Problem Management – Interactive Exploration of Common Challenges and Critical Success Factors
As IT service providers we strive for efficiency, effectiveness and quality while at the same time maintaining or reducing operational costs. Problem Management is an activity with the potential to facilitate all of these objectives, but it can be one of the most difficult to sell, formalize and mature.
During this highly interactive session, we will explore some of the common pitfalls and critical success factors for overcoming these hurdles and achieving the benefits of Problem Management. Be prepared to share, interact and learn with your peers. You will leave this session with an understanding of what it takes to move beyond some of the common barriers to success.
