Decision modeling shows how repeatable business decisions are made.

Decision models present how data and knowledge are combined to make a specific decision (simple or complex).

A comprehensive decision model is an overarching model linked to processes, performance measures, and organizations. It shows where the business rules come from and represents decisions as analytical insight.

For a business, making decisions is one of the most important aspect. A common mistake is formalizing the process and not decisions, which leads to neglecting these.  However, decisions are as important, if not more, as processes. They have your business and struggles at stake and represent a core aspect of business management.

Decision modeling is here to help you make the best suited decisions without altering your business’ integrity.
