There are three clearly different things involved here …
- The process of murder transforms a live person into a dead person by killing them.
- The concept of murder is defined as the act of killing someone.
- The rule about murder is that there shouldn’t be any of them.
The first is about doing
; the second is about knowing
; the third is about prohibiting
. Three very different things. So it should be in business analysis and analysis of business rules.
