Knowledge Creation by Practitioners and Designers: From Tacit to Explicit

Dr. Majid Dadgar

Abstract

Creating and using knowledge in designing and managing products provide opportunities to develop creative products and competitive advantage. This book chapter investigates knowledge creation from tacit to explicit and discusses how designers and practitioners employ their skills and develop their knowledge. This chapter attempts to uncover the underlying structure of knowledge that is constructed, re-constructed, and exchanged in designing new innovative products. The chapter discusses how tacit knowledge becomes explicit knowledge through the reflection in action and prior experiences. A unified conceptual model is proposed to consolidate different views of knowledge creation.
