MOTIVATION is the cause of the action, i.e. the reason that gives purpose and direction to behavior.
BUFFER is anything that stands between two other things. For example, an inventory buffer would be additional inventory over and above committed or planned inventory. The inventory buffer will act as an inventory reserve to ensure that sufficient inventory is available when and if required, i.e., the buffer inventory stands between committed inventory and out-of-stock status.
EXTERNAL is from or between other countries, e.g. external commerce; or, happening, arising or located outside or beyond a company, e.g. external influences.
