Knowledge, according to Krogh, Ichijo and Nonaka [1] is justified true belief as the truthfulness of one beliefs is based on observation of the world and that is shaped by one’s sensibility, one’s own unique viewpoint and experience. Thus, when knowledge is created, it makes sense out of a new situation by holding to the justified belief one earlier acquired and obligated. Krogh, Ichijo and Nonaka [1] further clarifies that; “Under this definition, knowledge is a construction of reality rather than something that is true in any abstract or universal way” (p.15) Knowledge originates from processed data which humans acquired and is used in making decisions [2]. It is recognised as an asset and to be systematically managed and stored thus making Knowledge Management systems as knowledge repository a necessity. In an organisation, knowledge basically originates from and is applied by knowledge workers. This vast knowledge that exists within an organisation requires proper management so that it can be utilised [2]. In an organisation, tacit knowledge rests on individuals and highly personal in nature and thus shapes individual judgement and actions.
