With the emergence of the evolutionary approach, tacit knowledge gained greater significance as a new internal resource of competitiveness of companies. This paper, through the research undertaken on industrial SME in Algeria, attempts to highlight the continuous loss of knowledge capital. Thus, it exposes the three elements on which tacit knowledge has been developed: professional experience, learning through practice and routines. It also suggests the need for adopting a new model of growth likely to exploit remaining tacit knowledge accumulated over the last years to adapt with the oil revenue issues in which the Algerian industrial SME is encrusted.

Keywords: Algerian Industrial SME, Tacit Knowledge, Professional Experience, Learning Through Practice, Routines
