9780117081062: The ISM Method: Past, Present and Future of IT Service Management

The book The ISM Method: Past, Present and Future of IT Service Management describes a revolutionary approach on how to successfully implement IT service management (ITSM) in an easier, faster, cheaper, and especially more effective way.

In the book, the lessons of 30 years are used to put an end to the chaos and complexity of ineffective ITSM projects. Based on simple paradigms, a single and compact solution is described for the integrated service management with People, Process and Product. This is not achieved by setting ITIL or ASL aside, but by rearranging the many valuable elements of these frameworks into a simple logical structure, and filling the gaps. Although the paradigms are explained extensively in the book, the solution is very practical and has been proven in recent years in dozens of projects with small and large organizations.

This publication describes the implementation method, with a strong focus on quality assurance and cultural change, a comprehensive definition list, and an example of a compact process model.

Book Description TSO. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, The ISM Method: Past, Present and Future of IT Service Management (Version 3), Wim Hoving, IT Service Management, Jan Van Bon, For over 20 years IT Service Management (ITSM) has been considered globally accepted best practice. The industry experts of this century agree on its value. Why then do some ITSM implementations fail to succeed? Research has concluded that often, the reason for this is a lack of executive commitment. One of two scenarios is common; 1) failed attempts to gain executive support or 2) failure to retain support over time. A corporate environment where the need to change is not demonstrated at the highest levels within the organization erodes the momentum created during the initial implementation and creates diminishing returns. The required cultural change fails to embed itself in the daily ITSM activities. The reality that has been proven over and over again is that adopting ITSM can mean the difference between survival or extinction of an IT department and often the business itself. ITSM saves money. ITSM is what many of the top performing companies in the world use to manage services. Bookseller Inventory # B9780117081062
