Risky Words

Taking a break from the book review to post something small but still significant.

Clarity is a very useful tool to manage risk. If something isn’t clear, we’re at risk of getting something wrong. Many times your best risk management tools are your own ears. Nuance in language can be fun when you're flirting with someone at a bar, tossing out double-entendres but when preciseness or clarity is valued, like in requirements specifications, nuance can be a killer.
