As business modeling becomes mainstream, every year more and more companies and government agencies are creating models of their businesses. But creating good business models is not a simple endeavor. Business modeling requires new skills. Written by two business modeling experts, this book shows you how to make your business modeling efforts successful. It provides in-depth coverage of each of the four distinct business modeling disciplines, helping you master them all and understand how to effectively combine them. It also details best practices for working with subject matter experts. And it shows how to develop models, and then analyze, simulate, and deploy them. This is essential, authoritative information that will put you miles ahead of everyone who continues to approach business modeling haphazardly. * Provides in-depth coverage of the four business modeling disciplines: process modeling, motivation modeling, organization modeling, and rules modeling. * Offers guidance on how to work effectively with subject matter experts and how to run business modeling workshops. * Details today's best practices for building effective business models, and describes common mistakes that should be avoided. * Describes standards for each business modeling discipline. * Explains how to analyze, simulate, and deploy business models. * Includes examples both from the authors' work with clients and from a single running example that spans the book.

This book provides you with a collection of best practices, guidelines, and tips for using the Unified Modeling Language (UML) for business analysis. The contents have been assembled over the years based on experience and documented best practices. Over sixty easy to understand UML diagram examples will help you to apply these ideas immediately. If you use, expect to use, or think you should use the Unified Modeling Language (UML) or use cases in your business analysis activities, this book will help you: • communicate more succinctly and effectively with your stakeholders including your software development team, • increase the likelihood that your requirements will be reviewed and understood, • reduce requirements analysis, documentation, and review time. The first three chapters explain the reasons for utilizing the UML for business analysis, present a brief history of the UML and its diagram categories, and describe a set of general modeling guidelines and tips applicable to all of the UML diagram types. Each of the next thirteen chapters is dedicated to a different UML diagram type: 1. Use Case Diagrams 2. Activity Diagrams 3. Interaction Overview Diagrams 4. Class Diagrams 5. Object Diagrams 6. State Machine Diagrams 7. Timing Diagrams 8. Sequence Diagrams 9. Communication Diagrams 10. Composite Structure Diagrams 11. Component Diagrams 12. Deployment Diagrams 13. Package Diagrams The next two chapters explain additional diagram types that are important for business analysts and that can be created using UML notation: • Context Diagrams using Communication diagram notation • Data Models using Class diagram notation These chapters are followed by a chapter that describes criteria for selecting the various diagram types. The final chapter presents a case study.
