In a recent announcement, the Object Management Group made it clear that process people – those getting BPMN (Business Process Model and Notation) certification specifically – should know about decision modeling and the new Decision Model and Notation (DMN) standard. In this press release OMG Updates Business Intermediate Level of BPM Certification Program the role of DMN in the certification is highlighted.
I think this is a great thing. We are doing a lot of work with folks who are rolling out Decision Management and decision modeling with DMN across all their business process/BPMN teams. Adding decision modeling and Decision Management to BPM initiatives results in simpler, smarter and more agile processes and provides a great context for DMN work.
