  • Next Generation IT Support Model:As devices (BYOD), applications (BYOA) and work contexts proliferate e.g. Activity Based Working, the volume and complexity of support requirements continues to rise. Current models are straining at the seams and there is little appetite for increasing the size of the team.Clearly the IT Support model needs to evolve. While the some back end processes may serve us well, we need to change the way we engage end-users, ensuring that we provide a service that delivers a great experience and makes them as productive as possible.New support channels such as Self Service, Social and even physical “walk up” desks can be used in an integrated model to create a support function that provides a well designed user experience while keeping costs under control. Our insights on social technologies, and deep experience with the Service Desk function and IT processes makes us a great partner to work with in this evolution. We work with with you to design the optimal support model to meet the service experience you want to deliver at the price point the business can sustain.We can measure your current Support performance, survey the business as to their perceptions of value and service experience and create a design for your Next Generation support model. Of course we’re keen to help you implement that as well!
  • Bruce Lee was a philosopher. He majored in philosophy at the University of Washington, Seattle. His own personal philosophy was heavily influenced by Taoism and Buddhism. He brought this philosophy to his interpretation of Kung Fu and the heart of JeetKune Do.One of his key teachings was "to be like water". Water flows around the rock. The rock represents resistance - in fighting, the resistance is from the opponent.

We believe our clients’ success will be realised through: • The interaction between IT and business across the lifecycle needs to consist of deliberately designed experiences such that IT is really easy to work with and business colleagues get what they need.

  • First things first: Let’s start with Why 7 What Every Organisation on the planet knows what they do. These are the products they sell and the services they offer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4ZoJKF_VuA (first 5 minutes) In IT Terms? What We deliver IT Services How Using IT people and tools following best practices Why ? How Some organisations know HOW they do it. These are the things that make them special or set them apart from their competition Why Very few organisations know WHY they do what they do. WHY is not about making money. It’s about purpose, cause or belief. It’s the reason your organisation exists beyond any financial targets
  • Is the Service Desk broken? Discussion Questions: 1. What do our customers think of the experience? • Discuss from their perspective 2. What quality of service do we think we are delivering? • Do we really know? 3. What are the barriers to doing better? • It’s not just about resourcing… 4. What do we need to do to support our business WHY? • Let’s explore this more later on 8 http://vimeo.com/4246943

  • Social IT & 6 Significant attributes WikiPedia: “Social IT involves the use of collaboration-based tools and solutions that transform the way IT professionals and related business line leaders enhance communication, productivity, knowledge-sharing, collaboration and decision-making” 1. Asynchronous conversations • Searchable, threaded dialogue 2. Parallel processing • How many chat windows can you juggle? 3. Self regulating Knowledge Management • Peer to peer, Interest Groups, Internal and External KBs 4. Near Real-Time • Expectations of immediate response – it’s called Chat for a reason… 5.

  • The Case for an Integrated Approach to Support 26 Islay Hi David How can I help you today David Hi Islay I have a Tech booked to come to my home tomorrow. I've figured out that he needs to bring a new router but don't have a way of contacting him. Case number is 145 667 301 Islay How was the case lodged David Via the 13xxxxx number weeks back and again earlier via mobile today. My home phone is no longer working and mobile coverage in the house is poor. Therefore I need someone to get in touch with the tech. Islay OK We do not have access to the cases lodged by phone David And?....... (long pause) David Are you telling me you don't have a phone? Islay We do not have authority to contact in relation to existing cases David Are you not able to call someone within <telco> to pass them a message from me? Islay I don’t have authority to discuss an existing case Islay It would have certain people listed as authorized to discuss the case David The number is 13xxxxx and the case number is 145 667 301. I could call them myself but my phone doesn't work ;-] Islay I understand that I am no authorized to call through on your behalf though The faults team do not have a live chat area David Well Islay I have to say that the chat service is not very helpful. David Enjoy the rest of your evening. Islay Its due to the intricate nature of the faults team as to why they don’t have a live chat team Sorry for any inconvenience David Yes I agree that they are very intricate. So is dealing with <telco>. David I understand that it's not your fault. You didn't design the service model. David Bye for now
  • Support Model Channel Options 27 Channel Strengths Phone Required for complex, real time situations Often the only channel available when there are network outages (including home ADSL) Social Gives a great user experience if the CSR has access to knowledgebase and/or is expert in the services being supported Allows multiple concurrent sessions leading to CSR efficiency Chat rooms can be used for engaging users in multiple locations to discuss incidents and requests Physical Great for physical device, SOE or software installation issues Helpful for training some users – but an expensive training option Self help Internal: A familiar experience, leverages knowledgebase, can be measured External: Great for device specific issues and known errors in software, handy in BYOD but must be constrained due to risks to give users access to fix own issues Peer & crowd Fast response and re-use of effort from outside the organization Works well for typical Device & OS issues Discussion Questions: 1. Use cases for social: • For users • For Groups • Across the lifecycle 2. Where does phone still show it’s strengths 3. Why would we consider a Physical walk up desk 4. How might the “crowd” help?
  • 6 Inputs for Designing Your Multi-Channel Support Model 28 ServiceDesk Physical Desk SelfService Portal EndUsers Incidents Standard Requests Non Standard Requests “How to” enquiries Service enquiries Device incidents New machine pickup Incidents Standard Requests Non Standard Requests “How to” enquiries Service enquiries/FAQs UsersGroups Enhancements Ideas/Innovations Non-standard Requests Peer Support Problems 2ndLevel 3rdLevel We need to design a user experience to match: 1. Users work context, channel preferences and skill levels 2. Business model & operational attributes 3. Service Vs cost tensions 4. Service Portfolio attributes 5. Sourcing Model 6. Device profiles

  • Our traditional Costing models still work… 33
  • 8 Step Roadmap to Social & Multi-Channel 1. Go Social in IT first • Engage the team in the incident lifecycle, get used to the cadence 2. Go hard on KCS and move as much Incident traffic to the portal as you can 3. Standardise your requests and get them on the portal 4. Consider whether the “walk-up” physical desk will work for you 5. Introduce Social “triage” concept as a pilot with limited users • Measure performance across the channels and tune workloads for optimum user experience 6. Do Social, Phone and Email from 1 team and balance the user experience, but • Try not to be on Social and phone at the same time 7. Actively manage email down as far as possible 8. Measure, analyse, improve 34
  • Some implications • Complexities of calls may go up • Staff profile needs to change … • Who should you have on phone? • Who should be on chat? • KPIs need to change: • Support left-shifting • Experience per channel (channel bounces…) • Costs per channel • Tweak of the processes: • Triage • Incident & Request workflows • Are your tools up for it? • Social Integration • Process workflows • Reporting 35

These are the things that make them special or set them apart from their competition Why Very few organisations know WHY they do what they do. WHY is not about making money.
