Course description

Did you know an average human makes around 35.000 decisions each day? As humans, we make these decisions based on the information we have at hand when the decision occurs. Based on the decisions we make, we can achieve certain results. 

Knowing that companies are made up of people, it’s no surprise; it’s quite similar for them. Every organization makes tons of decisions in its processes each day, so this decision-making should be optimized and automated. It can, however, be quite challenging to manage, structure, automate, and visualize decisions in a business environment correctly.

In this course, you’ll learn how to build comprehensible and readable decision models with DMN, the industry standard to model decision logic.
