Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Past and Present: 25 Years of Service Desk KPIs

Service desk KPIs have evolved and matured significantly over the past two decades. Today’s service desks routinely track twenty or more KPIs, and the focus has shifted from tactical/operational metrics to the more strategic metrics of business value and ROI. In this session, you’ll take a journey through the past and explore twenty-five years of service desk benchmarking data. Attendees will learn about the most common service desk KPIs, changing averages in service desk performance, the evolution of KPIs, the holistic discipline of performance measurement and management, and what today’s KPIs tell us about the future.

  • The Zen of Support! Recorded: Nov 8 2016 63 mins
    Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner at MetricNet
    The words “Customer Support” and “Customer Service” accurately describe the role of Service Desk and Desktop Support Professionals. Unfortunately, these words sometimes carry negative connotations, and do not accurately convey the strategic potential of user support. The fact is very few support organizations operate in a Strategic Paradigm. The result is that most do not fully exploit the inherent leverage of user support to achieve a competitive advantage for IT.

    In this session Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner at MetricNet, will discuss what it means to be a Strategic Support organization, and provide case study examples of support organizations that operate in a Strategic Support Paradigm.

    Attendees of this webcast will learn:

    •Three Sources of Leverage in a Strategic Support Organization

  • Optimizing the Tradeoff: Cost vs. Quality in IT Service and Support Recorded: Jul 19 2016 64 mins
    Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner at MetricNet
    Cost vs. quality: It’s a perennial issue in technical service and support. Drive your costs too low, and you risk sacrificing the quality of service. Conversely, if you push quality too high (yes, that’s possible!), then you drive your costs through the roof. Understanding the cost/quality tradeoff is the most critical step toward optimizing your support model.

    Using data from more than 300 benchmarks worldwide, Jeff Rumburg will illustrate how top-performing service and support organizations strike an appropriate balance between the cost of service delivery and the quality of support provided. He’ll share simple yet powerful techniques that will enable organizations to pinpoint their position on the cost vs. quality curve, determine if higher (or lower) quality is justified, reduce costs without sacrificing quality, and improve quality without increasing costs.

    Finally, he’ll share an interactive scorecard that organizations can use to determine whether service and support has been optimized, and, if it hasn’t, to identify the tangible steps needed to achieve an optimized support model.

  • The Role of IT Leadership in Service and Support Recorded: Apr 19 2016 64 mins
    Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner at MetricNet
    As the gateway to IT for most end users, service and support is the biggest driver of customer satisfaction and can generate a tremendous return on investment. IT leaders and managers who ignore these facts do so at their own peril, for the simple truth is this: the success and longevity of an IT management team are directly tied to the success of service and support. In this session, Jeff Rumburg will use benchmarking data and case studies to demonstrate the untapped value of all service and support organizations.
  • Service and Support as a Business Recorded: Mar 15 2016 64 mins
    Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner at MetricNet
    Most IT professionals are familiar with the operational metrics of service and support. KPIs such as cost per ticket, first contact resolution rate, and mean time to resolve are well understood and almost universally applied. Yet even support organizations that have mastered these metrics and achieved a degree of operational success often struggle to gain visibility and credibility within their own enterprise. The all-too-common result is that service and support operates at a subsistence level, and lacks the necessary resources to deliver effective levels of support.

    The business world offers a potential solution to this dilemma. When a business is not performing well, investments in the business dry up because there is no reasonable expectation of earning a profit. By contrast, businesses that are profitable receive adequate funding because they are able to attract investment capital seeking a positive return. So what would happen if IT service and support organizations began operating more like businesses, and were able to attract funding and other resources based upon their profitability?

    In this presentation Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner at MetricNet, reveals an approach for managing IT service and support as a business. Additionally, he proposes a handful of business metrics that can be used to quantify and communicate the profitability of service and support. Finally, he discusses the need to adopt a paradigm shift for any service and support organization that aspires to realize the benefits of operating as a true business.

  • The High Performance Support Organization - Benchmarking Data from the Industry Recorded: Dec 8 2015 64 mins

    The High Performance Support Organization - Benchmarking Data from the Industry's Top Performers

    Benchmarking is a well-established tool for measuring and managing service and support performance. Effective benchmarking allows an organization to quantify the performance of its support desk, compare to others in the industry, identify performance gaps, and define the actions necessary to close the gaps.

    The power of benchmarking is that it enables a support organization to save enormous amounts of time and energy by building upon the know-how of the industry’s world-class performers. Support desks that focus exclusively on their internal operations tend to make progress incrementally, through trial-and-error, at an evolutionary pace. But benchmarking forces an organization to look externally – at the best-in-class. By studying the best-in-class, and selectively adopting practices from the best-of-the-best, service desks that utilize benchmarking are able to improve their performance at a revolutionary pace.

    In this webcast, Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner at MetricNet, will share benchmarking data synthesized from literally hundreds of IT service and support benchmarks. He will highlight and pinpoint the characteristics that are common to the industry’s most successful support organizations. You will learn how these world-class competitors achieved industry leadership in days or weeks, not months or years, and how they sustain their competitive advantage to remain at the top of the industry.
