How simulations can increase your ITSM performance

Thursday 2:30pm - 3:00pm, itSMFnz (itSMFnz 1 Room)

Organisations are always challenging organisational changes. Teams have to adopt new way of working, new teams are formed, new tools are used, new services are going to be deployed. How do we get all employees motivated to take the challenge? How can we develop new competences so employees can deal with the new way of working? For a long time simulations are the perfect learning instrument to develop those new skills. It's interactive, it's fun, it's realistic and very powerful. In this presentation we will explain what sims are, how they can help, how they are used in several projects/customers.
