Who should do this course?
The Contact Centre Management Fundamentals training course will benefit anyone who wants to understand the fundamentals that apply to all inbound contact centres including roles such as:
- An existing Team Leader who is preparing to move into a more senior role.
- An existing contact centre manager who is looking to learn global best-practice operations and/or who was never taught any formal contact centre management skills.
- A newcomer to contact centre management.
- A senior executive with accountability for the contact centre channel that needs to learn the core fundamentals to enable them to effectively manage the channel.
16 Hours of Live, Facilitated Learning delivered via 4 x 4-Hour sessions:
The Contact Centre Manager Fundamentals course is delivered live via Zoom across 4 x 4-hour online modules.
The four modules are delivered across four consecutive days to maximise learning effectiveness.
Regular breaks are included to ensure you can maintain focus throughout the course and with just half the day committed to learning, there is still some bandwidth left to enable you to stay on top of any pressing issues.
Module 1: Begin at the Beginning – Customer Wait Time
For the Contact Centre to achieve Customer, Employee & Organisational goals requires a masterly level understanding of Service Level, Response Time and associated Wait Time metrics.
We share the practices that matter – and the ones that don’t. Along with Service Level Recovery plans, interpreting Readerboard data and improving queue management in real-time.
Module 2: Measuring Contact Centre Success
What is ‘efficiency’ in a Contact Centre? Setting & measuring the right KPIs for different job roles is a senior management responsibility. Because when you get it right – you get great performance.
When it’s not right – or based on a misaligned understanding of how Contact Centres really work – you get barriers to performance.
And we share our popular Agent & Team Leader P, Q & A performance system – so easy to understand and explain it helps transform Contact Centre performance almost immediately.
Module 3: Forecasting Practices
Healthy Workforce Management practices are foundational to Centre success. While not everyone needs to ‘do’ WFM, everyone needs to understand what is involved and how they contribute to success.
Time Series Forecasting, Bottoms Up Forecasting, Blending in Judgement – we cover the essentials so everyone can do their part when it comes to WFM.
Note: If you want to deep-dive into WFM we recommend the WFM Essentials course.
Module 4: Contact Centre University
If there were a Contact Centre University, these topics would be included in the curriculum – the Immutable Laws, the role & use of Erlang C, Shrinkage, using the Response Time Formula and of course the right way to budget Contact Centre Labour.
You’ll gain a solid understanding of how to articulate the Contact Centre complexities to both senior management and your own Team Members.
Optimised for online training
The course is delivered via Zoom teleconferencing across 4 x 4-hour sessions with the dates and times for the Contact Centre Management Fundamentals training course fixed so you can plan ahead (see available course dates at the bottom of the page).
