Throughout history, and regardless of the technology of the day, a certain amount of knowledge has always been lost. Knowledge can be extracted from individuals, groups, documents, video & audio recordings, spreadsheets, images and graphics. CEN specializes in utilizing specific research methodologies to extract first hand knowledge from individuals and groups.
Tacit – something understood without being stated
Automatic – what we do (Clarke & Szmigin, 2000)
Intentional – what we intend to pass on (Clarke & Szmigin, 2000)
Individual – knowledge rests within the individual (Berman et. el, 2003)
Group – shared knowledge of a team (Berman et. el, 2003)
Implicit – something implied though not plainly expressed
Explicit – knowledge that is easily codified, stored, articulated and easily transmitted to others.
CHRONICLED (Archived) Knowledge
Chronicling is the process of ‘at best’ codifying or ‘at the very least’ archiving information and knowledge extracted from individuals (corporate CEO’s, sports coaches, key employees, etc) or groups (project teams, non-affiliated experts, consulting groups, etc). CEN’s core strength is chronicling tacit and implicit knowledge in such a way for future leaders and teams to utilize to their advantage.
Information is organized and can be archived or journalized for later retrieval; chronicled in print or digitally for current access as a resource; or processed through the Instruction Design model for various training scenarios
