ITIL uses the term "workaround" for what many organizations refer to as a "temporary fix".

Hello :) I'd say that a temporary fix sounds more like something that needs a definitive solution in a short time frame, while a workaround seems more like something that will keep working even without going back and fixing the issue in the "correct" way so that it does not arise anymore.
But that's just from my understanding of both things.
