Question
I'm planning to introduce this concept for my working group (actual team size: 25).
Fields of application:
60% technology management data centre (SAN & Virtualisation),
20% development of new IT services,
10% help desk for customers,
10% pure research work.
Key point: trade-off between efforts (for introducing these concepts for the entire group) and benefits regarding process optimization & working efficiency.
I'm looking for both positive AND negative feedback.
