Glossary (17)

The goal of a glossary is to have a common vocabulary between all project participants. This facilitates communication with the stakeholders and prevents misunderstandings due to missing, unclear, or ambiguous definitions. The glossary is created and enhanced through discussions with stakeholders and business experts in the respective domain, and research in other sources such as internal documentation and literature.

Rule of thumb: If you do not know the domain, you underestimate its complexity.
