Like its predecessor, BPMN Method and Style, DMN Method and Style provides not only a comprehensive explanation of the shapes and symbols of the modeling notation, but guidelines for communicating the modeler’s intent clearly from the printed diagrams plus a top-down methodology for decomposing complex business decisions in a systematic way.
Signavio provides one of the most complete and feature-rich tools implementing the DMN standard. Both the book and the training highlight advanced features of the Signavio Decision Manager, including multi-instance decisions, decision table verification, data-aware expression editor, dictionary (business glossary), and simulation (decision execution in the tool).
“Having Verification and Simulation built into the DMN tool provides the modeler with immediate feedback, ensuring the decision logic is complete, consistent, and gives a reasonable result. Features like these are what allow business users to do professional-grade decision modeling themselves.” -Bruce Silver, Bruce Silver Associates.
The DMN Method and Style training includes 60-day use of the Signavio Decision Manager for exercises in class and for post-class certification. Students learn in “hands-on” fashion how to use Signavio in a variety of decision modeling scenarios and decision logic patterns. The first class is live-online March 29-31 from 11am to 4pm (US Eastern time) each day. More information is available at http://methodandstyle.com/product/dmntraining/.
