  • Using COBIT to Enable Continual Improvement of ITSM Processes
    Using COBIT to Enable Continual Improvement of ITSM Processes Pam Erskine, Principal Consultant & IT Transformation Strategist Recorded: Sep 21 2017 40 mins
    Many organizations are using the ITIL framework in their day to day operations. Often, the processes are implemented but they rarely offer the value that was expected. The COBIT 5 framework has evolved from a practice used by auditors to a framework that is focused on governance and management of IT with many uses across the enterprise. In this presentation, we’ll look at how key areas of the COBIT framework can enable the continuous improvement of the ITSM processes that really matter to IT and the business. We’ll also look at real world examples of how the framework is applied to create a repeatable approach for understanding process capability and enabling continual improvement of ITSM processes.

  • Thinking from the ‘Outside In’ in ITSM
    Thinking from the ‘Outside In’ in ITSM Ian MacDonald, ITIL Consultant, Trainer and Author Recorded: Sep 21 2017 47 mins
    The commercial success of the IT service provider is based on its ability to provide customers with affordable, high quality IT services that provide good value for money.

    The paradox is that the provision of affordable, high quality IT services may not be perceived as providing value and value for money by the customer if their service expectations have not been satisfied and their perceptions of the IT service provider have not been positively influenced.

    Where customers don’t recognise the value provided then you become a cost which is a precarious position to be in.

    The IT service management strategy needs to recognise that it needs a strategic approach that positively responds to the needs and expectations of their customers and provide the platform to ensure customers ‘see and feel’ the value and value for money provided.

    In this session we consider the best strategic approach to achieve this.

    This session will provide learning and guidance on:-

    •The concepts of value in all its forms
    •Customer expectations of the IT service provider (over and above meeting service commitments)
    •Understanding the strategic approaches of Inside Out vs Outside In
    •The benefits of taking a balanced approach to In shaping your ITSM strategy
    •Defining an ‘Outside In’ strategy framework
    •Practical guidance on how to implement an ‘Outside In’ approach within ITSM

Change needs to happen and one of the key elements of change is automation applied to the process areas. In this session, Anthony will explain common challenges and how to automate ITIL for service performance enhancement.
