In the current fast-paced and constantly changing business environment, it is more important than ever for organizations to be agile, monitor business performance, and meet with increasingly stringent compliance requirements. Written by pioneering consultants and bestselling authors with track records of international success, The Decision Model: A Business Logic Framework Linking Business and Technology provides a platform for rethinking how to view, design, execute, and govern business logic. The book explains how to implement the Decision Model, a stable, rigorous model of core business logic that informs current and emerging technology.

The authors supply a strong theoretical foundation, while succinctly defining the path needed to incorporate agile and iterative techniques for developing a model that will be the cornerstone for continual growth. Because the book introduces a new model with tentacles in many disciplines, it is divided into three sections:

Section 1: A Complete overview of the Decision Model and its place in the business and technology world

Section 2: A Detailed treatment of the foundation of the Decision Model and a formal definition of the Model

Section 3: Specialized topics of interest on the Decision Model, including both business and technical issues

The Decision Model provides a framework for organizing business rules into well-formed decision-based structures that are predictable, stable, maintainable, and normalized. More than this, the Decision Model directly correlates business logic to the business drivers behind it, allowing it to be used as a lever for meeting changing business objectives and marketplace demands. This book not only defines the Decision Model and but also demonstrates how it can be used to organize decision structures for maximum stability, agility, and technology independence and provide input into automation design.

Review Text

  • By Andy Collins on 21 April 2010

    I thought the Business Rule Revolution was a great book, but this is better.The Decision Model raises the level of abstraction at which we manage Business Rules (a Business Decision is a set of rules) and the approach the books presents is to Business Logic what the Relational Database model was/is to Data Management i.e. thorough, widely applicable, and very very useful.The book also provides great insight into Business Logic in general, covering Business Rules and Business Decision Management (BDM), and the relationship between the Decision Model and, amongst other things, architecture (SOA) process modelling (BPMN) and Enterprise Decision Management (EDM).This book should be on any Business / System Analyst's reading list. However, my only niggle is that the authors felt the need to invent a whole new graphical notation for modelling decisions, when surely UML (an ISO and de facto industry) standard would have sufficed.

    The content and theory behind this book is great, but the delivery is rather repetitive and grandiose. Hard work to read, but worthwhile the effort.
