Make IT service effectiveness surveys worth the effort
Conclusion: Withouthonest and informed feedback from clients on the effectiveness of the services delivered, IT management must rely on their intuition to devise ways to enhance services and measure the department’s performance.
The ideal way to obtain the insights needed to enhance IT services and measure performance is to conduct an IT Service Effectiveness, or Customer Satisfaction Survey, on a regular basis and act on the findings. Actions might include, for instance, justifying an increase in the IT Expense budget or acquiring extra computing resources to improve online systems performance.
