"The Decision Model gives form, function and a tangible visual representation to business logic" - The Decision Model (von Halle & Goldberg)

In order to implement Decision Management effectively, we need to be able to identify and manage the business logic (i.e. the business rules) underlying business decisions. It soon becomes apparent that classical methods of gathering and managing business rules (i.e. by natural language) do not scale to support Decision Management requirements.

"The Decision Model gives form, function and a tangible visual representation to business logic" - The Decision Model (von Halle & Goldberg)

In order to implement Decision Management effectively, we need to be able to identify and manage the business logic (i.e. the business rules) underlying business decisions. It soon becomes apparent that classical methods of gathering and managing business rules (i.e. by natural language) do not scale to support Decision Management requirements. The Decision Model enables business leaders to manage a more tangible and relevant business asset rather than individual natural language business rules. This technology independent model is a platform on which a powerful Decision Management foundation may be built.
