Feature Details

  • Continual Improvement Management Workbench

    The Workbench provides a single‑pane‑of‑glass view into all improvements in flight. Get details on improvement opportunities including current status, time to completion, and resources allocated. 

    Improvement initiatives are ranked based on ROI and effort, giving organizations the data they need to validate budget and resource decisions.

    Managers can reallocate and reprioritize improvements in line with business goals using an intuitive, drag‑and‑drop interface. This makes approval discussions quick and efficient, while enabling transparency into improvements across the organization.

  • Value Realization Dashboard

    This dashboard displays the progress of all initiatives tracked in the application to compare outcomes to expectations related to the overall business goals of the organization.

    For instance, improving the KPI “Mean Time to Resolution” improves employee productivity, which is a metric of interest to the organization’s leadership. The dashboard displays progress in these KPIs as they relate to the overall business goals.

    Organizations can easily configure the KPIs related to each improvement initiative. The Value Realization Dashboard enables organizations to see the returns on their investments, while identifying other improvement opportunities.

  • Coaching

    The Coaching module is a plugin for facilitating the coaching of service desk agents by conditionally configuring coaching opportunities (critical moments in a process).

    Managers can set rules that automatically trigger the virtual coach for agents based on decision criteria. They can provide additional guidance through a continuous feedback loop, enabling the agent to gain greater confidence with improved skills.

    The virtual coach contains pre‑configured coaching items, such as best practice tips, videos, and guidelines.

  • Out-of-the-box Integrations

    Managers can create improvement opportunities right within the applications they use on a daily basis. Out‑of‑the‑box integrations automatically convert opportunities to a record within the Continual Improvement Management application.

    For instance, if the service desk manager notices consistent SLA breaches on incidents, they can instantly create an improvement initiative right from the Incident Management application. This creates an opportunity record in the Continual Improvement Management application along with associated metrics, setting the baseline for the Improvement Manager to review/approve and trigger the downstream activities for improvement.

    Out‑of‑the‑box integrations are available for Survey and Assessments, Performance Analytics, Idea/Demand/Project/Stories, GRC, Audit compliance, Benchmarks, etc. 

  • Domain Separation

    Domain separation gives organizations the ability to define improvement opportunities at the domain level. Managed Service Providers can create continual improvement process and tasks to cater to the needs of their end customers.

  • Embedded Analytics

    The Continual Improvement Management application comes with embedded analytics, indicators, and dashboards. Managers can easily configure KPIs, set targets, track milestones, and watch trends and details to monitor progress.

    A built‑in integration with Performance Analytics gives customers the ability to drill down into a process to understand the impact of improvements. The power of the data that comes with Performance Analytics also gives managers the ability to understand gaps that should be remediated, and processes that need to be improved.

  • Improvement Register

    The Improvement register captures, tracks, and manages all improvement opportunities in a single interface. It gives managers a simple way to drive and track end‑to‑end improvement process.  Once the improvement initiatives are approved, they are automatically moved to the next state. Improvement tasks for each initiative can be rolled up to show progress on that initiative.

  • PCDA Framework

    The Continual Improvement Management application is based on the Plan‑Do‑Check‑Act cycle to drive continual improvements. This gives organizations a simple framework to drive improvements, not only to services, but also across functions, processes, teams, and individuals.

    The application gives organizations the flexibility to use the improvement model of their choice. The framework is generic, model‑agnostic, and fits the needs of all popular improvement models like ITIL, Six Sigma, IT4IT, Agile, etc.
