Business Knowledge Engineering

Presented by: Ronald G. Ross

theme_ttb

It’s a simple truism that today’s world turns on knowledge. To enable meaningful business transformation we must learn to engineer and reuse that knowledge.

We don’t do that very well today. Professionals re-invent, re-specify and re-design operational business knowledge essentially from scratch on each new project. We spend little or no time thinking about how to re-use it, or how to leverage it to reduce the start-up cost and risk of other projects. We pay a huge downstream price in servicing legacy. Nothing agile about that whatsoever.

We should step back and ask ourselves some hard questions. What's really needed to:

  • Retain and reuse hard-won knowledge?
  • Cope with massive, multi-faceted change?
  • Address overwhelming complexity?

The answers are tightly bound to what we do about explicit operational business knowledge. That knowledge needs to be captured and communicated then made accessible and manageable as an asset in its own right. In the process amazing new business capabilities emerge.

Learning Objectives:

  • Look at today’s business challenges from a whole new perspective
  • Understand how business rules relate to explicit knowledge
  • Gear up to re-use knowledge in a digital world
