10 Rules for Rules

Here are 10 rules for designing good business rules. They all happen to begin with the letter C. This was written somewhere over the Grand Canyon on the way to San Jose, CA for the 3rd annual RulesFest conference, where this was presented for the first time.

Click here to see the slides (1.6Mb PDF) and to hear a recording of the 7 minute presentation (71Mb WAV file). Be sure to listen in to hear a story or example for each rule.

10 Rules for Rules

  • Clear... not confusing
  • Complete
  • Correct
  • Current
  • Compliant
  • Condensed
  • Credible... not incredible
  • Careful... not careless
  • Common sense
  • Consistent... not inconsistent

Any others?

We'd love to hear from you if you can think of any other rule rules that start with C. Contact us and let us know what you think.
