PRE-8: Succeeding With Metrics! Leveraging KPIs For Continuous Service Improvement

This interactive, consultative workshop - facilitated by industry expert Jeff Rumburg - will provide a comprehensive overview of best practices in performance measurement and management for IT Service and Support.

Many of us have heard the sage advice “You can’t manage what you don’t measure.” This is particularly true in IT service and support, where effective performance measurement is not just a necessity, but a prerequisite for a successful center. This workshop addresses this shortcoming, and will provide a comprehensive overview of best practices in IT Service and Support Performance Measurement

In this workshop, MetricNet’s research, gathered from literally thousands of IT Service and Support benchmarks, will illustrate that the vast majority of IT service and support organizations use metrics to track and trend their performance – but nothing more! Unfortunately, in this mode, an IT service and support organization misses the real value of performance measurement by failing to exploit the diagnostic capabilities of KPIs, and the call-to-action potential of KPIs. 

Jeff brings more than twenty-five years of benchmarking and consulting experience in IT Service and Support to the classroom. The goal of the workshop is to share his knowledge and expertise to help students leverage and optimize KPIs to achieve continuous service improvement in their support organizations.

What You Will Learn

  • Track and trend performance over time
  • Benchmark performance vs. industry peers
  • Identify strengths and weaknesses in IT support
  • Diagnose and understand the underlying drivers of performance gaps

Who Should Attend

  • Any service and support professional who wants to harness and leverage the true potential of metrics for individual, team, and organizational performance.
