Practical techniques that matter: Managing business rules
Friday, May 12, 2023
Business rules represent institutional knowledge and provide the structure to think through content effectively. Compared to many other formal instruments of business analysis, business rules that are expressed in structured natural language offer unrivaled user-friendliness for a non-technical audience. At the same time, implementation of the business rules methodology often results in a large number of business rules that can be challenging to work with and reference.
This presentation will focus on creative application of various pragmatic approaches for managing business rules that were successfully tested and implemented in immunization information systems (IIS) projects at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Some examples of these approaches include a hierarchical organization of business rules, grouping rules along phases and steps of process models, elements of concept models, and other business analysis models.
