What do people mean when they say "delta" on the job?

I know they’re not referring to the delta in the options sense, since we don’t deal with options. I feel this is a very basic term, and I’m probably past the time when I can ask a colleague about this lol

I’ve also heard the term used in real estate - any difference in meaning between regular finance, real estate, and options?

I’ve always understood it to be mean, “the difference between”

We’re gonna win so much, you may even get tired of winning. And you’ll say, 'Please, please. It’s too much winning. We can’t take it anymore. Mr. President, it’s too much.' And I’ll say, 'No, it isn’t!' We have to keep winning!

“Change”, perhaps?

Please give us an example in context.
