Enter DMN Method and Style. It makes valuable contributions at both the "big picture" level, and at the detailed decision logic level. For the big picture, DMN describes the overall end-to-end decision in terms of sub-decisions and information requirements. This gets to the "why" of a decision, usually missing from the BPMN view alone. While DMN is useful for describing all kinds of decision making, a substantial portion is targeted toward decision automation. Here, the book is probably the best source of business-focused, worked examples of DMN decision tables and other tabular expressions available today. The examples show that full decision automation is no longer the exclusive domain of programmers and IT staff. Anyone comfortable with spreadsheets and formulas can learn to automate decision models. As IT staff becomes harder to find in the new world of cloud computing, that is good news, indeed.
While I don’t necessarily agree with every stake in the ground that Bruce places in part III (method and style), his arguments are well thought out, reference the experts in the field and go a long way toward elucidating thinking on these topics. The book is ambitious in its scope to explain the new standard, draw a methodological picture and push both modelers and vendors toward the future that he envisions for DMN.
Having taken his excellent online BPMN course I would also recommend looking into his new DMN offering.
Even for those not using BPMN or DMN (or not using them completely or exactingly as the standards and it's promulgators like Bruce might prefer), both Mr. Silver's works are worth reading. The BPMN and DMN notations and these texts have given me new ways of conceptualizing process and decision logic, and this has made me a better business analyst generally.
