Method-based problem diagnosis is rarely understood and even more rarely practiced, and yet it offers an effective means to solving intermittent or long-running IT problems.

In this presentation Paul will outline an IT specific problem resolution method called RPR and describes the core principles. He will describe how you can benefit from the approach and illustrates the effectiveness of RPR with two case studies from the finance industry.

Everyone is welcome. Refreshments provided. Admission is free.
