Problem Management is not rocket science. It's relatively simple, and if it's done right, it can have a huge impact on your organisation.

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.

By the conclusion of this masterclass, participants will be equipped with a deep understanding of IT Problem Management principles and practices. They will be empowered to identify, classify, analyse, and manage problems proactively and reactively, aiming to reduce the occurrence of incidents, minimise impact on business operations, and improve the overall quality of IT services.
