Decision Modeling is a new Technique in v3 of the BABOK(r) Guide. It’s also become a key element of the Business Intelligence and Business Process Management Perspectives. In this session James Taylor will introduce Decision Modeling as a technique (following the new Decision Model and Notation standard), show how modeling decisions can improve business analysis and requirements specification, and discuss the role of decision modeling in business process, business rules, business intelligence and analytic projects.
The Decision Model and Notation (DMN) is a standard for decision modeling in the process of being adopted by the Object Management Group. It provides a graphical notation for specifying decisions so that decision making can be modeled separately from business processes. DMN allows both technical users and business users to describe, model and manage decision-making by providing a notation that is intuitive to business users yet able to represent complex decision making. The DMN specification also provides a mapping between the graphics of the notation to the underlying constructs of execution environments such as business rules management systems and predictive analy

Some time back I participated in a large group of practitioners working on a new version of A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® . After months of consolidating feedback and updating this (vry thorough) document, the IIBA has announced a public review of version 3. As their own newsletter says:
You can review the entire document or focus only on your areas of expertise and provide your feedback to the international, volunteer Core Team. Be sure to forward this email to your colleagues and friends in the Business Analyst profession and encourage them to participate. The more people from more countries, industries and companies of all sizes who contribute, the stronger this version of the BABOK® Guide will be!
[IIBA has] implemented a new Feedback Collector that makes it easy to submit suggestions, propose edits and provide feedback. To learn how to us

While many, most, organizations know they need to focus on business processes, a matching focus on operational decisions is less common. The effective combination of Business Process Management (BPM) with Business Decision Management (BDM) is emerging as a critical element in successful organizations. BPMInstitute.org has been providing insight and education on the relationship between business rules/Business Decision Management (BDM) and BPM for nearly a decade and Gregg Rock, editor and founder of BPMInstitute.org, recently asked me to write up my thoughts on the
