Aug. 21, 2012 - PRLog -- The Linium team and nationally renowned ITIL guru - Ralph Nabicht hosted a hands-on, rocket-fueled exploration of ITSM - through an interactive, Apollo 13 mission simulator training for a major healthcare company in Minneapolis, Minnesota on August 15th.  Attendees experienced first-hand how ITSM best practices can improve business performance and profitability in any organization.

Students experienced ITIL® concepts and processes through an interactive simulation game that used real-life situations taken from the Apollo 13 mission. Throughout the training game various ITIL® processes were necessary to enable ground staff and the crew to resolve problems and to make timely changes to the spacecraft configuration and its trajectory. A post "mission" review included ITSM best practices in configuration management, problem management, service-level management and change management. In a globally connected, information-based business world, IT infrastructure is core to the business growth. Students came away with a deep understanding of the dependencies between processes, changing priorities, cost of not doing it right, and how responsibility and process chaos can add to the complexity of decision-making.

Student comments praised the mission and included:
•   I have a completely different view and respect for the Change Management / Team/Manager, I now understand why we need to become an integral part of the ITSM lifecycle. - Application Developer
•   I have a better understanding of what our customers probably feel like when they call to present an Incident and we do not know how to respond effectively or efficiently. - Service Desk Agent

This uniquely experiential learning simulation that educated students on the importance of ITSM and ITIL processes through a cohesive, team environment where inspired students brought home the importance of proven process – one that can bring IT infrastructure “home safely” or leave it “lost in space”.
