    Theoretical Foundations Organizational Learning Information and Knowledge: Differences and Relations This section begins by establishing the difference and relationship between the terms information and knowledge, for the principle of intelligibility in this document and considering that as Organizational Learning particular, this relates to the construction, implementation and knowledge management in organizations. In many cases there is a tendency to understand, use and believe that access to much information is the same as access to knowledge. Perhaps one reason for this confusion has to do that for many authors the ability to create knowledge is related to a large extent, access to information and confused the boundary between both concepts. For its part, Dretske (1981) argues that the information can be considered in two ways: syntactically (by volume it has) and semantically (by meaning you own). The semantic aspect of information is more important for the construction of knowledge, because it focuses on the meaning expressed. In this way, information is considered, a flow of messages and knowledge is created precisely for this flow of information, anchored in the beliefs and commitment of its holder.

    This explanation emphasizes that knowledge is essentially related to human action, knowledge has been defined theoretically as true and justified beliefs acquired empirically. This is operationalized, to understand knowledge as a sequence, a continuum from data to information and knowledge thereof, which becomes with time and experience that grows up to become knowledge. For Nonaka and Takeuchi (1999), knowledge is similar to the information, other than her and are relational.

    To manage our time, it is imperative that we know how important a clear distinction (the task that leads us to achieve our objectives) of the Emergency (the task is conditioned by the time factor), and that focus all our energy and effort into developing Important tasks are not urgent yet, as this will allow us to perform them with greater confidence, and therefore less pressure, tension and stress, facilitating its implementation with a higher quality and preventing them from becoming well-urgent tasks (ie, important and urgent). Certainly, no one escapes, it is not possible to foresee, plan, or program the full (100%) of the tasks, as many appear to unforeseen and unexpected.

    However, it is very important that these are the exception and not the general trend that we assume that we are always acting as “putting out fires”, ie as “fire”, having to act on the important tasks that have become in Urgent and the consequent energy, tension and stress that would be created. Knowledge systematically and to establish our priorities right, in our daily tasks such as periodic, is critical to the success of our management. The use of any of the methods, successfully tested, which is already in the market (ABCDE, Pareto …) will help us greatly to achieve that function. The Art of Delegating will be no certainly one of our most important allies in our Time Management and much of our life. It is imperative to share the Rockefeller famously “Do not make yourself never what can be done by another.
