The purpose of the "Tacit Knowledge Transfer Analysis" project is to explore various forms of tacit knowledge transfer when making business decisions while using rules of thumb.
A rule of thumb is defined as "A principle with broad application that is not intended to be strictly accurate or reliable for every situation."
Tacit knowledge transfer is identified in this project through an analysis of rules of thumb that
are applied during the process of making decisions and action plans in response to a wide range
of business scenarios.
