Do  your processes always produce correct and consistent results? If not the  problem probably lies with your business rules and decision logic. You need the  right techniques to fix these problems - process models, use cases, data models  and other analysis techniques just don't do the job.

Business  Rules are criteria used to judge the correctness of business behavior and to make  operational business decisions. There is a well-formed, in-depth body of best  practices and standards developed over the past decade for this area. These  techniques have proven invaluable in improving business processes, developing  better business requirements, and creating more agile business solutions. This  seminar explains how business rules can be expressed, analyzed, validated, and  managed as easily and as quickly as possible.

Decisions are choices made in day-to-day business  operations. Such decisions are highly repetitive - they might be taking place  hundreds or thousands of times per day, per hour, or even per minute. They are  predictable and well-structured in terms of the outcomes they produce. New,  highly pragmatic techniques have emerged in just the past several years for  top-down decision analysis. The results are ultimately organized into decision  tables, a powerful set of techniques all professionals should know.

This  hands-on workshop gives you essential tools to help you achieve  order-of-magnitude improvements in business capabilities. The result is  simpler, smarter process models and a huge boost in business agility. Learn  applied techniques from the recognized world leader in the field.
