The Incident/Problem Manager’s primary responsibility is identifying and classifying emerging incidents and ensuring their prompt resolution. They are responsible for addressing and solving service failures as quickly and effectively as possible while providing prompt, clear incident communication to internal personnel (C-level, business leads, technical). These managers work with the teams directly associated with the service issue (as well as other relevant personnel) and push process from all business units to ascertain appropriate resolution by prioritizing tasks and problems. Once the issue has been resolved, the Incident Manager works with the team to identify and pursue potential measures to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future. In addition to responding to these situations, Incident Managers work proactively to improve the incident management process and ensure that proper reporting of all incidents is compiled and submitted for review.
