Practitioner Radio Episode 21 - Culture & ITSM Transformation Projects
ITSM Transformations Are Really People Change Projects
When it comes down to it you can buy a feature rich ITSM tool and even great looking documentation but you cannot buy the hearts and minds of your people.
The culture of your organization has a major impact on your ability to deploy IT Service Management processes within your organization
Join Chris and I as we discuss the difference between behaviour and cultural change and why understanding your cultural environment is a critical success factor for your ITSM project.

Troy’s Thunderbolt Tip: Remember that culture and behavior are two different things. Behavior can be adjusted in the short term through careful management. Culture will only change after time has passed and the transformation was proven successful. Focus on short term actions on changing behavior - with an goal of long term culture impact.
