Support Training and Certification
3-day training seminar, $1,695
Whether you provide support services for a corporate help desk, to external customers, or on behalf of a third party, you are almost certainly under pressure to extract as much productivity as possible from your front line resources. Significant time could be saved if they had access to each others experience.
Support organizations report that 60 to 90 percent of the problems they solve have been solved before, and that they are reinventing answers and fixes that already exist somewhere in the organization. The opportunity to learn from our service interactions and increase the return on the investment in knowledge is huge! This comprehensive 2½ day workshop will help you to achieve this.
Knowledge-Centered Support (KCS) is a business methodology that was developed and tested by members of the Consortium for Service Innovation (CSI). The objective of KCS is to create an environment where resources solve a problem once and use the solution repeatedly. Organizations have shown that adoption of KCS can improve operational efficiency, customer satisfaction and employee morale. This workshop explores the need for a knowledge-centered strategy, the organizing principles of KCS, and the benefits that it delivers.
The workshop teaches attendees how to create and maintain knowledge as people solve problems and answer questions, and how knowledge best practices can improve service levels and support center efficiency. Attendees will also be introduced to the five processes needed to manage content quality and the life cycle of knowledge, the best practices for assessing individual and team contribution to the knowledge base, and how knowledge can empower customer self-service on the web.
