Origin: know + how
Know-how is a term for practical knowledge on how to accomplish something, as opposed to “know-what”, “know-why”, or “know-who”. Know-how is often tacit knowledge, which means that it is difficult to transfer to another person by means of writing it down or verbalising it. The opposite of tacit knowledge is explicit knowledge. In the context of industrial property, know-how is a component in the transfer of technology in national and international environments, co-existing with or separate from other IP rights such as patents, trademarks and copyright and is an economic asset.
