Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner of MetricNet, LLC, was chosen to facilitate Succeeding with Metrics, an interactive, consultative ICMI Training Workshop. Mr. Rumburg will share his knowledge and expertise in Contact Center metrics at various locations across the United States this year. The goal of the new workshop is to empower contact center professionals to leverage metrics in their pursuit of continuous service improvement. “The ICMI Metrics Workshop fills an obvious void in the marketplace. Too often, metrics are used for reporting purposes only. But this observational approach to metrics greatly limits their value.” said Jeff Rumburg. “The true potential of contact center KPIs can only be realized when they are used diagnostically and prescriptively. By interpreting the contact center KPIs, and then acting to mitigate or eliminate negative performance gaps, progressive contact centers can realize the promise of continuous service improvement.” ICMI’s Succeeding with Metrics workshop will include classroom instruction, group activities, exercises, downloadable tools, and take-aways that can be implemented immediately. Contact Center professionals that attend this cutting-edge training opportunity will learn how to use metrics holistically to achieve sustainable performance improvements in the Contact Center. The inaugural workshop took place June 26-27, 2019 in Alexandria, VA. For those interested in attending a future workshop, there are several options, including: ICMI Symposium in San Diego, CA: November 20-21, 2019 Client Site Training: Contact ICMI to bring this course to your facility All those involved in the delivery and support of contact center services, and the fundamental concepts behind contact center management, are encouraged to attend.
