    Ask the Expert : Breaking through the traditional ITSM ‘glass ceiling’


      Post your questions below. 


      Despite the sound guidance ITIL provides some fundamental flaws remain in how it shapes traditional IT Service Management (ITSM) initiatives.   Industry analysts warn the traditional approach to ITSM does not work for a contemporary enterprise.  As many as 75% of ITSM projects will either be scaled back, or abandoned within their first six months.  A higher percentage will fail to start.  Scary statistics for service management professionals.


      Few IT groups manage to get beyond the basic processes of Incident, Change, Configuration Management and the Service Catalog.  Even then practitioners face challenges breaking through the traditional ITSM ‘glass ceiling’.  We are urged to think, plan and approach service management from the “outside-in”, but what does this mean?    In this presentation Ian will explore:

      • The characteristics of the ITSM glass ceiling and common indicators of you are on the path to failure
      • The four key questions you must answer an outside-in approach addresses
      • Three simple steps you can take now to adjust a planned or existing approach and avoid becoming one of the wrong statistics.
