Re: The shocking truth about continual service improvement

MylesS

This makes sense to me. Dan Ariely, who has written some great books and is a behaviorial economist at Duke, has written a HBR column entitled " You Are What You Measure". I contend that for all the service management leaders listening that if you do not actively measure against improvement goals than your IT organization is like a sail boat that is three sheets to the wind!

Myles,

 

I am catching up on a few HP ITSM blog posts. I just read Mary Rasmussen's on KPIs and made a comment asking about the relationship to CSI. And you have addressed by comment/question in the next post I came across. Serendipity!

 

Reflecting my comment in Mary's blog, I submit that the cost pressures of the economic turmoil of 2008 and beyond put many IT and service desk organizations into survival mode. Gartner wrote a lot on service desk maturity in 2012 and I think that you can make a reasonable arguement that a lot of organizations actually went backwards over the past 5 years. I further submit that there is a bit of an epiphany going on related to the benefits of pragmatic maturity improvements.

 

Your most seems perfectly aligned.
