Business Rule Forum Keynote – Wednesday, November 2, 2011 – 9:00 AM
I am giving a keynote next week called Business Analysis with Business Rules: See the Elephant!
at the Building Business Capability
(BBC2011) event in Florida (Nov 2, 9am Eastern). If you’re there, I hope you’ll come. If not, our new book, Building Business Solutions: Business Analysis with Business Rules
explains the ‘elephant’ part in the Preface. See http://www.brsolutions.com/b_building_business_solutions.php
. Here are some clues …
Why doesn’t every organization in the world do business rules? Doesn’t every organization have them? A great many of the ideas and tools have been around for years, all tried-and-proven. What’s the problem?
It’s not that there aren’t successes – there are, lots of them. It’s not that successful techniques haven’t been written up and talked about for years – they have. You could argue that many people who think they understand business rules, actually don’t. There’s some truth to that – but consensus among experts has existed for years.
The real reason is simply that the problem is so pervasive. It’s everywhere, like air, making it hard to see. Exciting things happen though once you stand back and take a look at the big picture.
