DMN and Pencil

DMNBack in my early product management days, I looked at several tools for requirement capture. I found quite a few good solutions for product requirements, but nothing I really liked for capturing source rules. When working on business rules or decision management project, I leaned towards Spreadsheets and Word documents. And then, DMN was created!

With the DMN standard (Decision Model and Notation), we finally have a notation that works with a powerful underlying methodology. I really like that the notation forces you, the business analyst, into thinking about the ultimate decision(s) in a structured way. Instead of thinking exhaustively about all the rules that exist in your business, the methodology encourages you to decompose your big decision into smaller sub-decisions. This iterative process is very friendly, and very easy to share with your colleagues.

In our upcoming webinar, on April 11, we will introduce the DMN methodology. We will illustrate actual use cases using our Pencil Decision Modeler.

Join us on 4/11 at 9am PT / noon ET!
