Why Write a Book When There’s a Standard? – A Video

Real World Decision Modeling with DMNThe fourth in our series of videos about Decision Modeling discusses the difference between the book and the standard document published by OMG. Jan Purchase and I developed these while working on a new book – Real-World Decision Modeling with DMN – and this video discusses  why we think a book is useful and necessary even with a published standard:

  • The standard document is formal, precise and largely aimed at tool vendors
  • Business analysts, architects, managers and subject matter experts need to understand the approach too
  • We wanted to include best practices, dos and don’ts, from our years of experience
  • We felt there was a need for something on decision modeling with the standard, not just on the standard itself
