For Immediate Release

Atlanta/Mendham B2T Training (B2T), a founding member of the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®) and leader in the field of business analysis training and professional development today announced an agreement with Knowledge Partner International, LLC (KPI), a thought leader in the field of decision management, business rules and business logic, to offer to its client base a new course called Decision Modeling Essentials.

KPI’s managing partners Barbara von Halle and Larry Goldberg are the co-authors of the bestselling book “The Decision Model – A Business Logic Framework Linking Business and Technology” (Taylor & Francis LLC, 2009). The Decision Model describes a new and highly efficient way of eliciting, organizing, managing and testing Business Logic that today is the most successful and fastest growing methodology in the field of decision modeling and business rules.

As a KPI training partner, B2T will work very closely with the originators of The Decision Model to offer its clients a powerful extension of its existing training course portfolio.

“We are very excited about the benefits that our partnership with B2T is providing to both of our companies’ clients” said Barbara von Halle, Managing Partner of KPI, “the B2T team of seasoned trainers, business analysis experts, and BABOK® veterans proves again that they feel the pulse of our industry, know what Business Analysts want, and are hosting training classes offering a competitive edge.”

“Kupe” Kupersmith, President of B2T said “The Decision Modeling Essentials course introduces students to what we believe is the next evolutionary step that comes after conventional Business Rules Management. At B2T we are interested in working with the thought leaders in areas that are relevant for the business analysis professional. Being able to offer a course authored and certified by the originators of The Decision Model is a great addition to our program.”

The first public Decision Modeling Essentials training course is scheduled in Atlanta, Ga on April 10, 2012. Register today!
