This review is from: Agile Data Warehouse Design: Collaborative Dimensional Modeling, from Whiteboard to Star Schema (Paperback)
Corr & Stagnitto have applied the essence of Agile - process light, rapid prototyping - to the issue of Data Model design in an intuitive and easy to follow manner.
The beauty of the approach for me, as is outlined with remarkable clarity in the book, is the bringing together of the business users in the process, and early in the process at that to help derive business insight.
Well worth a read. As someone who has faced that "process gap" - where you need knowledge of the business and of good data modelling design - at the same time - this provides an easy first step approach to addressing that issue.
The book itself provides a number of well thought out examples to illustrate the approach as well as a library of further resources and links - including to Lawrence's own site where you can download the templates referred to within.
