One of the things I’m having to get use to in my new job, is all the acronyms, there are hundreds of them, all three letters long, and all making virtually no sense when you here them for the first time.

I’m starting to know my OSD from my ICR now, and I’ve realised just who TDAs are. It’s still a bit confusing as to who works for LCC or LDL, but most of the time that doesn’t matter as long as you get UAT done, and try to avoid going to CAB at all costs.

OSD: Outline Solution Document
ICR: Internal Change Request
TDA: Technical Desing Architect
LCC: Liverpool City Council
LDL: Liverpool Direct
UAT: User Acceptance Testing
CAB: Change Board or the meeting from hell
