The governance framework ? The service transaction engine ? Supporting lifecycles that include: request, requirement, quality, asset, revision, change, release, event, and support For the provider organization the Guide uses outside-in thinking to explain how service encounters, moments of truth, and the customer and service request pathways combine to manage the customer experience and interaction with services, and positions service management as a transformation method for any organization wishing to operate as a customer centric service organization. The Guide also provides a common lexicon of terms, concepts, methods and best practices, and a role continuum spanning the customer-infrastructure perspectives that includes descriptions of 7 knowledge domains (key roles), and 40 knowledge areas (knowledge, skills and abilities or competencies).
