Thanks for joining this forum.
As for uptight. No. What we the heavy posters in the forum are IT Professional using / advocating / etc about ITIL, Best practice and such like
What irritates me and i think it goes for all is when people post things asking for a solution when 1) there is no 'official solution' and 2) they have failed to engage brain and think
The forum gets posts like
what is ITIL
Is this tool ITIL certified
I want my web site ITIL compliant
Can I do ... in Incident mgmt
what font should i use in Problem mgmt (exaggeration yes)
Can you provide me with everything you know about ITIL so i dont have to learn any thing and have to use my mind (more exaggeration)
Can you post the contents of V3 for me (not exaggeration)
Can you tell me where i can find cheats to pass the itil exams
I am doing the self study course.. can you help me answer ....
where can I get training in lower upper outoftown ?
what web site should I go to register for a itil course
I search the web and can not find training course in my area
and so on
I (We) get tired of moronic questions by people who are too lazy to do something, learn something or try to get IP (intellectual property) for free rather than paying for it.
Do what all the other forums do: get a FAQ together, sticky it, refer to it when you see a "moronic" question. Much like ITIL organizations are supposed to put together a knowledge base so that people can benefit from other people's experiences.
So you can take your comment about us being uptight and shove it in the deleted bin.
I don't know how many forums you are a frequent user of, but your reaction was, in comparison to those I read and at least IMHO, uptight and way too harsh on the OP. I mean, come on, re-read your post:
"We did. You just did not accept it."
"The forum and its posters are not here to act as an replacement for engaging your brain"
"After all, you can light the fire for a man and keep him warm for 1 cold night or you can make him the Wicker Man and he will be warm for ever"
Were you having a bad day? There's not a single piece of useful advice in there
Now as to the KPIs he wants. We have done what our purpose is .. try to give him enough information to find the information himself so that he can learn
I beg to differ. There was little useful practical information in your answer. OP did mention that he was ready to provide any more information in case someone asked.
Everything in ITIL is subjective - The company u work at, the culture of the company, the country, the industry, the tools you use and the staff you have to fill the company and the it department.
What does have to do with KPIs? Why not trust OP and tell him: "Well, in my Great Company, here's what we do and here's why".
So if you really want, us uptight people will merely post
for all answers
No comment on this one.
Going to the bar for a corona
I hope it was good so that you can come back in better spirits.
OK, so we do sometimes get a bit frustrated at people asking very basic questions - if someone said " I was thinking good KPI's would be xxx, any comments or suggested improvements?", that would be different. Anyone sitting even a Foundation exam will have covered what the generic goal and objectives of a Service Desk are, a quick look at ITIL books (yes, ITIL is based on publications, you get to know what is says by reading it , rather than saying "tell me" If you had the books before - did you ever open them?).
I thought Diarmid's answer was spot on in advising how to approach devising relevant KPI's for your own organisation's Service Desk, whereas Vinnie2K was a lot less helpful, giving very generic advice that would fit any KPI for anything. But that is just my opinion! _________________ Liz Gallacher,
