Job Description for Incident Manager

Incident managers are responsible for identifying emerging incidents and ensuring their prompt resolution. Their primary responsibility is to address and solve service failures as quickly and effectively as possible. These managers work with the team directly associated with the malfunctioning process (as well as other relevant personnel) to identify the inciting incident and develop potential solutions. Once the issue has been resolved, the incident manager works with the team to establish procedures to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future. In addition to responding to these situations, incident managers work proactively to test and identify possible issues through walk-throughs, simulations, and other testing methods; they are then responsible for suggesting preventative process changes. Incident managers must report issues, progress, and proposals for process changes to their supervisors and other managers.
