priSM is itSMF International’s (www.itsmfi.org) unified worldwide professional recognition and credentialing program for service management professionals.
priSM credentials demonstrate an individual’s ongoing commitment to developing their knowledge of service management theory and practice through a structured program of continual professional development (CPD) activities and recognition of their achievements as their career progresses.
David Clifford, Fellow in Service Management (FSM) and the President of priSM, will highlight some of the activities that contribute to CPD credits, such as LIG involvement. David will also share his experiences regarding why he applied to become a priSM credential holder and what it has taken to maintain the credential and the resulting benefits.
Learn how to improve your project success rate !
Improve your project success rate by leveraging Organizational Change best practices.
Time and again our projects fall short of intended goals due resistance to change.
Blaming the culture is valid but also a dangerous form of externalization.
When we blame culture we make the problem so big it becomes un-actionable for a mere mortal IT professional. We absolve ourselves from even trying to fix the problem and resign ourselves to our sub-optimal project practices, grit our teeth, hope for the best and dream about other companies where people apparently magically embrace Agile, LEAN DevOps without resisting.
Join this session as Paul challenges your thinking by presenting guidance taken from the ProSci organizational change management (OCM) best practice methodology.
Come away with actionable guidance on how to integrate OCM principles into your projects to maximize adoption.

"DevOps" is a term that has become mainstream enough to be hated, misunderstood, misused, and abused. But what is "DevOps"? And, more importantly, why should I care?
DevOps isn't a tool or a product. It's an approach to operations. By uniting development and operations teams to automate and standardize processes for infrastructure deployment, you get faster innovation, accelerated time to market, improved deployment quality, better operational efficiency, and more time to focus on your core business goals.
This presentation will explore the principles and forms of DevOps. I know DevOps when I see it and, soon, you will, too.
KEPNERandFOURIE will explain the problem solving processes specifically designed for the IT environment. They will focus on the application of these processes to real world IT issues in which they have been involved. K&F will explain the importance of finding the technical cause of a problem/incident before trying to determine the Root Cause. They will also highlight the RCA application developed in conjunction with ServiceNow and available in their App Store.Read more >
KEPNER-TREGOE will talk about the role of Root Cause Analysis in the context of IT support functions, the pressures they face as well as the goals and needs for specific results when deploying different RCA and troubleshooting techniques. Furthermore, they will discuss the challenges of adopting new skills in high-pressure, complex, process-driven service environments and ways to overcome the gap between the theory of training and on-the-job proficiency via coaching and simulation.Read more >

A successful process improvement strategy will first begin by leveraging the Continual Service Improvement (CSI) model:
•What is the vision?
•Where are we now?
•Where do we want to be?
•How do we get there?
•Did we get there?
•How do we keep the momentum going?
This presentation will provide a real life example of how to apply the CSI model in order to define a problem management improvement strategy. Joseph will discuss his improvement strategy and his approach of implementing process improvements to improve the maturity of problem management process. The goal is to share with other practitioners in the problem community of interest:

Frameworks, Standards and Models - What's Out There and Which Should I Use?
In the IT Governance environment there are multiple frameworks, models and standards to choose from. A challenge for most organizations is simply understanding what all of these are, and which ones are applicable or appropriate for them. Some common questions include: If we’re using ITIL, should we consider COBIT? How does Kepner Trego fit with ITIL? Will using Six Sigma compete with ITIL’s CSI? How does ISO 20000 leverage ITIL? In this insightful presentation on Frameworks, Standards, and Certifications explore the many models that are available today: what they are, how they fit, and why choose them. We’ll look at the essential information as well as the applicability of the following: ITIL, COBIT, SIX SIGMA, ISO20000, KEPNER TREGO, PRINCE2, AGILE, and TIPA to name a few.

Are you interested in knowing how an online shop is managing the logistics involved in delivering your order in time? Do you order your goods three days later if you see that its status is set to "unavailable"? Do you buy services which are described unclear and nebulous in your private life?
For many IT organizations, the Service Catalog is just the next CMDB nightmare. Yes, because the CMDB itself is simply a repository of relationships that has minimal value. The true value is in understanding how these relationships impact IT and business services.
But your Service Catalog Portal is your single point of information for your service customers. So tune in to this webinar as Martin Pscheidl, Chairman of itSMF Austria and Manager of the KPMG IT Advisory helps you see how taking both a bottom-up and top-down approach will help you reach the point which perfectly aligns with what your customer wants and needs.
Successful IT Service Management adoptions benefit from good dose of IT Governance. Both ITIL and COBIT are well-known for their best practices regarding these respective topics. However, where does one find the information to benefit from both worlds of best practices? This presentation will discuss how IT Governance best practices compliment and boost the adoption of IT Service Management best practices.
