The Problem Management Team is responsible for minimizing the adverse impact on the business caused by errors within MGTI infrastructure, and to prevent recurrence of incidents related to these errors. To achieve this goal, Problem Management seeks to determine the root cause of incidents and then initiate actions to improve or correct the situation.

Responsibilities

  • Analyze SEV1s assigned to determine root cause, the resolution, and identify and recommend any improvements that can be made to prevent recurrence
  • Manage service relationships with assigned MMCo operating company groups by chairing weekly meetings - reviewing outages, resolutions, and ongoing corrective action items; where required, work with the operating company IT to manage problem initiatives
  • Analyze incident volumes and trends to identify process or technological improvements that will reduce incident volumes, streamline their resolution, or enable incidents to be resolved at lower support tiers
  • An example would be to identify an application generating hundreds of password reset calls to the service desk monthly when there is already a self-service password reset feature in the application
  • The problem manager would work with the teams to identify ways to increase utilization of self service to save time for colleagues and support groups
  • Conduct post mortem investigations on critical incidents, identify and recommend corrective action items, and produce a business facing document detailing the incident, root cause, and steps for remediation
  • Examine potential areas for service improvement and raise proposals with senior MGTI management, including the raising of Requests for Change
  • Develop, co-ordinate and promote the effective functioning of problem management activities across all of MGTI's support and engineering teams
