Putting the HEART into IT Service Management

IT service management champions customer focus, but doesn’t tell us the how. Meaning it doesn’t provide a framework for how to be customer focused.

Human-centred design shows us how to be customer focused, but falls short in understanding the complexity of the technology to design and support the customer experience.

Katrina emphasises the need for a holistic balance between process and people – something all too often missing, and I think many of us can be guilty of swaying too far one way or the other. If you’re thinking about what the next steps are for IT Service Management in your career or your organisation, I think you’ll find her book (and her training, which I was fortunate enough to sit in on last year as well) incredibly beneficial! Thank you, Katrina, for working so hard on this. I am eagerly looking forward to the next installment!

The intersection between experience and IT service management - that is where the magic lies: in humanising IT.

I have just finished reading Katrina Macdermid's book on Humanising IT. I must say, it is a fantastic, entertaining and on-the-money guide to making IT more human-friendly. Much of my time in IT leadership has been spent trying to put words to what Katrina so eloquently describes in just the right amount of detail. It’s rare to read any IT service management text that talks about “lived experience” of customers, and empathy with business users.

Courier just delivered the book. looking forward to reading it. In my opinion it should be a reading material for high school students to build passion for technology and user interaction in a very positive and nurturing way.

Your Humanising IT™ Guide

Humanising IT™ prioritises human-centered technology experiences by designing accessible, usable, and valuable processes. Our approach goes beyond functionality, aiming to make experiences emotionally resonant and personally meaningful.

HIT Global Ltd

HIT Global Ltd was founded in November 2022 when Katrina and Mark joined forces to take Katrina’s book “Human-centred design for IT service management” to market. Their shared belief is that human experience is often missed when it comes to designing IT services. Humanising IT™ seeks to bridge this gap by introducing the concept and techniques of human-centred design and integrating them into IT service management.

As we all know, technology is playing an ever-increasing role in every aspect of our lives, so IT service must also evolve.

Human experience is the new frontier, and Humanising IT™ is the solution.
