Smart Kits

No need to reinvent the wheel! We’ve done the work for you…

Welcome to Smart Kits, Pink Elephant’s approach to sharing expert guidance – helping to translate knowledge into results. Each of our Smart Kits contain valuable resources to start, improve, or optimize your IT and business projects and are designed to provide you with process-specific guidance.

Is your focus on implementing problem management? You can get a Smart Kit that will give you guidance on how to do that.

Is your focus on implementing a service catalog? You can get a Smart Kit that concentrates only on that, too!

Is your focus on implementing something else? We may have that too! There are many to choose from. Look at the list below or visit My Pink for a complete list of all Smart Kits available.

A Smart Kit is a customized online resource – a “consultant in a box” that contains guidance for a specific process or subject area. There are several Smart Kits to choose from and the exact guidance included varies from Smart Kit to Smart Kit depending on the subject, but generally speaking each one includes:

  • Strategic, tactical, and operational plans
  • Implementation roadmaps
  • Templates, process flows, and critical path templates
  • How-to checklists
  • Research papers, articles, books, videos, and podcasts
  • Example PowerPoint presentations and performance reports
  • Questionnaires and self-assessment tools
  • ...and more!
