The most complete and integrated coverage of BPMN 2.0 and DMN, including authoritative frameworks for integrating decision and process modeling.

In this third edition of the successful Microguide to BPMN, James Taylor joins Tom Debevoise to create an integrated guide to process and decision modeling in BPMN/DMN. Starting with the basics and progressing to a comprehensive framework for modeling decision-responsive processes, the Microguide uses simple language aided with concrete use cases and scenarios to teach the user how to properly use these powerful notations. Business process management helps organizations achieve many of their operational goals and deliver on their business models. It creates visibility, allowing fine-grained monitoring and control of day to day operations. Creating process models in BPMN is a critical aspect of BPM, helping discover, optimize, execute and manage an organization’s business processes. Many organizations use decision management to improve process outcomes by focusing on the way decisions are made within and across those processes. With the addition of the Decision Model and Notation standard, DMN, organizations now have a rigorous way to graphically model decisions. Moreover, DMN decision models can be combined with BPMN process models for unparalleled synergy. Covering important topics related to business process and decision modeling: the Microguide is the only authoritative book that addresses these topics and more. The Book covers:

  • Quick guides to OMG's BPMN 2.0 and DMN 1.0 notation
  • Common Patterns based on proven design
  • Decision modeling patterns
  • Event processing patterns
  • Most comprehensive framework for integrating decision, event and process modeling
  • Process and decision discovery through effective requirements gathering techniques Quotations: George Barlow Executive Vice President, AgilePoint Software : “With this third edition Tom and his coauthor James Taylor bring a new, much needed and appreciated additional perspective to process discovery and design - that of decision modeling.

If you want a practical guide with excellent examples of how to use the standard modeling notation for BPM and to learn the importance of modeling decision rules and techniques for doing that,” James Sinur: “Net; Net: This book will stand the test of time in that it will be germane to most process”
