Higher Ed SIG: The Power of Metrics for Optimal ITSM Performance; “Metricity – E

Malcolm Fry with host Hillary Rosenfeld
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.

  • Sutter Health is a not-for-profit health system serving more than 100 communities in Northern California. Each year its 5,000 physicians care for more than 10 million outpatient visits and discharge more than 200,000 in-patients.

    IT measurements are meaningless if they don’t provide information to make accurate and timely decisions. Yet many IT organizations produce reams of operational reports that provide tons of information yet still leave everyone blind as to what actions to take or whether IT benefits are truly being realized. This session provides a solid practical approach for closing the loop between what kinds of metrics should be reported on and how IT can leverage results and a program of continual service improvement for effective decision making. As a result of this session, attendees will learn about what kinds of metrics matter most and how these fit into an overall model for making key decisions. In addition, attendees will get access to a simple EXCEL-based metrics model that they can use right away within their own IT organization.

  • Creating a BRM Maturity Assessment Recorded: Jul 14 2014 33 mins
    Bob Grinsell
    Is the BRM role strategic, tactical, operational, or some combination of the three? And how do you determine how well you are fulfilling that role?

    As part of the BRM team within his organization, Bob took on the task of developing a BRM specific Maturity Assessment, which would take into account BRM responsibilities as documented within his company, as described in industry white papers and articles, and as formally defined within ITIL.

    Bob will highlight the process they took to define and categorize the BRM responsibilities, establish maturity levels that reflected realistic measures for progress and milestones, and then evaluate the team’s level of maturity within each area.

    Bob offers this as a launching point for discussion within your organization on how to define and measure the role of Business Relationship Management, not to establish a definitive BRM Model that would apply in all situations.
