Meaning and definition of knowing-doing gap :


Knowing-Doing Gap: Knowledge is of little use unless we do something with it. According to Stanford professors, Jeffrey Pfeffer and Robert Sutton, the gap between knowing and doing is more important than the gap between ignorance and knowing. Today, knowledge is easily available. There are knowledge brokers like consulting firms who specialize in collecting knowledge about management practices, storing it and then transferring the information to those who need it. Better ways of doing things cannot remain secret for long. In most cases, however, the knowledge that is successfully transferred through seminars, training programs and consulting, is not implemented. Talking dominates action in many companies. It is the companies which can bridge the knowing-doing gap that emerge winners in the market place.
