    Abstract

    This paper introduces a knowledge model in which the types of knowledge are formed according to the nature of knowledge. There are two roots to our model: the first concentrates on a review and extension of the typologies of Polanyi and Ryle and adds new knowledge types; the second concentrates on a review of the intuition literature reformulating a range of different perspec-tives so as provide new insights. Subsequently we synthesize the extended typologies with our intuition findings into a new knowledge model which includes intuition as a knowledge type. This model distinguishes three types of knowledge, the facts, the skills, and the intuition; all three having focal and subsidiary parts. Moreover it is complete (i.e. it accounts for all kinds of knowledge), has great explanatory strength, and is easy to use. Thus we expect it to be useful for both researchers and educators in the field of knowledge management.
