ISEB Problem Management examinations

For my many and varied sin's, I was invited yesterday to become the Chief Examiner for an ISEB exam in the area of ITIL and Problem Management. Must learn to duck when someone shouts "incoming". No more to be said at this point in time as it will be announced in a few weeks time and some folks have to sign things. It has a lot of relevance to the work we have been doing with Kepner-Tragoe for some years at Sun, as mentioned here.

One of the quiet trends I have seen over the last 6 months is serious interest in ITIL among a significant subset of the customers I meet with a 50:50 split between those who really want to use it to improve their business and those who want to be seen to use it.

The exam board meeting in London at the BCS buidling near Covent Garden which has more outdoor shops (Field and Trek, North Face, etc) than Llanberis or Ambleside, but no mountains! I have learned that BCS members can book a room there to use for a meeting.

I used the Wrexham and Shropshire train from Shrewsbury to London which really does put Virgin to shame, even in cattle class and for 1/3 of the price. It was much fuller than when I last used it about 2 months ago. Seems word is getting round, though it is slow in comparison.

Off to see Wayne do his Enterprise Architecture pitch for the BCS in Aberystwyth this evening, then dog and Clive are going for a run. Following the Highland Fling and the mandatory rest week I have found it really hard to get back into my training again.
