Further training as a team: on the road to success with company training courses

Are you looking for company training for your employees? Then SERVIEW is the right place for you: we enable your team to develop its full potential. You can choose between various options:

  1. As part of our in-house training courses , we come to your company and you pay a flat daily rate for training a group. This option is particularly worthwhile if you have a large number of participants who all need the same knowledge.
  2. With the so-called Seats model , you secure a certain number of training places as a voucher and receive your contingent at a special price. The more seats you buy, the greater the discount. At the time of purchase, you do not have to specify which training courses your employees want to attend and when. The seats can be redeemed flexibly - regardless of the date, location and even the content of the training. Example: You buy a contingent of 20 seats. Of these, 5 employees can do an ITIL Foundation straight away and 5 more can do it six months later, for example. You redeem 3 seats for a Scrum Master training course and 7 for PRINCE2 - either in person at various locations or live online. Advantage: You do not have to book all training courses individually and can be flexible throughout the year. Ideal for companies with varying training needs!

Simply let us know what you want - we will make you an individual offer that is tailored precisely to your requirements!

From home back to the team: how successful hybrid work can succeed

Our working world has undergone rapid change in recent years - mainly triggered by the global pandemic, which has seen an unprecedented shift towards remote working. Many employees appreciate the flexibility and time savings that working from home offers. But at the same time, the challenges and limitations of this model have also become apparent, from technical difficulties to social isolation.

As a result, many companies are now striving for a middle ground and trying to create a working model that combines the benefits of remote working with those of office life. The focus here is on striking a balance between flexibility and the desire to bring teams physically closer together again in order to strengthen collaboration and corporate culture.

This is what a successful hybrid solution could look like:

1. flexible working arrangements

Companies offer employees the opportunity to choose where and when they work within certain framework conditions. This means, for example, that employees can decide to work in the office on certain days and from home on other days - depending on the nature of their tasks and the requirements of the team.

2. technology and infrastructure

Providing the right technology and infrastructure is crucial to enable seamless integration between remote and office work. This includes powerful collaboration tools, digital whiteboards, secure VPN connections, cloud services and agile project management tools that enable effective communication and collaboration - regardless of employee location.

3. adaptation of the office space

Many companies are redesigning their office spaces to encourage collaboration and flexibility. This includes open workspaces that facilitate impromptu meetings and teamwork, as well as quiet areas for focused work. Rooms are also being equipped with multimedia for video conferencing and hybrid meetings to ensure effective communication with remote workers.

4. culture and guidelines

Developing a corporate culture that supports hybrid working is equally important. This includes establishing clear guidelines and expectations regarding availability, communication and performance evaluation. It is important to foster a culture of trust and ownership where employees feel empowered to be productive regardless of their location.

5. leadership and management

Managers play a key role in promoting hybrid working. They need to focus on results rather than attendance and learn to lead teams made up of both remote and office-based workers. This requires adapting leadership methods including regular check-ins, transparent communication and fostering a strong sense of team.

6. continuous adaptation and feedback

Finally, successful companies recognize that implementing a hybrid solution is an ongoing process. They regularly gather feedback from their employees and adapt their approaches accordingly to ensure that the hybrid model meets the needs of all stakeholders and is continuously improved.

By combining these strategies, organizations can create a work environment that offers the best of both worlds: the flexibility and autonomy of remote work with the benefits of face-to-face interaction and collaboration that the office offers. This process is not without its challenges - but it's a goal well worth the effort.

Service Management

Upskilling on a grand scale: our targeted training concept

Do you want your entire company to be aligned and trained according to a uniform ITIL or ITSM standard? Then a training and further education concept that takes into account the level of knowledge and functions of all employees makes sense: Some colleagues start with the basics, others just need a refresher, while still others require specific expert know-how.

Instead of one program for all, we design an ITSM training concept that is tailored to the respective position and future tasks of your employees. So everyone gets the knowledge they need: Not too much and not too little - precisely tailored to the individual job situation. To this end, we divide the workforce into different groups of people with different areas of focus. Example: In the back office, for IT employees and developers, the basics are often sufficient; for management and department heads, the focus is on awareness, while the "ITSM drivers", as specialists, delve deep into the subject matter and therefore have a greater need for training.

We assign suitable training modules to each group of people - from ITSM Essentials to ITIL Foundation and ITIL Master. Video libraries and simulations round off the range of knowledge on offer. Of course, we not only put together a sophisticated training concept for ITIL, but also for other frameworks such as Scrum, PRINCE2, etc. Would you like to find out more? Then please contact us!

Let's play: Learning through play with simulations

Fly to Mars, lead a pizza delivery company to success, rescue astronauts - all with the help of service management! In our simulations, you will experience how service management and ITIL® can be used in practice using exciting gamification. Interactively and in just one day! The group and individual challenges are a lot of fun and also offer valuable learning effects:

  • Practical understanding: Simulations allow theoretical knowledge to be applied in a practical, risk-free environment. This helps to deepen understanding of ITSM processes and leads to better acceptance and application of these processes in day-to-day work.
  • Teamwork and communication: ITSM simulations often require teamwork to achieve common goals. This can improve communication skills within a group.
  • Problem-solving skills: ITSM simulations present participants with realistic challenges. This improves their troubleshooting and problem-solving skills, which is invaluable in real IT operations.

Best Practice Basics: What does an ITIL tool assessor do?

Only those organizations that ITIL rights holder PeopleCert has appointed as an authorized testing body may call themselves ITIL Accredited Tool Vendors. These organizations are tasked with checking ITSM software solutions for ITIL compliance and carrying out the necessary qualification training - as part of the Accredited Tool Vendors program.

We are proud that SERVIEW belongs to this exclusive circle!

An ITIL tool assessor has two main tasks: It ensures that ...

  1. ... ITSM solutions meet the strict requirements and guidelines of the ITIL framework - and therefore the highest standards in the industry.
  2. ... the professionals who design, develop and implement ITSM software are highly qualified and are well-trained ITIL experts.

There are five different levels of ITIL accreditation: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Platinum Global - depending on two main factors:

  • the number of ITIL best practices implemented in the tools, which are checked against over 650 criteria
  • the number of specialists with relevant ITIL certifications.

Those who have passed the extensive evaluation and certification processes receive the official seal of approval and can call themselves Accredited Tool Vendors (ATV).

The role of an ITIL tool assessor is important because selecting a tool that fits well with an organization's business objectives and ITIL processes is essential to the effective implementation of ITIL and the achievement of service excellence. By providing an objective assessment, the assessor helps organizations make informed decisions that help increase efficiency, improve service quality and optimize IT service delivery.

Are you a tool provider and would like to have your tool certified by us - or are you a company looking for suitable software? We will be happy to advise you!

Guide for IT managers: How to successfully implement a service desk tool

An effective service desk tool is now essential for every company. In this article, SERVIEW consultant Madlen Lipski provides IT managers who have not yet implemented IT service management, or have implemented it inadequately, with comprehensive guidance on selecting and using the right service desk tool.


1. catalog of requirements and prioritization with the MoSCoW method
The basis of every successful implementation is a thorough requirements analysis. It is important to systematically record the requirements and prioritize them using methods such as the MoSCoW method. It helps to divide the requirements into must-haves, should-haves, could-havesand won't-haves. The integration of ITIL practices ensures that the requirements are in line with the best practices for IT service management.

2. selecting the right tool
The selection of the right tool should be based strictly on the defined requirements. It is advisable to create a long list of possible tools and then refine this into a short list. Finally, a proof of concept should be carried out to test the practical suitability of the selected tool. This analytical approach helps to avoid being influenced by the sales skills of the providers and to make the decision based on the suitability of the tool.

3. planning and preparing the implementation
Careful planning is the be-all and end-all here. This includes carrying out pilot projects and taking organizational change management into account. The aim is to make the transition as smooth as possible and ensure that employees are prepared for the changes.

4. configuration and customizing of the tool
Adapting the tool to the specific needs of the company is a critical step. It is crucial that the customization of the tool reflects the previously analyzed and optimized business processes. This is not only about technical settings, but also about customizing the user interface, workflows, notifications and integrations to seamlessly integrate the tool into the existing systems and processes.

5. introduction and acceptance
The successful introduction of a new tool depends heavily on employee acceptance. It is important to allow sufficient time for training and adjustments and to actively seek feedback from employees. Open communication about the benefits of the new tool can help to reduce resistance and promote acceptance.

6. evaluation and performance measurement
After implementation, it is important to regularly evaluate the performance of the tool. This should be done using the metrics and objectives defined in advance. Continuous monitoring and adjustment of these criteria is crucial to ensure that the tool is used effectively and meets the needs of the company.

Conclusion: Implementing a service desk tool is a complex process that requires careful planning, selection and customization. By following these steps, IT managers can ensure that the selected tool not only meets the technical requirements, but is also accepted by the employees and offers real added value for the company.

Fun & games in the IT world: The jester takes it with humor

In the fourth part of our archetype series, we look at the Fool: bold, mischievous and original, this archetype sees life as a crazy playground of possibilities. Fun, unconventionality and the ability to turn things upside down are paramount to the Fool - as is his sense of humor, sarcasm and silliness. He avoids doing things that are boring.

The following characteristics characterize this archetype:

  • Playful communication: The jester addresses his audience in a light, often humorous way. This quickly breaks the ice and creates an immediate emotional connection.
  • A new perspective: The Fool has the ability to see things differently. Marketing campaigns based on this archetype often surprise with unconventional approaches and innovative ideas.
  • Often different: the fool is not afraid to cross boundaries or break taboos. He takes the freedom to think outside the box and question established norms.
  • Always flexible: Like the joker in a deck of cards, the jester can take on any form required to achieve his goals. This adaptability makes him particularly versatile and unpredictable.

The fool meets the IT world

The IT industry, known for its rapid development and innovative character, is the perfect breeding ground for the jester archetype: IT companies often use humorous and unconventional marketing campaigns to promote their products. Such campaigns reflect the spirit of the Fool by attracting attention while making complex technological concepts accessible. Companies that embrace this archetype encourage their employees to push boundaries and challenge conventional ways of thinking and working. In this way, the Jester helps to clear the way for ground-breaking ideas. He reminds us that progress is often achieved by breaking the rules and leaving the beaten track.

Examples of brands that successfully use the jester archetype include companies such as M&M, Sixt, Media Markt, Fanta, Pringles and Old Spice.

What is the archetype behind your IT brand?

Find out - with archetypal brand positioning from UnitedCreation! In the workshop, agency head Andreas Lehnert introduces you to the archetype model, locates your brand between the different poles and works with you to identify your archetype. Both the values of your company and the character traits of your brand translated from them play a role here. You will also be given methods for bringing your archetype to life.

Content creation: What does that actually mean?

Content is king: what Bill Gates said back in 1996 applies today more than ever. With content that is informative, helpful and original, companies can address their customers in a targeted manner, build a long-term relationship with them and increase the visibility of their own brand at the same time.

The process of creating content, usually for digital media, is known as content creation. The spectrum of different formats ranges from texts (blog posts, articles, white papers) to graphics (infographics, visual guides) and videos to podcasts, social media posts and more.

A content creation process usually comprises the following steps:

  • Target group analysis: Understanding who the target group is, what interests them and what problems or needs they have.
  • Topic research: Finding ideas for content that is of interest and benefit to the target group.
  • Content planning: Development of a content plan or calendar that determines when and on which platforms the content will be published.
  • Creation: Production of content taking into account quality, relevance and search engine optimization (SEO).
  • Publication: Publication of the content on various channels to ensure optimal distribution and visibility.
  • Analysis: Monitoring and, if necessary, adjustment of the strategy based on feedback and usage data.

Content creation is therefore more than just producing content: It is also planning and communication strategy - and therefore a valuable tool for companies to strengthen their brand and spread their message. Do you need support with this? The marketing professionals at UnitedCreation will be happy to assist you!

Wow content, please!

Storytelling: the art of telling gripping stories

In the daily flood of information, it is not so easy to stand out from the crowd and be remembered. This is exactly where storytelling comes in: It is the art of telling stories that captivate and create an emotional connection. It's about engaging readers or viewers with a story that conveys values, messages or a brand's identity - often by depicting human experiences, challenges and successes.

Storytelling is characterized by the following key elements:

  • Characters with whom the audience can identify: These characters experience challenges or adventures that reflect relevant problems or situations.
  • A plot that attracts attention: it usually involves a conflict or a problem that needs to be solved and leads the recipients through ups and downs.
  • An emotional connection created by the narrative: Stories that evoke feelings are remembered longer and promote a deeper connection to the brand.
  • Educational moments or insights that provide value to the audience - be it through entertainment, information or inspiration.
  • Authenticity, which ensures that the story appears credible and genuine. Authentic storytelling increases trust in the brand.



In the digital age, companies use different formats for storytelling, including text, video, audio and interactive platforms.

Do you want to know how to approach and implement good storytelling? The "Storytelling in 180 minutes" workshop at BMPK24 will give you the most important basics.
