The importance of People in the Service Management Triangle
Many of us are aware of the combustion triangle, as we are the Service Triangle. The combustion triangle illustrates the three elements a fire needs to ignite and continue to burn given that a fire naturally occurs when the elements are present and combined in the right mixture. The same is true of the Service Triangle, and its three elements of People, Process, and Technology. So why does Service Management so often focus on Process and Technology, and forget the most fragile and valuable of these elements - People ? This session will explore how we use Service Management best practices across the Enterprise to engage with other organisational departments, such as HR, to protect and develop this critical element to Service Management success.
