Evolving From A Help Desk To An ITIL Service Desk

Presented by

Phil Day, Chief, NIH IT Service Desk

About this talk

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is a very large, multi-faceted organization with a significant IT presence. A ten year veteran of the IT customer support industry, Phil will discuss his organization’s challenges, trials and tribulations, and successes as they evolved from a Help Desk to an IT Service Management focused Service Desk. Phil’s presentation covers: the transformation of their very large internal organization – what was the “before” picture and how they determined what needed to change; how they articulated a vision and set objectives; the process of creating buy-in from skeptical IT service partners and customers in adopting the necessary ITIL processes – what worked and why; the process used to select and implement the right tools to support the objectives; steps taken to “cement” a service-based climate and a summary of major improvements made that radically changed IT support.
