Metron's principal consultants are frequently called upon to speak at national and international conferences. This year Metron will be at a number of conferences in the US and Europe. Many of the papers given at conferences in the past can be found in the Resources section of this website. New papers will often form the basis of our free Webinars, which occur weekly on different themes. These Webinars also deal with detailed aspects of Capacity and Performance Management and the implementation of ITIL® procedures and processes.
