As the world evolves and digital transformation takes over, IT organizations need to adapt to changing business environments. The way organizations do business is changing, and so are the ways of working. Remote collaboration across distributed environments is not rare anymore, and everyday more organizations discover the benefits of having their staff working from home, either for convenience or due to contingencies like the one introduced by the COVID-19.

In such cases, productivity takes a different meaning to IT managers, but value delivery requirements remain, and even increase as more business services become digital. Traditional IT Service Management is slowly fading away, as the digital era opens way to new challenges, from complex distributed architectures to distant teamwork and staff management.

  • Learn how IT Service Management enables businesses and the practices that are critical for value creation.
  • Obtain a high-level understanding of IT Governance, its components and its importance to align the operational goals of IT with strategic business goals.
  • Develop a leadership mindset that helps creating the right culture, enabling the required capabilities and defining appropriate metrics for measuring relevant goals.
  • Get a comprehensive and clear view of Lean IT practices and how these can be used to enable a continual improvement approach and achieving higher IT maturity levels.
  • Walk out with an action plan that helps your IT organization taking the right next steps towards improving organizational and operational performance in a distributed and remote environment.
