This book is about rules for groups and communities of people (including their data). The goal? Shaping behavior and communicating business knowledge,not simply mimicking human intelligence. It’s exactly what you need for governance, traceability, and the human touch so often missing in digital solutions. Here’s your guide to real-world rules in business and government.

Rules are not actions and not processes. Nor are they instructions or commands. Rules are something else, something special. Confusion abounds about what rules are. What makes a statement special when you call it a rule? What restrictions does that place on how the statement is expressed? What special opportunities does it raise? These are crucial questions, some of the most fundamental you can ask. Time for a fresh look. Rules are almost certainly not what you think they are. And that lack of understanding is holding us back, especially as AI becomes more prominent.
