How many times have you tried to get your TV or Internet to work, fix an appliance on the fritz, tried to self-install something or needed help with a computer problem? You might even spend eons with a customer service rep doesn’t always understand the problem or can’t clearly explain the solution, so they send a technician and you spend another few days waiting for them.

How many times have you received this email?
Dear IT Team,
I’m writing to remind you (again) that my supervisors still cannot perform their Quality Monitoring because there are no recordings since October.

I’m not going to accept this any longer and would like your team to put a plan together immediately to demonstrate that you have this under control and I won’t have to receive emails from my supervisors and managers that they can’t get their job done because of IT group.
