What caused the BP Oil disaster in the Gulf? What triggered the Flash Crash?
Join us Tuesday May 17 @ 8PM CT for a Rules Harvesting Live session where we will explore how the BIZRULES® Simple Rules™ methodology can help explain what happened and how to prevent it from happening again. See how rule architecture models and knowledge engineering maps remove complexity and simplify the situation. We don't have all the answers, but we can show you how a rules-based and knowledge-based analysis make these problems much easier to understand.
Business Rule Experts Group (BRxG) and Agility Alliance (AA) invites you to attend our online WEBEX meeting & call on the 3rd Tuesday, May 18, 2010. (This month we'll use Webex, not Skype)
To join us, send an email to BRxG_DallasRulesGroup_2009@bizrules.info. We will send you a confirmation email with WEBEX call in instructions.
If you have any questions or would like more information, call me at 972-987-1685.

Stock Drop and Oil Leak Rules Analysis
What were the rules for operating the BP Oil Deepwater Horizon blowout preventer (BOP)? What were the rules for shutting down and stopping the whole operation before failure? Rules were broken, lives were lost, and reputations shattered when the oil rig exploded and pipes burst 5,000 feet underwater.
You thought accountability was hard in your company? Worried about losing credibility? Losing sleep over compliance with rules & regulations? Be glad you're not in BP's shoes. Need to bring together your top experts and super-experts who are the only people in the world able to solve a global disaster (Knowledge management)? Need to quickly come up with simple engineering solutions to complex technical problems that have never happened before in the industry (Agility)? Do you need to do it while the clock is ticking, oil is spilling, and the world is watching.? Rules can help.
What triggered the Flash Crash? Did anyone know how the (NYSE) system really worked and how it was inter-connected with other systems (Nasdaq)? Did anyone understand that if one market stopped trading for 90 seconds the whole system would collapse? Worried that your company's stock will drop from $40 to 1 penny during your coffee break?
You thought architecting rules within your own company was hard? Nasdaq and NYSE are going to have to revisit their trading rules (strategy), integrate rules with competitors (interoperability) , do it quickly (agility), better make it work (quality), make sure the solution lasts (durability), better make sure this never happens again (reliability), and explain to the public how it really works (transparency). Do your systems, processes, and rules truly align with the corporate vision, mission, goals, strategy (alignment)? Do your systems truly serve Shareholders interests (profitability)? Rules can help.
