3 Types of Knowledge Transfer Boundary

Transfer of knowledge can go through boundaries. There are three types of boundaries.

  • Syntactic boundary occurs when source and recipient do not share the common language.
  • Semantic boundary occurs when the sharing has surpassed the communicable language, but the context of understanding between the source and recipient is on different ground.
  • Pragmatic boundary occurs when pure communication cannot lead to understanding unless some actions are to be involved.

To overcome these boundaries, some of the individuals who play different roles, such as gatekeeper or liaison, could aid the transfer.​
