Abstract: Businesses run on business rules, which guide the operational decisions frontline employees make every day. Well-managed business rules tie the actions of individuals to the strategic objectives of the company in two ways: they inform daily operational decisions, and they inform the metrics on scorecards that track individual performance. In this briefing, we describe how digitization helps companies manage business rules for competitive advantage, and use Citrix’s experiences in managing its partner-related business rules as an illustrative example.

An excellent summary.

In Business Process models, I like to show such rules as “Controls” (In IDEF/ICOM) speak on processes or activities. These ideally link back to the strategic level (strategy or objectives) alongside the KPIs or Measures on the same processes & activities.

My consultancy work has frequently shown the gap between Objectives & Controls (often not kept updated) & Objectives & Measures: The Measures Gap.

It’s very revealing when senior managers realise they need to “Mind the gap”.
