily usage, the role of articulable Tacit knowledge needs to be examined in greater detail with an emphasis on its usage in the public sector. What needs to be born in mind however is that the codification of Tacit Knowledge is a reality and that eventually almost all Tacit Knowledge becomes so. This process is not necessarily immediate but takes place in a stepwise format passing through partial to full codification. The authors also argue that codification is more prevalent today due to the need for organisations to be more accountable. Accountability requires accurate reporting and quantitative interpretations of information which in turn demand codified knowledge, not tacit ambiguities.
