INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., April 12, 2019 (Newswire.com) – Jeff Rumburg, co-founder and managing partner of MetricNet, participated in Session 501, “Metrics Magic: Ask the Experts,” at the Annual HDI Conference in Orlando, Florida. This marks the 27th consecutive year Mr. Rumburg has been selected as a speaker for the Annual HDI Conference & Expo. Rae Ann Bruno, John Custy and Jeff Rumburg answered questions from attendees, focusing on a range of concepts, such as the linkage between metrics and business outcomes, metrics and continuous improvement, the cause-and-effect relationship of KPIs, metrics and accountability, and metrics as a diagnostic tool for continuous improvement. “Despite all the data that IT service managers have at their fingertips, most cannot answer a very basic question: How is my support organization performing?” said Rumburg. “Perhaps worse, many IT managers are unaware of the critical role – beyond mere measurement – that Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) can and should play in service and support. This includes the ability to track and trend performance, identify, diagnose and correct performance problems, establish performance goals and demonstrate the ROI of support.” Those interested in this presentation can find a copy of the slide deck on MetricNet’s website. Mr. Rumburg also presented Session 205, “Radical Success: Managing Service and Support as a Business,” on Wednesday, April 10, 2019. Additionally, he facilitated “Succeeding with Metrics,” a new interactive, consultative HDI Training Workshop on Monday, April 8, 2019, and Tuesday, April 9, 2019.
