Business Rules Journal vol:7 issue:8 (Aug.) pages:1-3
There is a lot of discussion nowadays about deregulation, simplification and regulatory compliance. Some would argue that less rules make it easier to comply with the basic requirements without loosing the freedom to fill in the details. Others would argue that more and stricter rules make it easier for business to guarantee compliance, because there is less uncertainty.Is 'Less or More' really the issue? Do more rules automatically lead to well organized, transparent, and compliant business processes? Do fewer rules guarantee simplicity and flexibility? Not necessarily. It depends on the rules and how we use them.
