The CPRE Glossary

6 1

Your pocket guide for a consistent understanding

IREB offers two glossaries. The 'CPRE Glossary contains the most important terms in requirements engineering for all CPRE modules and levels. The RE@Agile Glossary* complements the CPRE Glossary with terms for Requirements Engineering in the agile environment.

In addition to preparing for a CPRE exam, both glossaries also help to achieve a consistent understanding and use of terms in everyday work. This is crucial in order to communicate smoothly and unambiguously within the team, across projects, and with international partners - regardless of whether in an agile or traditional environment.

The glossaries are available in the following languages:

CPRE Glossary

RE@Agile Glossary

The definitions of terms in the glossaries are deliberately in English only, in order to exclude any vagueness or scope for interpretation that may result from translations.

The CPRE Glossary as Online Glossary

The CPRE Online Glossary offers a faster way to find definitions and translations.
The use is free of charge and possible without registration on this website.
