4 Hours: In Agile product development, a minimum viable product (MVP) has just those core features that allow the product to be deployed, and no more. Gathering insights from an MVP is typically less expensive than deploying a product with more features because it reduces both costs and risk.
How can IT Operations teams use the best practices utilized by Agile product teams and apply to IT Service Management? Simply put, by changing up the “P”. Instead of minimum viable product, we focus on minimum viable process. Let’s face it, bureaucratic and overly risk-averse IT service management (ITSM) processes can be a real constraint in the IT value stream; particularly in organizations that are adopting Agile and DevOps practices.
This 4-hour workshop describes how to ensure your ITSM processes provide ‘Just Enough’ control to meet business needs without impeding optimum flow. Make your process more agile, by applying #AgileITSM.
Course includes facilitated exercises that produce deliverables you can put to use immediately.
