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

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.

  • DevOps/Agile COI: Putting the "Ops" into "DevOps" Recorded: Apr 7 2016 62 mins
    Robert Stroud, John Clipp
    Please join the DevOps / Agile CoI for a BrightTalk Session, “Putting the “Ops” into “DevOps”, scheduled for 2PM EDT on Thursday, April 7, 2016.

    DevOps is the blending of tasks performed by a company's application development and systems operations teams in order to deliver on the IT promise of agility and elasticity to meet business demands. Unfortunately, to date, this has been more about accelerating “Dev” and less about the “Ops”. Agility and velocity does not mean the abandonment of good practices, rather mandates the transition of the ops role from one of managing physical infrastructure, to managing their infrastructure as code. To do so effectively, operations will build infrastructure as code, similar to the Dev community and leverage automation tools to facilitate transition to production using modern automation tools.

    Robert Stroud of Forrester who focused on the SDDC and IaC will discuss the impact of DevOps on your existing Change and Configuration management process and how you can leverage IaC and DevOps for agility and elasticity.

  • Enterprise DevOps – Lessons Learned Recorded: Jan 27 2016 61 mins
    John Clipp - Jason Walker
    Please join the DevOps / Agile CoI for a BrightTalk Session, “Enterprise DevOps – Lessons Learned”, scheduled for 1PM EST on Wednesday, January 27, 2016.

    DevOps is a cornerstone to concepts used to drive the implementation, with continuous integration and delivery as methods to deliver the actual solution. In a large enterprise, there are many front-end and back-end systems/processes that need to "talk". This presentation focuses on highlighting and breaking down the silos that exist in order to redirect energy and attention on (the more important) outcomes that are generated from lighter methods to delivery IT systems. This includes establishing similar light weight methods for all groups in the organization to publish updates and changes in the environment with, again, a focus on the values, practices, and outcomes.

    Jason Walker, the Lead DevOps Engineer at Target Corporation, will discuss many of the lessons learned and best practices during the adoption of DevOps at Target.

  • itSMF USA DevOps/Agile CoI - Introduction to DevOps Recorded: Oct 7 2015 50 mins
    Nathen Harvey
    "DevOps" is a term that has become mainstream enough to be hated, misunderstood, misused, and abused. But what is "DevOps"? And, more importantly, why should I care?

    DevOps isn't a tool or a product. It's an approach to operations. By uniting development and operations teams to automate and standardize processes for infrastructure deployment, you get faster innovation, accelerated time to market, improved deployment quality, better operational efficiency, and more time to focus on your core business goals.

    This presentation will explore the principles and forms of DevOps. I know DevOps when I see it and, soon, you will, too.

  • Higher Ed CoI - How to Build Respect for your Higher Ed ITSM Program Recorded: Sep 22 2015 50 mins
    Thom Salo, Executive Consultant, Delivery Manager, G2G3
    In Higher Education you have unique issues. Working to fulfill the needs of academics, researchers, students, support teams and other enterprise groups can leave you feeling pulled in multiple directions. Decision – making authority is not always clear. A process culture may be seen as too “corporate” for your culture.

    Join ITIL Expert, Thom Salo, to cover seven steps you can take to work to build respect and buy-in for your IT service management initiatives and super-charge your customers. We’ll cover:
    • How to align with various departmental needs/goals.
    • Answer the question, “Why do we care about an ITSM program?”
    • Managing program expectations.
    • Doing what we say we’ll do!
    • Feedback – how to get it and use it.
    • How to get past “creating” and get on with “adopting and embracing.”
    • The role tracking of metrics will play.
  • itSMF USA Problem Management CoI - Improving Problem Mgmt: A Real Life Strategy Recorded: Aug 19 2015 60 mins
    Joseph A Kuti, Senior ITSM Process Manager, Marriott International
    A successful process improvement strategy will first begin by leveraging the Continual Service Improvement (CSI) model:

    •What is the vision?
    •Where are we now?
    •Where do we want to be?
    •How do we get there?
    •Did we get there?
    •How do we keep the momentum going?

    This presentation will provide a real life example of how to apply the CSI model in order to define a problem management improvement strategy. Joseph will discuss his improvement strategy and his approach of implementing process improvements to improve the maturity of problem management process. The goal is to share with other practitioners in the problem community of interest:

    •Real life techniques
    •Lessons learned
    •Sample artifacts

  • Higher Ed CoI - The Knowledge-Centered Support (KCS) Difference, and Its Impact Recorded: Jul 21 2015 61 mins
    Host: Edward Gray - Speakers: Rae Ann Bruno, Stephenie Gloden, Steve McMillan
    Do any of these comments sound familiar?

    - “Only the new people find value in our knowledge base.”
    - “Once our teams learn how to resolve something, they don’t need to use the knowledge base.”
    - “It takes longer to find it in the knowledge base than it does to figure it out.”
    - “Our knowledge base is out dated and cumbersome to use.”
    - "I’ll ask (insert name here), he / she will know the answer.”
    If so, you may be stuck in the knowledge-engineering rut. The Knowledge-centered-support methodology is a proven best practice that overcomes these challenges. Attend this session to learn about the KCS methodology and how you can use it to:

    -reduce the time to resolution
    -standardize answers to your customers
    -lower support costs
    -increase customer satisfaction
    -increase employee job satisfaction

    KCS becomes the way you resolve incidents, answer questions, share your knowledge with peer staff, and in short get people back to work. Because it is part of the Incident process, it is always current and accurate and enables your teams to continually support an expanding breadth of services.

    Additionally, you will hear about the journey of the University of Phoenix, and parent company Apollo Education Group, in moving out of old-school knowledge engineering, “ivory tower” knowledge approaches, and into the realm of real-time knowledge management – using KCS to empower front-line staff content administration, and manage knowledge by positive peer-to-peer relationships. We will discuss the use of the Knowledge-Centered Support (KCS) methodology in a highly-regulated business environment, to capture, structure, and reuse knowledge as new incidents occur and the business environment changes. Our chat will discuss the methods utilized, uncover the “ditches” to avoid, and present the metrics used to measure and prove success.
