Snippet: "Four Modes of Knowledge Conversion: The assumption that knowledge is created through conversion between tacit and explicit knowledge allows us to postulate four different “modes” of knowledge conversion: (1) from tacit knowledge to tacit knowledge, (2) from explicit knowledge to explicit knowledge, (3) from tacit knowledge to explicit knowledge, and (4) from explicit knowledge to tacit knowledge."

data: Organized information generally used as the basis for adjudication or decision. Commonly, organized information, collected for a specific purpose. (Black's 6th)
Collected information; known FACTS(Ballantine's 3rd)

knowledge: Acquaintance with FACTS or truth.
personal knowledge: Knowledge of the truth in regard to a particular FACT [i.e., data] or allegation, which is original, and does not depend on information or hearsay. (Black's 6th)
A person's direct knowledge of anything, as distinguished from that which he learns by hearsay.

A: NEVER ...

Data is an ELEMENT of Knowledge.
It is impossible for an ELEMENT of a thing to BE the thing itself.

Cheers ... Chris H
