Problem Management Professional
The Problem Management Professional certification course was developed in partnership with HDI.
While incident management focuses on "fixing it fast," problem management focuses on determining the root cause, identifying temporary workarounds, and applying permanent fixes so that incidents don't happen again. Additionally, problem management uses trending data from incident and event management to identify potential failures and correct issues before the customer is impacted (i.e., "the incident that never happened").
Through case study exercises, participants will learn how to design, integrate, and implement a process that includes both reactive and proactive problem management activities.
