  • The poet T.S. Eliot was the first to mention the "DIKW hierarchy" without even calling it by that name. In 1934 Eliot wrote in "The Rock"[5]:
    Where is the Life we have lost in living?
    Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
    Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?

    Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs – on its side

    DIKW (See Wikipedia)
    Data-Information-Knowledge-Wisdom
    One variation
    DIKS: Data-Information-Knowledge-Strategy
    Data
    Facts, measurements
    is analyzed and/or connected to provide
    Information
    Facts, intelligence
    when acted upon becomes
    Knowledge
    A range of contextual information and experiences
    when reflected upon or analyzed becomes
    Wisdom
    Enables smart decisions
    Explicit KM
    DIKW are codified: recorded in text, audio, video, computer file or another capture method and systematically arranged
    When knowledge and wisdom are codified they become information
    Tacit KM
    DIKW are implicit – assumed, understood; internal – experiential, personal
    A person can combine new data with past training to internally generate knowledge
    People-to-people interactions, such as sharing, learning, and mentoring
