Terminology sections or documents are critical resources for implementing a standard. However, users tend to take them for granted as just being part of the standard. But did you know: • In what situation a word or phrase is selected to be defined as a term in the terminology document or section? • What science is behind the definition of a term? • How to find definitions of a term in various standards for free? • How to relate the meaning of a term to the meaning in common dictionaries? • The word or phrase will be not be adopted as a term if the intended meaning of the word or phrase is found in a dictionary? • If not, you are not alone. New terms are not adopted easily in standards. It's a profound process - dull to some - yet largely unknown to people.

Techniques & Steps to Help Business’s Frame Vision, Cascade Objectives, Respond to Escalations & Realise Benefit Flows

Increasingly descriptions of the PM role and PMO responsibilities emphasis projects are investments and participants must support all things benefits.

To do this, we need competencies – knowledge & behaviours we practice to develop skills.
