Improvement focus then becomes limited to the tool sets available versus what is really critical to success. We’ve also seen the monthly IT service reports or web portal that few look at. They are frequently ignored because the metrics in them have little meaning or significance for the audience viewing them. There is opportunity to provide value to IT leadership by giving them the visibility to make timely accurate decisions using a metrics model that supports decision making.
