Words of Wisdom re: Business Rules Initiatives from the Sydney BBC Conference … See If You Agree

From Matthew Cooper’s presentation at the Sydney Building Business Capability (BBC) Conference – Sept. 10-11, 2012 …
  • “No progress will be made until you achieve a common business vocabulary. You just have to have it.”
  • “Vocabulary, facts, rules. You can’t do them one at a time. You have to do them together, iteratively.”
  • “Writing business rules helps you get your concept model right … and find out when it’s wrong.”
  • “It’s uncanny how business rules help you identify inconsistencies and problems in current or proposed practices so early-on. Massive benefit!”
  • “In our experience not more than perhaps 10% of project effort went to establishing a common vocabulary.”
