Agenda Establishing the Rules Establishing Boundaries Choosing Teams Equipment Playing the Game Settling Disputes Having Fun 3 © ITSM Academy

Is your ITSM implementation like playing a game with family or friends? Not enough players? Missing pieces or parts or equipment? Rules not followed? Rule book missing? People “cheating” People get tired of “playing” before the end? TOTALLY FRUSTRATING?!?!?!?!?!?! 4 © ITSM Academy

Establish the Rules “What game are we playing?” Choose your framework (ITIL, 6σ, CMMI) “Has anyone read the rules?“ Get educated and do awareness early “Free Parking?” Adopt and Adapt “Children at recess or after school play games. The games involve rules, and these rules order their conduct. …Without rules there is no game.” ~ John Dewey 5 © ITSM Academy

Establish Boundaries In-bounds? Out of bounds? Set scope and stick to it “That’s not fair…” Set high expectations and watch people achieve them “Can I join?” Decide on additional processes or roles 6 © ITSM Academy

Choose Teams (1) “Who wants to be the banker?” Trust someone with authority to make changes “One, two, three—not it!” Develop accountability charts “Monopoly tokens” Identify roles needed for your implementation 7 © ITSM Academy

Choose Teams (2) Eenie, Meenie, Minie, Moe… Use a balance of personalities, not skills or randomness, to organize “Who’s my partner?” Use experience wisely—mentoring and coaching “Go to jail, go directly to jail…” People are not ‘broke”—don’t try to fix them 8 © ITSM Academy

Identify Equipment “Let’s look in the rules” Put pieces where they belong on the “board” “Is an Ace one or eleven?” Don’t try to make pieces “fit”—avoid imbalance “Whose turn is it?” Establish and stick to process and procedure 9 © ITSM Academy

Distribute Equipment and Positions “What’s the score?” Avoid the tendency to “fix” the score “You’re too young to play” Avoid keeping people out of the game due to inexperience-coach them “What color do you want?” Get input from the “players” 10 © ITSM Academy

Start Playing the Game! “Roll the dice” Start with easy first steps “Ready, Set, Go!” Step forward regardless of the risk or consequences “Go Fish!” Sometimes it will be good ….. and sometimes not so 11 © ITSM Academy

Settle Disputes “Move back two spaces” As a challenge arises look in the rules or make a “house” rule acceptable to everyone “Adding houses and hotels” Adding processes and roles as you move forward “I quit” Prepare for resistance or burn-out 12 © ITSM Academy

Have Fun! “Gin rummy!” Celebrate the results “I could’ve won that hand” Also celebrate the effort “Who wants to play again?” Keep people motivated and on track 13 © ITSM Academy
