Rules as code isn’t the answer, but it can help :slight_smile:


If you are need of a 101 level article, something that sets out the business case and can be used to help convince decision makers - Pia and I wrote this article a while back for that specific purpose - We can create better results when we code the rules | Apolitical

This is excellent! Thanks Tim.

Just saw this was released out of experiences in NZ, on Rules as Code and also on Better Rules. It’s a fantastic report - excellent discussion of the issues and opportunities, and nicely treats many of the areas where there are myths, controversies, and over-reach.
