The Curse of the IT Drive-Thru Window

Presented by

Doug Tedder, Tedder Consulting LLC

About this talk

In an effort to become easier-to-do-business-with, many IT organizations have stood up a “Service Catalog” within their ITSM tool. And frankly, it’s a very consumer-friendly and effective way to capture and manage requests - without the consumer having to contact the service desk. But if that “Service Catalog” reads like a drive-thru menu at a fast food restaurant, you may not be helping your company leverage one of its most strategic assets – its IT capability. In fact, you may be sending a message to your company that you are not intending. What is that message? “Welcome to IT. May I take your order please?” Shouldn’t IT be more than just an “order taker”? Shouldn’t a Service Catalog reflect the results of strategic investments and decisions made by the business about its use of IT, and not read like a drive-thru window menu? Join Doug Tedder for what may be an eye-opening look at how your Service Catalog may be sending the wrong message to your company – and what you can do to change that – and still provide that easy, friendly way to interact with your consumers.
