Single Source of Truth (SSoT)
A single source of truth (SSoT) is an often overused and sometimes misunderstood term to describe a single, reliable and accurate source of information that is used as a reference within an organization.
A SSoT does not live in a single form: it can range from an org chart, which depicts the reporting structure of an organization, to a product roadmap, which acts as a transparent statement of what will and will not be prioritized for build. What they all have in common is that they all serve as the undisputed reference for the team.
