RuleSpeak®

Definition: RuleSpeak® is a set of guidelines for expressing business rules in concise, business-friendly fashion. It is not a language or syntax per se, but rather a set of best practices for speakers of English.

Purpose:

  • To bring greater clarity and consistency in communicating rules, whether among business people or as requirements for IT.

  • To capture, express and retain decision criteria and business know-how effectively.

Origin: RuleSpeak for English has been developed by Ronald G. Ross starting in 1996. It has been applied to hundreds of projects since that time by Business Rule Solutions, LLC (BRS). Versions of RuleSpeak have been available on the BRS website since the late 1990s.

Standardization: RuleSpeak was one of three reference notations used in the creation of the standard Semantics for Business Vocabulary and Business Rules (SBVR) published by the Object Management Group (OMG) in 2007. It is fully consistent with that standard.
