Higher Ed SIG: The Power of Metrics for Optimal ITSM Performance; “Metricity – E
Malcolm Fry with host Hillary Rosenfeld
About this talk
In everyday life, measurement is an essential component; how big? How far? How high? What’s the time? What’s the cost? But what is good measurement & how can it impact performance when aiming to exceed targets?
ITSM has access to a phenomenal amount of data, which can be translated into information to create knowledge. Learning how to harness knowledge begins with learning how to apply wisdom in order to achieve optimal ITSM performance. For this we will look in depth at the 2011 Edition metrics for Incident, Problem, Change & Service Desk. To this end you will learn:
•A review of the roles of data, information, knowledge & wisdom & the joint role they play in endorsing the power of metrics for optimal performance.
•How the same metrics can be viewed from a different angle. We will investigate a hierarchy of metrics using Maslow’s Hierarchy of Human Needs as our inspiration.
•We will discuss Critical Success Factors & Key Performance Indicators which used properly can be an immensely powerful tool used wrongly will lead you down a yellow brick leading nowhere.
•Using the ITIL 2011 Edition publications we will review how the metrics for Incident, Problem, Change & Service Desk are addressed in the ITIL 2011 Edition publications.
