#TFT12 Presentation: Standard+Case.

Standard+Case is about applying a body of knowledge called Adaptive Case Management to ITSM, synthesising it with our existing ITIL process approach. This is an exciting new concept from the IT Skeptic that will radically improve the way we handle responses to any sort of "tickets". Standard+Case is applicable to Problem Management and Change Management (and Event Management...) as well as Service Desk activities. S+C applies to anything that requires a human response: there's either a standard response or there isn't. The S+C approach addresses criticisms of other Service Management approaches like ITIL for being too process-centric and not allowing knowledge workers to be empowered. S+C also provides a good skills path for service desk analysts that fits well with gamification. If you only look at one new idea this year, look at this one. It is an ITSM game-changer.

  • 8. • a series of execution states Case • states are determined dynamicallyManagement • external events can change the state. • options for action at each state • actions are chosen dynamically • Inputs and outputs decided dynamically • resources chosen dynamically o templates, checklists, content, policy, procedures, tools, people... • states and actions are unpredictable • goals will change as the case develops • planning is part of execution

  • 18. Gamification• Rank the Standard models by difficulty/risk• Give SD analysts training in each model• Give staff a badge for being certified• Some models we prefer they be executed by a certified staff member, some models the staff member must be certified• Only Case-certified staff members ("leveled up") deal with non-standard tickets -> empowered knowledge workers
