    Every end user in your company plays a part in successfully helping IT adopt new best practices such as ITIL, SIAM, DevOps, etc. They use the new functionality that it delivered. They experience the delay in resolving a problem. They use a workaround when the IT service isn’t available. The end users are the ultimate beneficiaries of your services. Ignore them when you are implementing best practices and you’ll diminish the value of your initiative. Embrace them and you will improve customer satisfaction and your return on investment. In this session, we’ll explore how you can engage your end users to achieve a stronger result and create raving fans!

  • Using COBIT to Enable Continual Improvement of ITSM Processes Recorded: Sep 21 2017 40 mins
    Pam Erskine, Principal Consultant & IT Transformation Strategist
    Many organizations are using the ITIL framework in their day to day operations. Often, the processes are implemented but they rarely offer the value that was expected. The COBIT 5 framework has evolved from a practice used by auditors to a framework that is focused on governance and management of IT with many uses across the enterprise. In this presentation, we’ll look at how key areas of the COBIT framework can enable the continuous improvement of the ITSM processes that really matter to IT and the business. We’ll also look at real world examples of how the framework is applied to create a repeatable approach for understanding process capability and enabling continual improvement of ITSM processes.

  • Thinking from the ‘Outside In’ in ITSM Recorded: Sep 21 2017 47 mins
    Ian MacDonald, ITIL Consultant, Trainer and Author
    The commercial success of the IT service provider is based on its ability to provide customers with affordable, high quality IT services that provide good value for money.

    The paradox is that the provision of affordable, high quality IT services may not be perceived as providing value and value for money by the customer if their service expectations have not been satisfied and their perceptions of the IT service provider have not been positively influenced.

    Where customers don’t recognise the value provided then you become a cost which is a precarious position to be in.

    The IT service management strategy needs to recognise that it needs a strategic approach that positively responds to the needs and expectations of their customers and provide the platform to ensure customers ‘see and feel’ the value and value for money provided.

    In this session we consider the best strategic approach to achieve this.

    This session will provide learning and guidance on:-

    •The concepts of value in all its forms
    •Customer expectations of the IT service provider (over and above meeting service commitments)
    •Understanding the strategic approaches of Inside Out vs Outside In
    •The benefits of taking a balanced approach to In shaping your ITSM strategy
    •Defining an ‘Outside In’ strategy framework
    •Practical guidance on how to implement an ‘Outside In’ approach within ITSM

  • The Compelling Case for 'Swarming': an Intelligent Alternative to Tiered Support Recorded: May 17 2017 49 mins
    Paul M. Dooley HDI Faculty Member, ITIL Expert Optimal Connections, LLC
    The business and IT landscape is changing in significant ways...

    - Business are demanding continuous delivery of new and improved application functionality, as well as performance

    -To help meet this demand, new emerging best-practices such as Agile and DevOps have arrived on the scene, delivering continuous software changes into the live environment

    -The trend toward self-service continues, enabling end users to handle most of the simple issues themselves - engaging the service desk only when complex issues arise

    -Support issues are becoming increasing complex, driving the need for collaboration, and knowledge sharing across IT functional groups (many of which remain "siloed")

    -Customer and user expectations are rising in terms of higher uptime, and faster resolution to any issues

    Nevertheless, many IT organizations and support center continue to implement the traditional "tiered support model" in their service desk and support centers, composed of ...

    Tier 1 - the front line support team of generalists that tries to resolve most issues

    Tier 2 - a second line of specialists that tries to resolve the rest

    Tier 3 - a third line of very specialized developers, technicians, and
    supplier that deal with the most complex issues

    As a result of the dynamics in the changing business and IT environment, the tiered support model - although it has worked and been very popular over the past 30 years - is now coming up short. Many issues end up backlogged in ticket queues, resolution times drag out, costs continue to rise due to the magnitude of escalations, and customer/user satisfaction suffers.
