Business Decision Management is a technology-assisted practice of defining, analyzing, and maintaining the decision logic that drives interactions with customers, suppliers, and employees. For many years, subject matter experts created text-based "requirements" and handed them over to programmers for implementation on a Business Rule Engine. The Decision Model and Notation (DMN) now offers a better way: decision logic precisely defined and maintained by subject matter experts themselves, using business-friendly graphical models that can be automatically validated for completeness and consistency. Since DMN is an industry standard, the meaning of a decision model does not depend on the tool used to create it or some consultant's methodology. It's defined by a specification. And best of all, DMN models are directly executable, so What You See Is What You Get. "DMN Method and Style" is your guide to the new standard and to the features and benefits of Business Decision Management. It explains not only the shapes and symbols used to describe end-to-end decision logic in a Decision Requirements Diagram (DRD), but how to properly decompose the top-level decision into a network of supporting decisions and input data. It also shows you how to define the detailed logic of each decision in the diagram using decision tables, literal expressions, and reusable logic blocks called business knowledge models. Like its predecessor "BPMN Method and Style," the book suggests best practices, in the form of style rules and a modeling methodology, for capturing the end-to-end decision logic in a way that is complete, consistent, and clear from the printed DRD and tabular expressions alone.

BPMN 2.0 is the industry standard diagramming language for business process models. The meaning of the business process diagram is the same, regardless of the tool used to create it. But creating models that are correct, complete, and clear demands more than a dictionary of BPMN shapes and symbols. It also requires a methodology for translating process logic consistently into the diagram. And it requires a measure of modeling style as well, conventions that ensure that the process logic is unambiguous from the diagram by itself. In short, "good BPMN" requires a disciplined approach called "method and style." In this book, Bruce Silver explains which BPMN elements process modelers need to understand, in two levels, including exactly where and how to use each element. Level 1 (the Descriptive modeling subclass of BPMN 2.0) is a palette of shapes and symbols largely carried over from traditional flowcharting. Level 2 (the Analytic subclass) expands the palette to be able to describe event-triggered behavior, critical to modeling exception handling. The book explains the real meaning of BPMN's most basic concepts - like activity, process, and end state - essential to using the language correctly, and provides a step-by-step methodology for going from a blank page to a complete end-to-end BPMN model, developed from the top down in a hierarchical structure. From the top-level diagram you can see on a single page exactly how the process starts, its possible end states, what the instance represents, and communications with the Customer, service providers, and other processes. From there you can drill down to see the details of any part of the process.

The facilitation of knowledge work or what is increasingly known as "Case Management" represents the next imperative in office automation. The desire to fully support knowledge workers within the workplace is not new. What's new is that recent advances in Information Technology now make the management of unpredictable circumstances a practical reality. There's now a groundswell of interest in a more flexible, dynamic approach to supporting knowledge work. The facilitation of knowledge work or what is increasingly known as "Case Management" represents the next imperative in office automation. The desire to fully support knowledge workers within the workplace is not new. What's new is that recent advances in Information Technology now make the management of unpredictable circumstances a practical reality. There's now a groundswell of interest in a more flexible, dynamic approach to supporting knowledge work. Here are examples of what recognized experts have have recently written on the topic: Advancing to support more knowledge work is the goal of many organizations, thus there is a new groundswell of activity around unstructured processes. - Jim Sinur, VP of Research, Gartner I think a sea change is coming in the process world. -Connie Moore, Research Vice President, Forrester The sea of change Moore refers to is about technology that is able to support knowledge workers. The work of a knowledge worker is by its nature unpredictable and can not be handled by more formalized process definition techniques. For executives and managers of knowledge workers, "Mastering the Unpredictable" will: Explain the need and why previous technological approaches don't meet the need Explain the current technology gap, and the new technology that can close the gap Lay out the options that can increase the efficiency and effectiveness of their organizations Equip them to best take advantage of this evolving trend

Creating business process models that can be shared effectively across the business - and between business and IT - demands more than a digest of BPMN shapes and symbols. It requires a step-by-step methodology for going from a blank page to a complete process diagram. It also requires consistent application of a modeling style, so that the modeler's meaning is clear from the diagram itself. Author Bruce Silver explains not only the meaning and proper usage of the entire BPMN 2.0 palette, but calls out the working subset that you really need to know. He also reveals the hidden assumptions of core concepts left unexplained in the spec, the key to BPMN's deeper meaning. The book addresses BPMN at three levels, with primary focus on the first two. Level 1, or descriptive BPMN, uses a basic working set of shapes and symbols to meet the needs of business users doing process mapping. Level 2, or analytical BPMN, is aimed at business analysts and architects. It takes advantage of BPMN's expressiveness for detailing event and exception handling, key to analyzing and improving process performance and quality. Level 3, or executable BPMN, is brand new in BPMN 2.0. Here the XML underneath the diagram shapes becomes an executable design can be deployed to a process engine to automate the process. The method and style detailed in the book aligns these three levels, facilitating business-IT collaboration throughout the process lifecycle. Inside the book you'll find discussions, illustrated with over 100 examples, about: The questions BPMN asks, and does not ask The meaning of basic concepts like starting and completing, sending and receiving, waiting and listening Subprocesses and hierarchical modeling style The five basic steps in creating Level 1 models Event and exception-handling patterns Branching and merging patterns Level 2 modeling method Elements of BPMN style: element usage and diagram composition

With over fifty implementations, Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) is an increasingly successful Object Management Group (OMG) standard. Whether you are in government, manufacturing, or business, you can easily and accurately depict your company's processes in BPMN. BPMN Specification 1.1, however, can be abstract, lengthy, and complicated. As a result, learning to use BPMN can be daunting and force professionals to steer clear of it without an efficient and easy way of getting acquainted with the material. The straightforward information that is packed into this book is exactly what is needed. This guide gathers all the ideas, design, and problem-solving of BPMN into one simple, focused book, and offers concrete true-life examples that explain BPMN's approach to process modeling. With the wide-scale adoption of BPMN2.0, a new era for process modeling has arisen. In their second edition, Tom and Rick continue with the most concise coverage of BPMN available. They cover more 'real-life' business scenarios and model more unstructured, monitored and indefinite activities. The text not only corporate new metaphors of events and decision-directed event processing, it also covers 15 different design patterns, forged in the furnace of practical, state-of-the-art process modeling, that provide a shortcut to a proven design. The material in this comprehensive, focused book has been gleaned from actual practices and proven in many of the most advanced processes in production today.Build visible, agile and powerful process that meet the needs of a chaotic and globally federated environment. This book will teach you to tackle modern process modeling challenges. REVIEWS: "Finding a succinct and accessible book on the Business Process Modeling Notation (BMPN) is a pleasure. Finding one that clearly lays out the role of decisions and business rules in business processes is a delight. The MicroGuide to Business Process Management in BPMN is a short, easy to read book that gives a solid grounding in the core concepts of BPMN, passes on some realworld experience and suggestions from the authors, and gives great, practical advice on how use cases, BPMN, decision management and business rules all come together. Tom Debevoise and Rick Geneva have done a great job in outlining the Process Modeling Framework, introducing BPMN, and showing how it can be used. If BPMN is (or will be) part of your world, this book should be on your shelves." -James Taylor, Author Smart (Enough) Systems "It should be a valuable addition to a practitioner's library. I found the PMF and application to use case language to be of particular interest, as well as the relationship between business processes and business rules."- Stan Hendryx, Hendryx & Associates
