Since IT is primarily “Knowledge Work” it’s critical we understand our productivity vs. the value we create. Time is the key factor in calculating productivity. It is also important to know what value-added vs. non-value activities consume our time.
Leading organizations are tapping into a new Lean IT measurement model to better understand how to measure throughput, efficiency, effectiveness and quality of ITSM services.
There are three common measurement constraints:
1. What to measure for value creation, alignment and operational excellence.
2. Interpreting results. Many lack the skills and methods required to analyze metrics data to support corrective or preventative action.
3. Getting/trusting data. Underlying data collections systems are not designed to support analytical methods required for management decision making and/or are not trustworthy.
This session is about how savvy IT managers are implementing a new Lean IT monitoring and metrics and ITSM.
In 45 minutes we’ll cover:
What’s Lean all about
How Lean maximizes customer value by minimizing waste

According to Econsultancy’s 2014 email marketing census, 36 per cent of marketers cite poor measurement and analytics as barriers to effective email marketing. They know that the right metrics will drive the right business results but while the essential metrics (delivered, opened, clicked or click to open) have served us well, they are not necessarily the ultimate measure over a period of time.
In this webinar Skip Fidura of dotmailer takes a look at:
How marketers can measure engagement though 'click and open reach' and 'dwell (or read) time'.
The term 'the halo effect', how it can be measured and how it's in line with multichannel marketing measurement.
The 'post click funnel' metric and making sure your campaign assessment isn't incomplete.
How to examine your 'time of action' which will drive tests and improvements.
Today’s marketing meetings are often full of people citing ratios, metrics and numbers. These metrics have evolved from the very simple notion of counting website visitors, to prospect conversion rates, to cost per lead, to cost per click, to conversion rates, etc. There is now a serious risk of blinding people with science. All of this detail is useful and has its place, but a CMO needs to be able to communicate the ROI on their investments in a clear & simple way that is easy to track.Read more >

According to Gartner, 80 percent of companies around the world only measure results. Often they don’t know what impacted these results, or what is best done to improve them going forward. That’s because there’s a major gap between the information executives want and the information they get.
