itSMF USA Arizona IG: IT Service Management and Governance

Mart Rovers (President InterProm USA) with Moderator Mark Trubl (Manager, Service Support at US Foods)
Successful IT Service Management adoptions benefit from good dose of IT Governance. Both ITIL and COBIT are well-known for their best practices regarding these respective topics. However, where does one find the information to benefit from both worlds of best practices? This presentation will discuss how IT Governance best practices compliment and boost the adoption of IT Service Management best practices.

  • Enterprises are realizing that the opportunity of data analytics is maximum when the data is fresh and represents the "current reality" of operations or customer experience. The business value of data dramatically falls with its age.

    As IT and line-of-business executives begin to operationalize Hadoop and MPP based batch Big Data analytics, it's time to prepare for the next wave of innovation in data processing.

    Join this webinar on analytics over real-time streaming data.

  • Problem Management is a game changer. It is critical in developing real quality in service delivery. However, very few organisations actually get this aspect of ITSM working well.

    This fourth session in the ITSM Goodness series will look at how we spend too much time focussing on efficient ‘fire-fighting’ (Incident Management), rather than looking at avoiding recurrence or eradicating faults altogether - ultimately a better solution for customer and provider alike. Often there are some simple misunderstandings around what Problem Management is or what is required to make it work. Also it can be difficult to find the right people to make Problem Management happen, particularly as it is not a simple linear process that can be ‘industrialised’ like Incident Management. This session provides simple clear guidelines on what is needed and how to make Problem Management work well for your organisation.

    This 8-part monthly series is designed to provide real-time value to newcomers and take to the next level those already familiar with the approach.

    ITSM Goodness is an approach created by Barclay Rae to deliver practical, proven, successful and accessible advice and guidance for ITSM and IT professionals. The focus is clear and simple – on achieving the right business outcomes from IT, and how this is delivered, via the Customer Experience.
  • The foundation of success for any company is an outstanding customer experience, but we all know the journey toward creating an amazing service culture is a challenging one. While a great culture doesn’t happen overnight, it IS attainable (really!) with the right approach. Join Joel Daly, HOSTING’s COO, as he discusses HOSTING’s journey: the obstacles, the companies we admire, and the process we undertook to reach excellent service.
  • For many IT Service Organisations the selection of their ITSM toolset is one of the most important, and expensive, decisions they can make. Causing huge disruption and extra work as staff are moved from one system to another. The ITSM toolset is like the engine that drives an IT department and its ability to ensure work is prioritised, integrated and moved between support teams. It is utterly critical to the running of an IT department, but if its so important why do so many IT departments only keep a toolset for 3-5 years before moving to another one and starting the process again?

    Join Peter Hubbard, Principal ITSM Consultant at Pink Elephant, as he shares his experiences on what happens during an ‘out of the box’ toolset implementation program, along with his advice and guidance on avoiding typical pitfalls that many implementations could easily avoid.

    Learn about the critical importance of People, Process and Product working in harmony to make sure that your toolset selection and implementation program delivers real business value quickly.

    Learn why ‘Out of the box’ is a dangerous phrase, and there is no such thing in the real world. Peter will be join by Michael Jenkins, a veteran toolset implementer with over 20 such projects behind him as they discuss what happens in an ‘out of the box’ implementation.

    They will discuss how to pick a toolset, the value of use cases, what happens on the vendor ‘demo day’ and what sort of actions you can be undertaking prior to the chosen vendor starting their implementation in order to speed up the process and make sure that your most expensive ITSM decision returns real value.
  • There’s a sea change taking place in service and how consumer ‘journeys’ are taking place. Howard Kendall, founder of the SDI, has spent much time keeping track of what is really going on, how customer expectations are changing, and how we can use leverage this in the service desk industry.

    Join Howard for an informative discussion on how service desk can successfully rise to the challenge of delivering excellent customer service, meeting, and possibly surpassing, the expectations of the customers they support. Howard will provide some top tips that will help to win the hearts and minds of service desk customers and build stronger relationships with end-user constituents, elevating the position of the service desk within the IT organisation.
  • Join us for a 30-minute live session every Friday, where we’ll tour the RingCentral interface, discuss the latest innovations and features available on the RingCentral platform, and share best practices on leveraging cloud communications for your business. This session features a live demo of RingCentral Office and an open Q&A session led by a Sales Engineer. This week tune in and learn how your employees can hold multi-point HD video meetings around the world, anytime and anywhere with RingCentral Meetings.
  • When some organizations talk about “service catalogs,” what some of them really mean is “service request catalog” or even “employee self-help.” The service catalog and the service request catalog are typically critical components of an IT Portal that facilitates a wide array of interactions at all levels between the business and their IT service provider.

    This session will discuss the relationship between these catalogs as well as other artifacts and managing the interfaces with the business at the operational, tactical and strategic levels via an IT Portal on the intranet. How can we more effectively serve our users and customers by managing such a portal and leveraging well-constructed catalogs? Imagine the possibilities.
  • In this session, long time industry experts Torrey Jones will discuss and demonstrate a Best Practices approach to Service Catalog utilizing HP’s newest SaaS Offering, Service Anywhere. As part of this discussion and demonstration, Torrey will cover how automation can help drive user satisfaction, and positively impact users adoption of a Service Catalog.

  • BRM - True Romance or Unrequited Love? Apr 21 2014 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    This webinar will provide you with two complementary perspectives on Business Relationship Management that will help you achieve true romance rather than ending up in unrequited love!
    Based on recent and ongoing interest in Business Relationship Management, there can be no doubt that BRM is a hot topic. Organizations realize that a better relationship between business and IT will result in more business value from the IT provider’s products and services.
    But how do you achieve this from a provider’s perspective? What kind of knowledge, skills, behaviors and processes do you need? And because the relationship is by definition with the business, what do you expect from your partners on ‘the other side of the fence’? How can you help them to fulfil their side of the bargain?
    After listening to Aleksandr and Mark share their two perspectives, there’ll be ample opportunity for you to join in and contribute to the dialogue - you are most welcome!

However, there is a lot to be learned from others. This presentation shares many of Doug's "lessons learned" that can be applied to any ITSM implementation.

  • The Service Desk, A Strategic Asset for the Business Recorded: Mar 10 2014 58 mins
    There are many organizations who consider the service desk as a fully operational area which adds no value as such, in fact, they think that the service Desk is there to “repair” or “fix” things and that’s it. For the past six years Mauricio Corona has been conducting a scientific research within Service Desks and other departments in order to answer a detailed question. Does the service desk can provide value to the business? To answer this question, the ITIL process Incident management and the function Service Desk were translated into variables and, at the same time, were measured against business alignment dimensions.The findings were surprising, the Incident and Service Desk variables not only showed that there is a positive correlation with business alignment dimensions, they showed too that they can improve the business operations and value generation when the Service Desk is mature

  • The Business Manager’s Guide to IT Symptomology Recorded: Feb 10 2014 64 mins
    When you buy something you expect a good value in exchange for the money paid - after all it is your hard earned money! Business managers are no different – they expect IT to provide value for the money that is invested in IT services and products.
    Business managers can become displeased when comparing the money spent on IT services to the benefits they get from those services. They voice that displeasure by asking for more from the existing services at the current service costs, or for a decrease in costs for the services currently delivered. To an business manager, everything is in the language of business performance and financial impact.
    There are symptoms business managers should be aware of that indicate where improvements can be made within the business and IT relationship that will result in improved IT service quality and performance. The challenge to making these improvements is recognizing their symptoms.
    This session will describe the symptoms that business managers should be aware of in order to understand the performance of their IT organizations and lead to improvements within the business and IT relationship. Attendees will learn:
    •Typical IT Symptoms that indicate a problem with value
    •How to address problematic IT symptoms
    •IT talking points to use with business executive management to establish IT and business improvements

  • itSMF USA Higher Education SIG | How to Ride the Maturity Model Wave Recorded: Mar 21 2013 56 mins
    How do you cope, and excel, when you know how your IT department needs to evolve but no one else seems to understand? The process of introducing an organization to a new way of doing things can be very frustrating and uncomfortable.

    This presentation is a pragmatic complement to improvement frameworks such as the ITIL CSI model and John Kotter’s 8-step change model. This webinar focuses on what it’s like to be the person pushing for change, and how to build short-term wins, “anticipated pains,” and feedback loops to successfully “ride the maturity model wave” from one level to the next.

  • itSMF CobIT SIG | Frameworks, Standards & Models: What's Out There and ... Recorded: Jan 10 2013 58 mins
    Frameworks, Standards and Models - What's Out There and Which Should I Use?

    In the IT Governance environment there are multiple frameworks, models and standards to choose from. A challenge for most organizations is simply understanding what all of these are, and which ones are applicable or appropriate for them. Some common questions include: If we’re using ITIL, should we consider COBIT? How does Kepner Trego fit with ITIL? Will using Six Sigma compete with ITIL’s CSI? How does ISO 20000 leverage ITIL? In this insightful presentation on Frameworks, Standards, and Certifications explore the many models that are available today: what they are, how they fit, and why choose them. We’ll look at the essential information as well as the applicability of the following: ITIL, COBIT, SIX SIGMA, ISO20000, KEPNER TREGO, PRINCE2, AGILE, and TIPA to name a few.
