AttainingEdge Seminar: Business Rules and Decision Analysis: Hands-On Workshop (2-Day Seminar)

Location:  San Francisco, CA You’ll walk away from this rapid-paced, hands-on workshop ready to develop easy-to-understand business rules for your company in the form of decision tables, unambiguous sentences, or some combination of both, whatever is best-suited for the purpose. You will gain an immediate boost in productivity through sharper analysis and communication skills, both for the business side and the IT side. Here’s how you can take business analysis to the next level of capability. This seminar demystifies business rules and prepares you to capture them in a wide variety of circumstances. It reviews many dozens of real-world examples and templates, many of which you can adapt to your own work. You’ll be prepared with pragmatic techniques to capture and formulate business rules separately from business process models and other kinds of requirements. Everything presented is reinforced via hands-on workshop problems. New to this seminar is the very latest on decision analysis. Proven techniques are presented to identify and analyze decisions in the day-to-day operations of the business and to capture and organize the related business rules in optimal fashion using decision tables. Your intuitive understanding of decision tables will be fined-tuned and made ready for rigorous, effective and smart application. This workshop also demonstrates how to develop smart Q&A dialogs as part of system requirements. Based on business rules and decision tables, these structured dialogs guide users in directed fashion to provide the exact information needed to make each decision correctly. In addition, since the underlying decision logic is highly organized and accessible, the dialogs can be refined rapidly as new insights are gained during actual business operation. This round-trip, business-driven approach not only produces dramatic improvements in system design practices, but also results in a highly dynamic, highly agile work environment. Now the business can learn from its own experience and continuously make itself smarter. More information: http://www.attainingedge.com/Business_Rules_and_Decision_Analysis.php
