ITIL® Master, Author
& Global Ambassador

Katrina Macdermid

To me it's a " no brainer".

IT organisations need to adopt Human Centred Design principles.

After all, we are not supporting technology; we are supporting humans.

SLOW, EXPENSIVE & REMOVED

If best practice is best

I love having the opportunity to train IT professionals not just ITIL; together we learn how to create great customer &  employee experience.

From my experience, I no longer believe consultants can bring change, what I do believe is I can work with your people so they can deliver great change.

A question I often ask.

I love being part of the service management community allowing the platform to voice my passion on changing how IT Services are designed.  

We need to think about the different types of humans using the technology we design.

HUMAN CENTRED DESIGN IS ALWAYS ABOUT PEOPLE YOU ARE DESIGNING SERVICES FOR - ALWAYS!

To me it’s a ” no brainer”  IT organisations need to adopt Human Centred Design principles. After all, we are not supporting technology; we are supporting humans
