Definition of Certification in glossary

"Definition of Certification in glossary states 'The term Certification is also used to mean awarding a certificate to verify that a person has achieved a qualification.' This is incorrect; a certificate is awarded to serve as evidence that a person has achieved a qualification. Someone other than the awarding authority would use it to verify the qualification of the individual. This is an important distinction."

Marginal costing definition

Marginal costing is defined in the glossary as "The Cost of continuing to provide the IT Service. Marginal Cost does not include investment already made, for example the cost of developing new software and delivering training."

In accountancy terms the marginal cost is typically defined as, for the sake of simplicity, "the cost of doing one more thing (unit of work/activity)", for example how much does it cost to extend service hours by one hour.

The definition as given sounds more like standard costing ( which isn't in the glossary )

No ... Manager roles defined in glossary
