    ITSM Monopoly – The Game of Tool Selection

    The approach of many organisations when selecting an IT service management solution is like a game of Monopoly. They start at GO with little or no preparation and are then faced with a plethora of available tools to choose from, just like the mass of properties on the Monopoly board. They have no idea how to play the game. Selecting an ITSM tool should not be a roll of the dice. This presentation aims to equip the audience with the steps needed to ensure that the right tool for the right price, that meets the needs of the business is selected.

    Balanced Diversity – Which Practices for Which Change?

    At TFT12, I spoke about how successfully embedding change into organisational culture is one of the biggest challenges we face whether the change be in organisational structure, processes, people, geography, technology and so on. It proposed the adoption of a new and innovative framework, which provides a portfolio approach to embedding change. The framework provides a balanced approach using a wide range of practices. It is the adoption of a diverse set of practices within a balanced portfolio – (A Balanced Diversity) – that is required to achieve sufficient penetration and traction that will ensure successful organisational change. You can read the white paper here.

    At TFT13, I will take it a stage further and place the framework into a context of an organisational change methodology to ensure that the right practices for the change in hand are selected. No change is the same and therefore the practices employed to enable a successful outcome will be different for each change. This presentation will reveal the knowledge that must be gathered and the questions that must be answered to ensure the right practices are chosen and how that can be accomplished.
