MCLEAN, Va., Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner of MetricNet, LLC, was chosen to facilitate Succeeding with Metrics, a new interactive, consultative HDI Training Workshop. Mr. Rumburg will share his knowledge and expertise in metrics for IT service and support at various locations across the United States this year. The goal of the new workshop is to empower service and support professionals to leverage metrics in their pursuit of continuous service improvement.
"The HDI Metrics Workshop fills an obvious void in the marketplace. Too often, metrics are used for reporting purposes only. But this observational approach to metrics greatly limits their value," said Jeff Rumburg. "The true potential of service and support KPIs can only be realized when they are used diagnostically and prescriptively. By interpreting the KPIs of service and support, and then acting to mitigate or eliminate negative performance gaps, progressive support organizations can realize the promise of continuous service improvement."
Succeeding with Metrics will include classroom instruction, group activities, exercises, downloadable tools, and take-aways that can be implemented immediately. Support professionals that attend this first-of-its-kind workshop will learn how to use metrics holistically to achieve sustainable performance improvements in IT support.
For those interested in attending Succeeding with Metrics, there are four options, including:
- HDI Annual Conference in Las Vegas, NV: April 9-10
- HDI Training Experience in Philadelphia, PA: July 23-24
- HDI Training Experience in Kansas City, MO: September 17-18
- Service Management World in Orlando, FL: October 15-17
Mr. Rumburg is the winner of the Ron Muns Lifetime Achievement Award, was named to HDI's Top 25 Thought Leaders list for 2016 and 2017, and has served on HDI's Strategic Advisory Board. He is co-founder and managing partner of MetricNet, LLC, where he is responsible for global strategy, product development and client engagement delivery. As a leading expert in benchmarking and re-engineering, Mr. Rumburg authored a best-selling book on benchmarking and has been retained as a benchmarking expert by such well-known companies as American Express, Hewlett-Packard, General Motors and IBM.
