    ABOUT THIS SESSION:

    Albert Einstein famously said, “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” Mistakes happen. What’s important is what we learn from them, and armed with those insights, how we improve our practices going forward.

    This presentation distills 14 years of direct, hands-on experience with business rule projects. It also summarizes the most important points raised at the Business Rules Forum during my 10 years of moderating the annual Practitioner’s Panel.

    If you’re looking for a complete run-down of the dos and don’ts of business rules and decision analysis, this presentation is for you. Find out from those who have already been there how you can avoid common pitfalls.

    • Recurring mistakes in undertaking business rules projects and why people make them.
    • How to maximize your chances of success – the most important things you should know.
