knowledge management, the poster is on very thin ice. But from the post
itself, we don't know that.
Point 1: What does this audience need to know, and at what level? If all

map, depending on who is doing the defining. We have no context for a
Point 3: There actually *is* a book called _The Complete Idiot's Guide to
Knowledge Management_. I saw it at Barnes and Noble last time this thread
came around. Go figure. I did not pick it up, just noticed it. So, instead
of asking the list, "Please tell me everything I need to know to give a
seminar on knowledge management," [various fulminations suppressed], get
