You may enjoy our IT Problem Management Masterclass where you will be taught the following:

Incident Management VS Problem Management

"Incident" and "Problem" may seem like similar words, but they have completely different meanings in the realm of Problem Management.

Incident: It refers to an unplanned interruption to a service or the failure of a component of a service that hasn't yet impacted service.

Problem: It is made up of more than one related incident or those that have common issues. Therefore, a problem can be more severe than an incident requiring more follow-up.

A problem is not an incident, but an incident can create a problem if it’s recurring. Managing an incident means fixing it and restoring the system as fast as possible.

A problem is resolved by discovering its root cause to ensure that new incidents don’t occur.

Incident Management is getting the system back in order quickly, whilst Problem Management is working to find and resolve the underlying cause of the error that has resulted in several incidents.

Also, if you establish an effective Problem Management process, it will mean that you can push forward more effectively with proactive processes, such as Availability Management.

Our Critical Thinking training course in IT empowers professionals to approach complex technical challenges with a logical and analytical mindset. It improves problem-solving, decision-making, risk assessment, innovation, communication, collaboration, and ethical considerations, leading to more successful IT operations, projects, and career growth.
