Abstract:Organizational knowledge varies from explicit possessions to more tacit and sticky actions. As such, we argue that the entwined nature of tacit and explicit knowledge, the embodied and activity-based dimension of knowledge, as well as the characteristic of knowledge as possession, fit within an agential realist concept of phenomena, entanglement and -˜cuts’. We first validate the framework across a qualitative case study within an aerospace manufacturing context. Our findings also provide insights on the nature/dynamics of novice to expert level knowledge. The implications on knowledge management are briefly discussed.
