    In her own words: While I was a KM consultant, McGill recruited me to introduce KM. This was daunting as the field is so diverse. I had the opportunity to demystify KM as well as to link theory and practice by writing my text.

I see KM on the same shelf as quality assurance and ethics – ubiquitous!
