Decision Modeling in V3 of the BABOK®

Decision3The International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) has announced a public review of version 3 of the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide).  This is an exciting release for the Decision Management community. 

  • Decision Modeling has been added as a technique using the Decision Model and Notation (DMN) standard.
  • The Business Process Modeling perspective has a solid focus on decisions as peers to business processes and on decisions as a way to embed business rules in business process.
  • The Business Intelligence perspective has a nice focus on requirements for more advanced kinds of analytics and makes great use of the decision modeling technique in this context as well as having a more general focus on the importance of modeling decisions so BI can help.

We am excited about this new version and encourage you to check out the FAQs here and then go ahead and be part of the public review of version 3. Show decision modeling some love!
