In this paper I have tried to map some of existing Knowledge Management tools with Knowledge creation SECI model designed by Nonaka and Takeuchi (1995). In this Knowledge creation SECI model Knowledge follows a cycle in which tacit knowledge is ‘extracted’ to become explicit knowledge and explicit knowledge is‘re-internalized’ into tacit knowledge.
I have started with simple definition of Knowledge management followed by Nonaka and Takeuchi’s model generally known as SECI model. Steps of this model are Socialization, Externalization, Combination and Internalization. In between that I have also mentioned basic idea about tacit and explicit knowledge.
Finally mentioned a little details about some of Knowledge Management tools i.e. Brainstorming session, Storytelling, Community of Practice, Taxonomy, Social networks, Blog, Forum, Knowledge Portal, wiki, Knowledge Café, Appreciative inquiry, Reward & Recognition, Best Practice Transfer etc and how these tools are related to SECI model.
