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.

In 2016, Southwest Airlines’ service desk faced a number of serious challenges. Costs were above average, service levels were poor, the adoption rate of chat was near zero, and agents had no career path. A benchmark revealed that their metrics discipline was at the root of many of these challenges. Fast forward a year and you’ll find that Southwest now has one of the best performing service desks in the industry. By maturing their metrics, they’ve reduced costs while improving customer satisfaction, first contact resolution rate, service levels, and agent job satisfaction. Moreover, chat now represents more than 30% of their ticket volume, and agents have a well-defined career path! This case study session illustrates how Southwest leveraged metrics to close performance gaps and achieve world-class performance in less than 12 months.

ITSM is now a decades-old discipline. So why, then, do most company services— including human resources and facilities management—still operate with ad hoc processes and little understanding of key success factors? There’s an enormous opportunity for IT support professionals to provide leadership and enhance their careers by imparting the lessons of service management to non-IT enterprise services. This session will show you how! You’ll learn how IT can lead the way in enterprise services, identify success factors for the emerging enterprise service desk, and explore case studies in successful enterprise service management. The enterprise service desk is a once-in-a-generation career opportunity that’s not to be missed!

Optimizing headcount is a common challenge in most support groups. In fact, MetricNet has found that the vast majority of service and support organizations are either under-staffed or over-staffed, and each comes with its own set of problems.
