What Our Clients Say

“Thanks for the thoughtful reply to the previous post and for sharing these models. There is such subtlety to data modeling and traps we as modelers fall into without realizing it that cause problems. I had never before considered roles could be derivable, nor had I considered that ‘conceptual’ data model could be an oxymoron. I know I had struggled greatly with defining what a ‘conceptual’ model is and you have helped explain why!”

“Thanks a lot for the immediate response. For the first time in my life, I have a clear explanation of the difference between procedure and process because of your precise vocabulary of Functions Vs Mechanisms. “

“I couldn’t wait so got started on the Functional modelling book. I’m half way through now and it makes a lot of practical sense. You’re examples are clear, straightforward and easy to follow. Why does so much BA training mystify these straightforward tasks?”

“The Integrated Modelling Method makes business analysis and modelling simple, yet very powerful. Its emphasis on modelling what the business OUGHT to be doing helps our students organise their thoughts and better know what information to extract from the stakeholders.
Having the Function Catalogue as the core model enables the entire business to be easily modelled without the clutter of process models and DFDs. Additionally, all models are clear, transparent, easy to understand and to explain.

Our students are going to benefit hugely from this and be able to achieve far higher quality with a lot less effort.”

“In developing the Integrated Modelling Method, John Owens brought together the very best modelling techniques in a totally innovative way that adds immense value to each one.  The integration that IMM™ provides, which is unique among modelling methods, brings simplicity, elegance and power to the world of business analysis and modelling.

Using this IMM in business will result, not only in higher quality models at a much reduced cost, but will also give real business benefits such as simpler day-to-day processes and faster system development times.”

“The Integrated Modelling Method is probably the most imaginative approach to business analysis and modelling that I have seen. John Owens has built an international reputation for delivering real business benefits in all the work he has done in enterprises of all sizes.

He has a gift for seeing the simplicity hidden in the complexity of any business and bringing it to the surface. By developing the Integrated Modelling Method he has given this power to all business analysts and business managers.

The benefits to be had from using the Integrated Modelling Method are not a theory, they are a reality.”

“Integrated Modelling Method provides us with access to a coherent set of resources for students who are going through the modelling process for the first time.

Our previous experience with tools for teaching business modelling and data modelling tended to separate these two techniques.

The Integrated Modelling Method has enabled us to show the students how they are fully integrated.”
