MCLEAN, Va., October 17, 2018 (Newswire.com) – Jeff Rumburg, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of MetricNet, presented Session 305, ‘Building a Center of Excellence: The Emory Healthcare Success Journey!,’ at the Inaugural Service Management World Conference in Orlando, Florida. In this session, Mr. Rumburg presented a compelling case study that illustrated how Emory Healthcare broke the cycle of reactivity, matured its metrics and ITIL processes, and transformed its IT support organization into a Center of Excellence. “Today, Emory Healthcare has one of the top-performing support organizations in the healthcare industry. However, in 2016, Emory Healthcare’s support organization faced a host of serious challenges,” said Jeff Rumburg. “The company was growing rapidly through acquisition; the support organization was fragmented, scattered across multiple departments; metrics were immature, ITIL processes nonexistent, and there was little accountability in the organization.” Those interested in this presentation can find a copy of the slide deck on MetricNet’s website. Mr. Rumburg also presented a 2-day pre-conference workshop, ‘Succeeding With Metrics! Leveraging KPIs For Continuous Service Improvement,’ on Oct. 14-15, 2018. Mr. Rumburg is the winner of the Ron Muns Lifetime Achievement Award and was named one of the Top 25 Thought Leaders in Technical Support and Service Management for 2016 and 2017.
