Note 1 (See Ref** col. above): These reference letters are used in the Glossaries to show when the term appears in related Glossaries. This indicates the extent of application of the term in question.

Note 2: The GoVernance collection of terms is too small to be processed as a separate Glossary, hence its incorporation with the PortFolio Glossary. Of course, it may grow into a separate glossary in the future.

Note 3: For a detailed explanation of our research and why we have chosen the Project Domain divisions and Industry/Product Sector groupings shown, please refer to the following papers:
     1. What's new in Glossary v6.1 published June 2017, and
     2. The Challenge for the Wideman Glossary 6.1 Update published July 2017.
