Why is being a service manager so hard?
One of the hardest jobs at an MSP is the service manager. You are responsible for so many things at once. You need to understand all of your client's needs, communicate with dozens of people a day, ensure the staff is supported, know the status of dozens of tickets, and numerous projects. In addition, you’re probably doing some of the technical work, maybe some AM work, and if you’re the owner there are a half dozen hats you wear in addition to the service manager already.
Join a small group of peers for a six-week course to learn industry-proven techniques that will give you the confidence and tools that will help you to be a great service manager.
