Title & abstract of Rainers speech:

Formalizing Portfolio Decision Processes with DMN 

Decisions about project investments are usually driven by various factors. In many cases, companies are not following a structured process for decision making, but have steering boards or committees in place which decide on a case-by-case basis where projects get a permission for kick-off or not. A simple set of Business Rules can help categorizing projects and formalizing investments decisions You will learn • Why it makes sense to categorize projects into classes, depending on the required investment, the expected outcome, the risk profile and the strategic relevance • How Portfolio Management and PMO can benefit from a set of Business Rules and a formal decision process which is unambiguously documented with the help of the Decision Modelling Notation (DMN).
