I thought you might be interested in this picture of rules posted on the outside of the Landhaus (legislative building) in Graz, Austria, where I recently presented an academic paper on the Date-Time Vocabulary. The plaque was posted in posted in 1588 by Archduke Charles of Austria. Among other rules:
You must not draw your sword or your dagger in the building.
The sign itself is called “der Rumortafel”, apparently because it prohibits “Rumors and striking”.
“You did a wonderful job!! The material was organized and valuable.”

“I found the course interesting and will be helpful.
I like the pragmatic reality you discuss, while a rule tool would be great, recognizing many people will use Word/Excel to capture them helps. We can’t jump from crazy to perfect in one leap!
Use of the polls is also great. Helps see how everyone else is doing (we are not alone), and helps us think about our current state.”

“Sessions flow together well and build upon the concepts for the series which makes the learning easy and better retention.
The instructor is knowledgeable and very attentive to the audience given the range of attendees skill and knowledge of the subject at hand. I enjoy her training sessions.”

“A great class that explains the importance of business rules in today’s work place.”

“We actively use the BRS business-side techniques and train our business analysts in the approach. The techniques bring clarity between our BAs & customers, plus more robust requirements for our development teams. We’ve seen tremendous value.”
Jeanine Bradley – Railinc
“Instructors were very knowledgeable and could clearly explain concepts and convey importance of strategy and architecture.
It was a more comprehensive, holistic approach to the subject than other training. Emphasis on understanding the business prior to technology considerations was reassuring to business stakeholders.”
