Story telling as a tool for soft knowledge capture

No Tech tools such as story telling can be a good method for capturing soft knowledge of professionals. As we narrate our experiences in the form of stories, we share our soft knowledge too. This means coffee time chats and corridoor discussions could involve tremendous volume of soft knowledge relating to specific fields. The article in the link below is an useful one in this direction.


So, next time we're in similar situations let's be aware about the soft knowledge transactions.

About this blog

Knowledge in the tacit dimension includes skills, experiences and insights and are invisible objects. Senior professionals own vast repositories of soft knowledge which if documented and shared could transform the contours of Human Resource Development. Though there are severe constraints in the capture of these invisible knowledge assets, there have been some break throughs too. The Video approach put forward by the Rosetta Spacecraft team is worth mentioning here (http://www.emeraldinsight.com/journals.htm?articleid=1545638&show=html). Project debriefing is yet another useful methodology for this purpose (http://www.assoa.nt.edu.au/MATERIALS/ppd/debriefing.pdf). Personal experience with the production of teaching videos compels me to say that the video approach is a handy tool for this.
