This quarter we are focusing the BDM topic here at BPM Institute on decision modeling. This is a rapidly emerging space as a new standard, the Decision Model and Notation standard from the OMG, is being finalized while decision modeling has been proposed as a technique for the new Business Analyst Body of Knowledge. All this of course builds on work by people like Alan Fish, Jan Vanthienen and Larry Goldberg/Barb von Halle.
So what I'd like to do is start a discussion - how might formally modeling decisions improve your requirements process? Decisions matter when you think about modeling processes, modeling business rules or expressing requirements for analytics. Will a standard approach to decision modeling help you? Do you expect to start modeling decisions? Perhaps you are already modeling decisions and have experiences to share. Post them.
