Do any of you have targets/goals for how quickly you'd like to have a Problem resolved? I get that SLAs are highly discouraged in PM (since it can have a negative impact on the quality of the investigation/fix), so I'm just wondering if any of you use some sort of a Target to help guide teams through the PM process (i.e. 30 days for one priority, 90 days for another, etc.). I'm concerned that if there's no target whatsoever, Problems will just sit in a backlog and teams will continue to focus on Incidents since there's a measurable SLA for that. I understand that some Problems could take days, months, or years to get resolved...and in some cases, some may never be resolved. The purpose of the question isn't to hold teams to the fire for not having a Problem resolved in X number of days....just wondering how (or IF) you guys GUIDE Problem owners through the process using duration targets?
With Incident Management, having the defined SLAs clearly helps drive the work, but in Problem Management, this isn't as simple.
