Effectively Measuring & Reporting Services   NEW

Measuring the intangible to ensure tangible delivery

Customers are focused on the outcome of the services they use. They usually do not look into how the service is built and operated. A service provider organization must on the other hand make everything possible to ensure that the service is delivered as expected by the customer. Building indicators, metrics, thresholds and other reporting tools on the services is quite a challenge because a service is something intangible by nature! Which tool should therefore be used to verify that what is expected has been (or is going to be) correctly delivered?
The training Effectively Measuring and Reporting Services helps service provider organizations to select, implement and use key value indicators of a service like its performance, quality, cost, availability etc.
