Thinking out of the IT box

Mark Smalley with special guests Aale Roos, Robina Chatham and Paul Wilkinson
This presentation explores the responsibilities on the business side of the demand-supply chain, offering guidance to IT Service Consumers as to how to get more out of IT. The key message for IT Service Providers is that if they neglect to develop the relationship with the business, they’ll only get a marginal improvement. This presentation gets you thinking outside the IT box and introduces the process framework and best practices from the Business Information Services Library (BiSL).
•Recognition that business people think and act differently than (most) IT people
•Realization that you need more business knowledge and business empathy in order to collaborate more effectively
•Recognition that the business has its own responsibilities and thoughts on how you can help the business to fulfil their part of the bargain
•Insight into the BiSL process framework that compliments ITIL

  • Higher Ed SIG | Communications Management: Promoting the Value of Your Services Recorded: Feb 24 2015 48 mins
    ITIL emphasizes the alignment of IT services with the business, integrating processes and improving communications. Yet, it doesn’t emphasize the need for a communication plan. Have you considered defining a communication plan for your department?

    Creating a communications plan for your IT organization will help define communication efforts so that your message is consistent and the value of your services is clearly articulated. In this session, learn how a communication plan can change your company’s perception of IT, enable you to promote your value, keep you on the same page as your leadership team, and keep your department aligned with the company’s goals.

    Participants will learn how to create a communications plan that leverages social media and how to use the communication plan to convince management of the importance of sending a consistent message. You will leave this session with the tools to emulate the best marketing companies in the world, right from your IT shop.

  • Higher Ed SIG | CSI for Beating a Dead Horse – What are your Metrics? Recorded: Dec 18 2014 60 mins
    IT measurements are meaningless if they don’t provide information to make accurate and timely decisions. Yet many IT organizations produce reams of operational reports that provide tons of information yet still leave everyone blind as to what actions to take or whether IT benefits are truly being realized. This session provides a solid practical approach for closing the loop between what kinds of metrics should be reported on and how IT can leverage results and a program of continual service improvement for effective decision making. As a result of this session, attendees will learn about what kinds of metrics matter most and how these fit into an overall model for making key decisions. In addition, attendees will get access to a simple EXCEL-based metrics model that they can use right away within their own IT organization.

  • Creating a BRM Maturity Assessment Recorded: Jul 14 2014 33 mins
    Is the BRM role strategic, tactical, operational, or some combination of the three? And how do you determine how well you are fulfilling that role?

    As part of the BRM team within his organization, Bob took on the task of developing a BRM specific Maturity Assessment, which would take into account BRM responsibilities as documented within his company, as described in industry white papers and articles, and as formally defined within ITIL.

    Bob will highlight the process they took to define and categorize the BRM responsibilities, establish maturity levels that reflected realistic measures for progress and milestones, and then evaluate the team’s level of maturity within each area.

    Bob offers this as a launching point for discussion within your organization on how to define and measure the role of Business Relationship Management, not to establish a definitive BRM Model that would apply in all situations.
  • Higher Ed SIG - Simplifying Request Fulfillment Using a Basic SRM Recorded: Jun 17 2014 50 mins
    Many organizations and tool providers use their Incident Management process to fulfill service requests. Depending on the size and complexity of your organization, a separate work stream and process for Request Fulfillment might be justified to handle high volume, pre-approved, standard, repeatable requests.

    This session will discuss the current state of Request Fulfillment at Miami University. In an environment where over 430 applications and systems are supported, a "one size fits most" model was adopted that allowed for standardization of request models so that service requests could be fulfilled correctly the first time.

  • Problem Management SIG - Metrics for Problem Mangement Recorded: Jun 4 2014 61 mins
    To borrow a passage from “The Definitive Guide to IT Service Metrics”, In order for any metric to provide benefit, we must understand our goals and expectations for the metric rooted in the success of the process, service or product we are measuring. Metrics are the source of valuable information for any organization and can provide an abundance of benefits, including:

    •Demonstrating organizational maturity
    •Driving and changing behavior of the organization and staff
    •Discovering opportunities for improvement
    •Justification for change and the cost of change
Connect, Learn, Grow
itSMF USA is the definitive & authoritative source for the advancement of IT Service Management best practices.
