You have software that follows guidance on good management practices? - we will all be redundant!

Are you applying for a job in your own organization that you do not know how to do?

hi yes i am applying in my own organization the reason why i am asking this is because now it is not centralize, it is a service desk that is spread within the state/province.. but now it will be centralize in one location for all the facilities that we have. Here's the actaul scenario..
Recent
1. 7 Different location working different ways but with the same ITIL Application for the service desk.
2. Staff within all these location to respond the call receive within the service desk..
3. Each location works on their own and support their own users....

New
1. Centralize in 1 location(will support all user for all 7 different location)
2. Staff will be all at 1 location
3. Shift 24/7


Now i have an idea of what needs to be done, but i wanted to check out in forum for expertise and manager that had experience to guide me or give me point so i could be prepare since i know there will be question like this at the interview...Espacially for example what will you do and how or what are the step that you will take to start implementing the service desk..
For example..

1. Location
2. Amount of desk or cubicule needed for the staff
3. Space needed
4. Type of communication( phone line) that will be use
5. Shift( How many shift per day will be implemented)
6. How many staff per shift
7. etc...

THose are some idea that i know has to be done but i would like to know what other important steps just to make sure that i dont forget something really important...

I hope that this is more clear...

thanks for your reply, well that's why i am trying to get the info, if i am not qualified, what would i need to get qualified... i just started the ITIL Foundation online certification, i understand that with a certification like that if i am not mistaken, that it will provide me details on how to implement the service desk, but i taught that coming here i would be able to find guidelines to help me get prepared...

It's the first time i post on forum like this, the only reason why i did this is to find information since i have taught that i would find it here..


If this is not the right place, i would appreciate if someone can guide me to a different area or site..


Sincerely

It may be that the principle thing you lack is appropriate experience in IT service management. Book knowledge can do little to help there.

On the other hand, one hears all the time of people being given jobs they lack the experience for and then being expected to learn on the job. You may well succeed that way. For your interview, you will do better by having tried to work out all the answers for yourself, than to cite some bullet points, that lack context for you provided by people, who may or may not know what they are talking about (you have no way of knowing whether I, for example, know anything about this subject whatever answers I give you).

Not Qualified.....as if he created ITIL...

i guess you should go with the certification first and make sure you understand the concepts and read as many as case studies.
No one learns without working on it...so doesn't matter what people think of you...Attitute and determination is the key.

Stick to your organizational objectives and try and relate the guidelines from the ITIL....you should be able to doa fair justice to your role.
Always seek guidance from your seniors.....

taking that single step is important than assuming that i cannot do anything...

svs79,

ITIL was not the issue in this question.
