As the world makes the critical advancement away from IT service management (ITSM) to enterprise service management (ESM), there are some fundamental things that can drive successful adoption for your organization.   

When not in a Boardroom talking to clients about IT risks or on a plane travelling; Lou spends his time available time working with the Boards of Football Canada and Football Nova Scotia or actively on a gridiron as a coach at both the High School and Provincial levels.    His proudest achievements are developing future leaders through sport, a collection of Provincial titles, and a roster of clients that others would trade future draft picks to even talk to.  

During the session the Lou will leverage his 35+ year passion of football and the lessons it has taught him about how to drive success in transitioning from ITSM to ESM. This isn’t a deep dive on the fundamentals of ‘X’ and ‘O’s but will cover some interesting topics such as focusing on gaming fundamentals, recognizing what you’re good at and where the team has special talents, the importance of coaching and recruiting, adaptability and responsiveness and how to rally a bunch of individuals to the single goal of playing to win.  

This lively discussion will leave you with a better understanding of what to tackle next in your ESM journey and what us coaches really think about when preparing for battle.
