    ABOUT THIS SESSION:

    Business Rules and Process are not separate topics.  In fact, in many industries at least 80% of the improvements to process are the result of changes to the Business Rules. To discover these opportunities, the information about the rules must be known and captured in a way that makes it more intuitive to understand. A business analyst must also understand and have the ability to analyze business rules in the proper context of the processes where they are applied.

    • How to clearly capture business rules as a part of your process model
    • How to analyze the rules in the context of the process
    • How to incorporate business rules analysis as a natural part of your process analysis with amazing improvement results
