The help desk is the point at which every frustration, every concern, and every mistake known to humanity is brought for resolution. Typically staffed by lower-level and often new personnel, help desks often have a reputation for minimal service and buck-passing. It shouldn't be this way, and doesn't have to be, there's a lot of information out there about how to effectively manage and coordinate help services, and a great deal of information about how important is to do so. But like many aspects of IT, this knowledge doesn't always make it into the field in many organizations.;A while ago, TechRepublic ran a series on how to set up and manage help desks. You can read the series here;Setting up a successful help desk--physical considerations;(http://www.techrepublic.com/article/setting-up-a-successful-help-desk-physical-considerations/) and;Try these efficiency strategies when setting up a successful help desk;(http://www.techrepublic.com/article/try-these-efficiency-strategies-when-setting-up-a-successful-help-desk/).;For this SLP you are expected to evaluate in a 2-3 page paper, the best strategies for a successful help desk within an organization. Identify three (3) best practices and provide some examples on how and why those strategies are important. Because this is a SLP, you are expected to discuss the topic with practical approach.;Do you have experiences that you can describe about user support (as a user or as an IT person)?;Why were they good or bad?;What suggestions do you have?
