    Learning Objective: Defining Managed Services. Lecture Notes:

    Before we can implement any process or procedure, we must first have a full understanding of what it is we are intending to accomplish. The same holds true as we continue to manage this process or procedures. This should begin with a definition.

    Just like managing a computer, before we can tackle a problem, we need to understand what that system does. What is its function? Participants Notes:

    Learning Objective: Understand the benefits of thinking outside-the-box. Lecture Notes:

    Inside-the-box thinking is valuable for understanding the day to day operations of the organization. It is important, however, to promote an ESPRIT DE CORPS of outside-the-box thinking. Reward team members for presenting new “outside-the-box” ideas by not dismissing the ideas without first considering them. Act upon the ideas that are appropriate solutions and acknowledge the contributors.

    Outside the Box VideoOutside the Box Video

    Learning Objective: Example of outside-the-box thinking. Lecture Notes:

    Men in Black, 1997. In the film clip, Will Smith is not only questioning the circumstances of his

    dilemma (why he is there) but also takes the time to assess his situation, take stock of his assets, and then act.

    Outside the Box exerciseOutside the Box exercise

    Learning Objective: Understand the benefits of thinking outside-the-box. Lecture Notes:

    Generally, when presented with a problem people will seek to solve the problem within the preserved confines set before them. In this exercise, you were never limited to keeping your marks within the confines of the dots; the only goal was to connect all of the dots. This can apply to many other situations, where the answer lies in looking beyond the problem at hand.

    Learning Objective: Applying outside the box thinking to day to day problems. Lecture Notes:

    Through the proper reporting and reviewing of Kaseya logs, you can evaluate and act on problems in a proactive manner. Even surprises can be addressed more timely and effectively.

    Common Kaseya logs include: • Script logs • Agent logs • Application logs • System logs • Event logs

    We will need to conduct regular reviews of the log data, in the form of

    reports, to assess the health of our environment. Report data will allow us to assess potential and actual problems, develop solutions, and report on our success and failures.

    The process repeats itself, day after day, every day. Participants Notes:
