Consideration of the nature of expertise is inherent in expert systems development efforts. A number of assumptions regarding expertise are often made which can be problematic, particularly in management domains. This paper identifies a pre-knowledge acquisition activity that can be performed in order to address these assumptions. This activity is centered around the psychological concept of tacit knowledge. The paper outlines how the tacit knowledge methodology is being used to define and delineate expertise in the domain of entrepreneurship.
