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

Lead Success, Don't Manage Failure!

Embarking on the Service Management path requires executives to be fully committed to the cultural transformation they are asking of their organization. They must be active participants in that journey much like the captain of ship in rough waters. They cannot be bystanders mailing in instructions from afar on how to avoid the turbulent waters, an approach that will surely run the ship aground.

In our session, we will discuss some challenges that organizations encounter when implementing a Service Management strategy while identifying tell tale signs of where a program might be going astray. We will talk about how crafting the delicate balance between People, Process and Technology can be the difference between success and failure. Lastly, we will review some tactics that will help to avoid making classic and typically fatal program mistakes.

  • Cybersecurity, It’s Not Just for IT Anymore Oct 30 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Dave Hatter, Cyber Security Consultant, Intrust IT
    Cyberattacks are increasing in frequency, sophistication and impact. Recent cybercrime statistics are eye-opening:

    The University of Maryland reported that an attack happens every 39 seconds on average, affecting one in three Americans every year
    Ransomware costs have risen 184% from $12,762 to $36,295 in Q2 2019 according to a Coveware study
    The FBI reported Business Email Compromise (BEC) is a $26 billion dollar enterprise
    89% of breaches had a financial or espionage motive according to the Verizon 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report.
    SCORE reported that 43% of attacks are on SMBs,
    Unfortunately, EVERY organization and individual is a target, and as technology becomes increasingly important in our personal and professional lives, the attack surface grows. IBM CEO Ginni Rometty recently said cybercrime is “the greatest threat to every profession, every industry, every company in the world', and former FBI Director James Comey said

    “There are two kinds of companies in the United States. There are those who’ve been hacked ... and those who don’t know they’ve been hacked.” In this webinar, you'll get concrete tips and actionable information that will help you improve your personal and professional cybersecurity posture so that you, your organization and your family don't become another statistic.

  • ITIL 4 vs ITIL v3 – From CSI to CI ​ Recorded: Jun 20 2019 53 mins
    Allen Ureta
    ITIL v3 introduced Continual Service Improvement (CSI) as a service lifecycle stage that identifies and implements improvements across service strategy, service design, service transition and service operation. This approach has been successfully used to transform organizations and provide a framework to plan, engage and improve the people, products, partners and products necessary to achieve organizational objectives. ITIL 4 maintains the importance of Continual Improvement to the overall Service Management System (SVS) with some updates to modern thinking. Applying a multi-dimensional view, along with an integrated system for value co-creation, enablement and delivery, ITIL 4 re-introduces Continual Improvement as both a model for improvement and a general management practice. This session will discuss hot ITIL 4 guiding principles continue to be used as part of the Service Value Chain to deliver value to customers and consumers.

  • Lean and DevOps: All in the Family Recorded: Oct 30 2018 62 mins
    Mike Orzen, President, Mike Orzen & Associates, Inc. Niels Loader, Partner & Principal Consultant an Quint Wellington Redwood
    ‘DevOps’ has become a magic word in IT. But what is DevOps, really? And what is its relationship to Lean IT and Agile? Two key experts who are furthering adoption and development of the DevOps Agile Skills Association (DASA), Mike Orzen and Niels Loader, attempt to clear up any confusion as they review a brief history of DevOps.

    In this day and age, it is almost impossible to open a website, article or publication about IT without coming across DevOps. It seems to be defining the current state of development of the IT industry. It is also one of the most misunderstood and misused terms today. DevOps is a label we have devised to describe the journey of the IT industry towards the application of Lean principles to the delivery of IT services and customer value.

    This session offers a loosely scripted conversation between two thought leaders in the DevOps community in which they explore the relationship between Lean, Agile and DevOps.

    Accidental CSI - "Did I Do Thaaaat? (in your best “Steve Urkle” voice)
    Are you doing Continual Service Improvement by ACCIDENT??? Do you think you are not doing Continual Service Improvement (CSI), or not doing it well? What if you found out that you ARE doing CSI, but just don't realize it? If you think that you don't have time to improve, or have no idea where to start, and cannot get management buy-in and sponsorship to begin CSI, then this session is for you! Don’t let your service quality be held back because CSI is too hard to get started.
    This session will cover identifying areas in your organization where CSI is “brewing”, how to make those areas relevant to your CSI needs, and how to develop a CSI Roadmap. We will discuss the "low hanging fruit" of CSI, how to identify where you are ACCIDENTALLY doing CSI, and how to make it PURPOSEFUL CSI. Then you can say, “YES! I did thaaaaaat!’
    A PURPOSEFUL Roadmap approach to Continual Service Improvement

  • Unlock the Hidden Treasure – Justifying Problem Management Recorded: Aug 9 2018 64 mins
    Bob Rice
    Problem management is the hidden treasure of Service Management. It is key to ensuring reducing the cost of IT services, improving the value of IT services, and improving customer satisfaction. But how do you justify investing in problem management?

    Too frequently problem management is understood as something that must be done when things really get bad, or when a customer is screaming because of a failure somewhere else, or as a “last resort” when no one knows what else to do.

    In reality, problem management is key to improving the performance of IT and improving the customer’s view of IT’s true capabilities, whether related to technology, applications developed in-house, software, cloud services, etc. You name it, problem management has a role.

    This session will cover:
    •Investigating the hidden treasure – What does it take to get problem management “off the ground”; the who, what, where, when and why of problem management

    •Searching for the hidden treasure – Gather your team and start mapping metrics for problem management
    •Digging up the hidden treasure – How to start - the approach to implementing problem management
    •Protecting the hidden treasure – Retain the value - keeping the momentum with problem management

  • Unguarded – A Roadmap For Cyber-Security Improvement Recorded: Jun 28 2018 57 mins
    Randy Steinberg
    The IT infrastructure management landscape is rapidly changing. Much of what IT used to support, build and deliver on premises is moving up into the Cloud. IT services are moving up and out of the data center and access to these services is moving beyond the four walls of the business. New technologies and devices are spreading and stretching when and where IT services can be used (e.g. Internet of Things). While the shift towards more agile and flexible delivery channels for IT services is creating new business opportunities, it is also creating new business challenges for securing the IT infrastructure and delivering those services safely. How are IT organizations meeting this challenge? What strategies are organizations employing? What technologies, processes and organization changes are taking place to keep the business safe? Learn some answers to these questions and leave with ideas and a roadmap to secure your own IT Infrastructure.
