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

Why are humans the best sensors for ITSM?

Human feelings and experiences of IT services will always be the most reliable indicator for experience. Human-centric IT puts your end-users are at the centre of every single service that is delivered, and essentially, is your target market for deliverables.

In this episode of Happy in 15, Sami and Pasi dig deeper into Human-Centric IT and what it means to have Humans as sensors when looking for feedback and improvements, across all IT Touchpoints.

It is never too late to start your Experience Management journey, but it is better to start sooner than later. Your end-users are already having these experiences daily. The sooner you take this approach, the quicker you can start increasing their efficiency and productivity.

  • Steps to creating Human Centric IT, with BioMérieux Sep 30 2021 4:00 pm UTC 16 mins
    Pasi Nikkanen (CGO)
    Human-Centric IT is a topic we frequently talk about in ITSM and IT Service Delivery. Human-Centric IT puts your end-users at the centre of Experience Management and all IT touchpoints. However, wouldn't it be great if there was an example of a companies journey to creating this kind of culture?

    Oh wait, there is!

    BioMérieux is a French multinational biotechnology company, which has existed for over 50 years. Their end-user base ranges from young tech-savvy new starters to employees who have been with the company since the beginning. BioMérieux wanted to improve how they deliver IT Services to their diverse end-user base and to implement Human-Centric IT.

    Pasi speaks with Dominique Raphanel, Global IS, Support & User Experience Manager for bioMérieux on their journey.

  • Ticket Bouncing - the most impactful ITIL metric? Recorded: Sep 16 2021 15 mins
    Pasi Nikkanen (CGO)
    Ticket bouncing, commonly known as ticket reassignment, is where an IT incident or request ticket is passed from one team to another, before its resolution.

    This has a dramatic effect on lost work time for the end-user, as well as happiness, productivity, resulting in greater costs and reduced business value. In fact, it has such an effect that we believe this could be one of the most important ITIL metrics to improve.

    In this episode, Pasi divulges how HappySignals measures the impact of reassignment counts on happiness, productivity and cost, as well as customer testimonials from Refinitiv on how they approach this major conundrum many businesses face.

  • Motivate your Service Desk, through Experience Management Recorded: Sep 9 2021 15 mins
    Pasi Nikkanen (CGO)
    Typically, Service Desk agents are heavily demotivated due to receiving an influx of negative feedback, typically due to the SLA metrics that they are contractually bound to.
    However, when taking Experience Management into use, we have discovered that 82% of feedback the Service Desk receives is Positive.

    There are many challenges that Experience Management overcome, such as:
    - Only sharing negative feedback
    - Not using Experience data
    - Limited access for stakeholders to see Service Desk results
    - Not connected, restricting information in able to improve problem areas

    In this episode of Happy in 15, Pasi and Sami discuss why Experience Management is for the whole company, including your Service Desk and how taking this way of working into practice will motivate your Service Desk.

    We also hear from Marte Thorbjønsen, the Director of IT Core Operations for Wilhelmsen group, on how they moved from inhouse Service Desk to an Outsourced Service Desk, and how they introduced both penalties and rewards into their agreements in order to get the most out of their new Service Partners.

    Pasi Nikkanen (CGO)
    Do you have many people working in remote places where the IT walk-in experience is unavailable? Do some of you end-users feel like they are missing out on certain IT services that others are receiving?

    Sophos had this exact challenge. Specific end-users in remote locations, in countries where IT HQ was unavailable, were desperate to receive the walk-in experience for IT Incidents and Requests. After discovering this was a problem, Sophos worked on how to replicate this experience to all of their end-users - creating a Virtual Tech bar.

  • Traditional SLAs; Should I remove them? Recorded: Aug 26 2021 16 mins
    Pasi Nikkanen (CGO)
    Experience Level Agreements (XLAs) are the topic everyone's talking about. But does this mean you should be removing your ‘set in stone’ SLAs and replacing them?

    SLAs have been labelled differently by ITSM thought leaders over recent years, bringing the question of whether or not they are serving a purpose to your IT organisation, or whether they are actually producing more harm than good.

    Sami, an avid supporter for removing SLAs, discusses with Pasi the importance of using the right metric for measurement - SLAs measure the process, XLAs measure the outcome and value.

    Furthermore, in this episode, we hear from Marte Thorbjønsen, the Director of IT Core Operations for Wilhelmsen group, and the decisions to remove SLA measurements from their Chat measurement.

    And if you thought that’s all we could get into a 15-minute episode, we also hear from XLA Collab CEO, Alan Nance, discussing HappySignals Global IT Experience Benchmark report data on the impact of including rewards in your agreements with your Service Desk, instead of SLAs and sanctions.
