Proactive Problem Management - Virtual

29 November 2021

Learn how to improve the services you deliver, increase customer satisfaction and work proactively to understand the problems your customers and team face before they happen…

Proactive problem management identifies, resolves, and prevents problems before they cause service impacting incidents. This approach differs from reactive problem management by recognising patterns of events that suggest an underlying problem, identifying opportunities to prevent future problems and identifying the root cause of a problem upon its first occurrence.

Why do I need proactive problem management?

Proactive problem management is important as it enables organisations to:

• Avoid incidents from occurring in the first place
• Reduce IT support workload caused by repeated low priority incidents
• Stop wasting money on, and causing business issues through, repeat incidents
• Incident management alone is not enough; problem management helps your customers and the service desk as well as your organisation’s CSI activities.

Who should attend?

ITSM professionals looking to get started with problem management or those looking to improve their existing PM efforts should attend this course. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own real-world scenarios for discussion if they are comfortable with sharing them.
