Tacit knowledge is the knowing of things without knowing how you know; explicit knowledge is the knowing of things that you can explain.

In Project Management, Tacit Knowledge is the knowledge your co-worker knows, but isn't codified or written down; while Explicit Knowledge deals with knowledge that is written down and structured. For example, your co-worker knows how to fix Word when it chokes on an important document; but she is the only one. This is the Tacit Knowledge that Project Management tries to root out and codify. Once that knowledge is written down and saved somewhere it becomes explicit.
