Decision Modeling: how to place data at the center of your organizationís decisions

Thursday, October 18, 2017, 8:30 - 10:00 a.m.

The Decision Model is a simple set of visual models and accompanying text used for modeling decisions. Data modelers will find it analogous to a data model. It is perfect for documenting decisions of any size, from the very simple (e.g., evaluate speaker proposal) to the extremely complex (e.g., determine credit rating). It is an excellent technique to assist business stakeholders in expressing and understanding and documenting their criteria for making decisions. In doing so, it places your data at the center of your organizationís decision making processes.

Audience: data modelers, business analysts

Decision Modeling for Success!

Tuesday, October 23, 2018, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.

Defining or documenting operational decision making practices and policies is typically challenging. However using a simple decision modeling technique can overcome those challenges. The technique uses a diagram and tables and can be used for analyzing, documenting, and specifying decisions of any type.

This session presents a comprehensive decision modeling technique that is easily understood by both business people and software developers, and can be applied to decisions ranging from the very simple to the extremely complex. The case study presented will be of an IEEE C-Net member determining whether or not to accept a contracting engagement!

Business decision making is seldom fact-based and repeatable. Using the Decision Model technique can change that!

Audience: consultants, business analysts, anyone who would like to clarify decision making
