Business Decision Management is a technology-assisted practice of defining, analyzing, and maintaining the decision logic that drives interactions with customers, suppliers, and employees. For many years, subject matter experts created text-based "requirements" and handed them over to programmers for implementation on a Business Rule Engine. The Decision Model and Notation (DMN) now offers a better way: decision logic precisely defined and maintained by subject matter experts themselves, using business-friendly graphical models that can be automatically validated for completeness and consistency. Since DMN is an industry standard, the meaning of a decision model does not depend on the tool used to create it or some consultant's methodology. It's defined by a specification. And best of all, DMN models are directly executable, so What You See Is What You Get. "DMN Method and Style" is your guide to the new standard and to the features and benefits of Business Decision Management. It explains not only the shapes and symbols used to describe end-to-end decision logic in a Decision Requirements Diagram (DRD), but how to properly decompose the top-level decision into a network of supporting decisions and input data. It also shows you how to define the detailed logic of each decision in the diagram using decision tables, literal expressions, and reusable logic blocks called business knowledge models. Like its predecessor "BPMN Method and Style," the book suggests best practices, in the form of style rules and a modeling methodology, for capturing the end-to-end decision logic in a way that is complete, consistent, and clear from the printed DRD and tabular expressions alone.

Case management is a branch of business process management dealing with unstructured processes. CMMN is a business-oriented language for case models, both descriptive and executable. This book shows how to use CMMN to create case models in which the logic is both clear from the printed diagrams and executable on a business automation platform.

This textbook covers the entire Business Process Management (BPM) lifecycle, from process identification to process monitoring, covering along the way process modelling, analysis, redesign and automation. Concepts, methods and tools from business management, computer science and industrial engineering are blended into one comprehensive and inter-disciplinary approach. The presentation is illustrated using the BPMN industry standard defined by the Object Management Group and widely endorsed by practitioners and vendors worldwide. In addition to explaining the relevant conceptual background, the book provides dozens of examples, more than 230 exercises – many with solutions – and numerous suggestions for further reading. This second edition includes extended and completely revised chapters on process identification, process discovery, qualitative process analysis, process redesign, process automation and process monitoring. A new chapter on BPM as an enterprise capability has been added, which expands the scope of the book to encompass topics such as the strategic alignment and governance of BPM initiatives. The textbook is the result of many years of combined teaching experience of the authors, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels as well as in the context of professional training. Students and professionals from both business management and computer science will benefit from the step-by-step style of the textbook and its focus on fundamental concepts and proven methods. Lecturers will appreciate the class-tested format and the additional teaching material available on the accompanying website.

Best Practices for Knowledge Workers describes ACM in the current era of digitization, Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), intelligent BPMS and BPM Everywhere. You will learn how support of adaptive, data-driven processes empowers knowledge workers to know in real-time what is happening at the edge points, and to take actions through the combination of rule-driven guidance and their own know-how. It is not a traditionally-automated system but intelligent automation, where technology doesn’t merely replace human decision-making but extends the reach of the knowledge worker; making IoT data actionable. As Sandy Kemsley points out in her foreword: As adaptive case management (ACM) systems mature, we are moving beyond simple systems that allow knowledge workers to define ad hoc processes, to creating more intelligent systems that support and guide them. Knowledge workers still need to dynamically add information, define activities and collaborate with others in order to get their work done, but those are now just the table stakes in a world of big data and intelligent agents. To drive innovation and maintain operational efficiencies, we need to augment case work – typically seen as relying primarily on human intelligence – with machine intelligence. In other words, we need intelligent ACM. Highly predictable work is easy to support using traditional programming techniques, while unpredictable work cannot be accurately scripted in advance, and thus requires the involvement of the knowledge workers themselves. The core element of Adaptive Case Management (ACM) is the support for real-time decision-making by knowledge workers. In award-winning case studies covering industries as a diverse as law enforcement, transportation, insurance, banking, state services, and healthcare, you will find instructive examples for how to transform your own organization. This important book follows these ground-breaking best-sellers on ACM; Thriving on Adaptability, Empowering Knowledge Workers, Taming the Unpredictable, How Knowledge Workers Get Things Done, and Mastering the Unpredictable and provides important papers by thought-leaders in this field, together with practical examples, detailed ACM case studies and product reviews.

The premise of neuroplasticity on enhancing cognitive functioning among healthy as well as cognitively impaired individuals across the lifespan, and the potential of harnessing these processes to prevent cognitive decline attract substantial scientific and public interest. Indeed, the systematic evidence base for cognitive training, video games, physical exercise and other forms of brain stimulation such as entrain brain activity is growing rapidly. This Research Topic (RT) focused on recent research conducted in the field of cognitive and brain plasticity induced by physical activity, different types of cognitive training, including computerized interventions, learning therapy, video games, and combined intervention approaches as well as other forms of brain stimulation that target brain activity, including electroencephalography and neurofeedback. It contains 49 contributions to the topic, including Original Research articles (37), Clinical Trials (2), Reviews (5), Mini Reviews (2), Hypothesis and Theory (1), and Corrections (2).

Overcome resistance and fully engage clients by bringingneuroscience into treatment Brain2Brain: Enacting Client Change Through the PersuasivePower of Neuroscience applies the popular topic ofneuroscience in mental health to everyday practice, showingtherapists how to teach their clients brain-based strategies formaking changes and improving their lives. Cutting-edge findings inneuroscience are translated into language that clients willunderstand, and sidebars provide therapists more detailedinformation relating to particular disorders. With a holisticapproach that incorporates mental, spiritual, and physical skills,knowledge, and exercises, this book provides a clear, completeresource for incorporating neuroscience into therapy. Case examplesillustrate how the material can be used with different types ofclients and situations, and sample dialogues and client handoutshelp therapists easily incorporate these techniques into theirpractice. Many clients forget that there is a biological basis foreverything the brain does, and the ways that activity manifestseveryday – good or bad, healthy or dysfunctional, the verycore of human consciousness boils down to a series of electricalimpulses. This book helps therapists bring neuroscience intotherapy, to teach clients how to work with their brain's innateprocesses to reinforce progress and achieve healthier outcomes.
