this is always one that i never really know the answer..
What would be the first things to do when setting up a PM function. I believe there is a service desk and basic IM function, so how do you build on that. Yes this is for a job interview

I wouldn't build on that. If you do then your problem management function will be too tied to incident management as it is at present and therefore too narrow in (practical) scope.
I would define what is required of problem management and then look to see how much is available from service desk and incident management and at what else is required from them and elsewhere.
Try getting that over at interview!

appreciate that, i think thats a fair answer and therefore as you say, its always inportant to see what the objective is and kinda work around that, seeing what can be made avaiable and i spose looking longer term, make recommendations on what can be implemented or improved
