End-to-end Service Management and ITSM Goodness
I have been consulting and working in the IT Service Management industry for over 30 years, including consulting since 1994.
I’ve carried out a number of industry roles and have been involved with organisations such as SDI (for 30+ years), itSMF UK (since the 90s, plus I was CEO from 2015 – 18). More recently I have been part of the re-development of ITIL with Axelos – I am co-author of 3 recent ITIL publications; ITIL Practitioner (2015), ITIL4 Foundation (2019) and ITIL4 Create Deliver and Support (2020).
I am proud to have been part of the re-birth of ITIL into a new, forward-thinking, agile and ‘end-to-end’ approach. I’m also proud of my involvement with the SDI Service Desk standard, which I’ve seen used on many occasions to drive and grow individuals and teams to new levels of quality and achievement.
In consulting I help organisations to achieve customer success and business benefits quickly. I work with customer service operations, IT and service management teams, management and C-level teams, large global enterprises and also start-up and small/medium-sized businesses.
I use a mix of proven approaches, pragmatism, common sense and experience, guiding clients quickly to practical success.
My focus is on helping you to deliver the best possible service to your customers.
Whatever your issues or requirements, I offer expert and ‘big picture’ advice and guidance, based on experience of over 500 projects, not driven by any particular methodology or technology. I deliver value to organisations of all sizes and across sectors, with a range of simple fast, effective services, such as workshops, reviews, tactical and strategic consultancy.
In 25+ years of consulting most of value that I have been able to deliver is in helping people and organisations to work together successfully – a huge part of what I do is advise on culture, people management, structure, customer focus and general business management.
I keep up with trends across the industry and advise clients on strategy, direction, tooling, operational focus, recruitment, business planning and all aspects of service delivery.
I work with a portfolio of partners and a network of trusted associates to provide a full set of services and options to meet your needs. Usually it takes only a few days of work to achieve value. If you need more support,or ‘hands-on’ work, we can provide that too.
Please contact me directly for an initial informal chat to discuss your needs without obligation.
