Paul Harmon over on BPTrends interviewed Jan Purchase and I about our new book, Real-World Decision Modeling with DMN. The interview covers a pretty wide range of topics – a definition of Decision Modeling, the bottom line value of modeling a decision, the difference between decisions and rules and how decision modeling helps projects. We talk about some of our memorable experiences of applying decision modeling, our favorite best practices and the value in applying decision modeling and the Decision Model and Notation (DMN) standard alongside BPMN. We outline our method for applying decision modeling and DMN, and talk a little about the book – who it is aimed at and what it contains (Over 220 practical illustrations, 47 best practices, 13 common misconceptions to avoid, 12 patterns and approaches and 3 worked examples among other things). We end with some thoughts on how to get started.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the interview over on the BPTrends site and, if you do, why not buy the book? Real-World Decision Modeling with DMN is available on amazon and more details are available on the Meghan-Kiffer site.
