The technical support and service management industry is a community of people dedicated to their craft, who strive for excellence every day. These industry experts challenge us to provide better service and support for our customers, elevate our businesses, implement leading edge technology, and improve processes so all our stakeholders can benefit.
As we began this new year, we asked for your help identifying the people who you turn to for guidance, the people who have influenced you the most and helped you advance your career. You helped us identify those people who are shaping the future of technical support and service management.
The people we honor here lead by example. They are practitioners and consultants. They blog. They speak at conferences and events. They tweet and share their insights on social media. They mentor us in the finer points of leadership, process improvement, and technology implementation. They provide guidance for the industry to help us all improve service delivery and advance our careers.
Meet the people who are shaping the future of technical support and service management.
