The purpose of this paper is to present the inner triple helix dynamics of the organizational knowledge. This is a new perspective of the classical view of tacit knowledge – explicit knowledge dyad of the organizational knowledge promoted by Nonaka and his co-workers. The new perspective is based on the metaphor that organizational knowledge is a field rather than a stock, or stocks and flows. It is a complex metaphor using the thermodynamics principles. The organizational knowledge is composed of three different fields: cognitive knowledge, emotional knowledge and spiritual knowledge. These fields are nonuniform, nonhomogeneous and they interact in a dynamic way. Cognitive field contains knowledge about what is, emotional field contains knowledge about how we feel, and the spiritual field contains knowledge about people’s aspirations and life values. This new perspective opens a new opportunity in understanding the challenges for the 21st century management.
