Metrics – every framework has them. But which ones matter? After 30 years in technology for organisations of all sizes I think I have created a way to at least let me know Good.

Join me as we discuss metrics that matter for your staff, stakeholders, suppliers and customers. Let’s see if we can work together to always be Good.

A light introduction to the methodology that puts knowledge at center stage as the core asset of the organization – Knowledge-Centered Service (KCS). Organizations struggle with the delivery of consistent knowledge at the right time, across all channels. What’s needed is a knowledge sharing culture and shifting from technology focus to customer experience focus…and as service in the cloud becomes more complex, the flow of knowledge becomes the key to customer success.
Join Rick Joslin as he explores a knowledge-centric service management strategy that goes beyond the integration of ITIL and KCS.
