Is Continual Service Improvement (CSI) an afterthought at your organization? Has CSI implementation taken a “back seat” to other ITSM processes? What happens to all of the good ideas that the ITSM team comes up with as processes are designed and tools are implemented? What about improvements suggested from business partners? In this session, Doug Tedder discusses how the CSI Register can be just the means to a beginning of a culture and approach to Continual Improvement.

Mark Smalley, the IT Paradigmologist and DASA Global Ambassador
With all this sexy Digital Transformation, Agile and DevOps stuff going on, good old IT Service Management is in a bit of a rut. Somewhere far from the business in the bureaucratic basement, still waging (un)civil IT wars with their archenemies, the evil developers. The IT Paradigmologist explores three escape routes: enterprise-oriented service management, broader but technology-centric IT management, and user-oriented information management. Or staying put and going digital?
Greg Tucker - Service Management Architect, Ayearon Inc
By 2019, it has become clear that traditional service management frameworks haven’t kept pace with the industry. Practices that were unproven, but nonetheless widely accepted (if not adopted), have lost the veneer of “good” or “best” practice.
Meanwhile, new frameworks have been introduced in the last few years that promise to address new challenges and opportunities. What should managers do with these? How far should organizations go to adopt these new practices?
This presentation will address these questions, and also look at the state of the ITSM tools market at the end of 2018.

Simon Dorst, Michelle Major-Goldsmith - Kinetic IT
As Stephen Covey said “There are three constants in life... change, choice and principles”
Recent years have seen an explosion of different service management practices, leaving organizations confused about the best way forward. What is the best approach for building a service management model?
Michelle Major-Goldsmith and Simon Dorst will discuss the basic background, benefits and pitfalls of common ITSM practices like ITIL, SIAM, Agile and VeriSM. Focus will be on a clear distinction of what each of these practices brings to an organisation and provide some advice on both where to start defining a service management model and how to consider integrating the latest best and enabling practices as they evolve.

You want to benefit from cloud. You want to benefit from Agile, ITSM and DevOps. You want to save money. You create a programme and move your services and applications to some cloudy world. Whether it is hybrid or all someone else’s have you considered the impacted on your overall processes, all of your internal staff, your customers, regulators and suppliers?
We find that many consider some of these but few look at the entire spectrum. Cloud is a great thing, especially when viewed from the lens of integrating your service with great management (SIAM). Please join Steve Morgan, Director SynaidIT and SIAM-ITSM coach & mentor, and Daniel Breston, Principal Consultant Virtual Clarity & DevOps ITSM blender, as we discuss (argue) the good, bad, great of SIAM in the Cloudy world.

IT service management (ITSM) is evolving rapidly as more and more enterprises pursue digital transformation. At the same time, cyber security threats are growing in number, sophistication, and impact on the operations, revenues, and reputations of victimized companies. Meanwhile, at too many companies, service and security management are still operating in separate silos, with cooperation happening only after a threat becomes a successful breach.
How best to move to a structure in which service and security management are integrated, proactive enablers and accelerators of your business?
At many companies, this is one of the goals driving an increased focus on security operations, or SecOps. But there are technological, cultural, and organizational challenges to your efforts to bring IT service management and security management closer together.
Join Industry experts Michael Dortch, Mike Bombard for a stimulating and informative discussion of these challenges and how companies are addressing them successfully. You’ll learn things you can do now to improve both service and security management at your company.

In recent years the IT landscape and traditional IT model has changed significantly. The fundamental cause of this shift is cloud computing and the latest in digital technologies. New ways of working such as DevOps, Lean and Agile are now being used to achieve the scalability, flexibility and innovation provided by the cloud model and digital technologies. However, it is very evident that many organisations and IT professionals still do not know the basic fundamentals of cloud or digital.
If the IT Service Management (ITSM) community want to remain relevant in today’s new IT landscape they need to fully understand what cloud is and become leaders and trusted advisors in their organisation an all matters relating to cloud and digital.
Join leading ITSM and Digital experts, Mark O’Loughlin and Daniel Breston, as they discuss the opportunities and challenges faced by IT Service Management in relation to Cloud and Digital Technologies

What is mentoring? What’s the difference between coaching and mentoring? Is mentoring relevant to my organization? What are the strategies and benefits?
Mentoring is a cost efficient and trusted solution to many of the problems surrounding communication and staff development within an organization.
All new members of staff, regardless of seniority, should have an appointed mentor to assist in the induction process; the need for ongoing support with all aspects of practice is particularly important for success and happiness!
This session will seek to debunk the confusion and uncertainty that often surrounds a developmental mentoring role, outlining clearly the responsibilities of the mentor and mentee and highlighting what is to be avoided. Coaching techniques and their appropriateness will be investigated, alongside how to apply these in an agile environment, finishing with strategies on how to embed a mentoring scheme and the benefits for individuals, team and organization!

There is a considerable hype about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its potential impact on humanity. For some, it is the best thing since sliced bread, bringing eternal leisure and world peace; for others, it is doomsday accelerated, where humanity will either become extinct and machines take over the world or it becomes slaves to the robots.
In this presentation, we will cover an overview of what AI’s capabilities are today, where it may lead us, and what we need to take into consideration in service management of AI. Furthermore, we will present a service management model that shows realistic perspectives on what AI’s capabilities can and cannot be. This leads to conclusions about whether AI is a threat to humanity or not.
This is a rescheduled webcast due to technical issues with the first attempt.
In this presentation, we break down 7 key reasons why VSI will inherently improve the effectiveness of your QA and Testing practice. Inspired by Matt Angerer’s trials and tribulations as a Program Testing Consultant for over 8 vertical markets and 10 end-to-end SAP implementations, this presentation is a no-nonsense action-packed roadmap to understanding VSI, but to also apply it immediately for lasting results.
