Live Online: BPM Institute Decision Modeling with DMN

I am teaching a live online version of the BPM Institute’s Decision Modeling with DMN class on July 30th and 31st, 1-5pm ET each day.

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

The primary goal of DMN is to provide a standard notation that is readily understandable by all business stakeholders. These business stakeholders include the business analysts wh

Decision Modeling and the Business Analyst Body of Knowledge

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

Decision-centric dashboards and application lifecycle management with Assure

We have become increasingly convinced that decision modeling, especially decision modeling using the Decision Model and Notation (DMN) standard and DecisionsFirst Modeler, is a great way to design dashboards. Building a decision model focuses on the decisions that must be made by the user of the dashboard, on how they make that decision and on the information and knowledge that they need to make a good one. Doing this before drilling into the specific user interface elements involved keeps the focus on business outcomes not on look and feel – on steak, not sizzle. I’m delighted to announce that we have developed a new partnership to apply this approach in Application Lifecycle Management.
