ITIL® 4 and Problem-Solving

In this virtual workshop, we will look at rectifying the general lack of understanding of problem-solving. We will introduce the concept of Divergent and Convergent Thinking, the challenges facing the adoption of the problem-solving method, and the benefits of root cause analysis.

 

Problem-solving is one of the key components of the ITIL® framework. Every incident has at least two answers. One is the Technical Cause (the change or event that triggered the incident). The second one is called Root Cause (the company condition that is the underlying reason for the incident and 'WHY' it happened) that needs to be identified and removed. This second reason is commonly known as the root of the incident or the Root Cause.

Risk Management - Working with Uncertainty

Uncertainty exists in all aspects of our lives, whatever their nature. We take a risk without thinking about it; some of us take more risk than others, some of the risks will be accepted, and some will be mitigated. While it may not be possible to predict all the risks with 100% certainty, we can proactively respond to risks instead of reacting to them when it happens.

 

In this session, you will understand the basics of risk management, learn the knowledge and skills needed to implement risk management processes, and actively manage risks s to achieve consistent and predictable results for your activities, projects, and operations. You will be introduced to a simple but effective risk management framework to surface unknowns early, separate issues from risks, and identify an appropriate action plan to achieve the highest success.
