Introduction to ITSM, ITIL, ISO 20K and the lifecycle

Service Management has been adopted by many thousands of companies worldwide, but what is it?
 
Fundamentally, it’s a way to manage the delivery of IT, focused on the customers perception of IT’s contribution to the business.
 
This short introduction to Service Management will explain the key concepts and features and will give attendees sufficient information to understand and build upon the essentials. We’ll begin with what the industry is getting out of Service Management, move on to explain ITIL® and ISO20000 in some detail and then finish with a brief look at other linked topics.
 
The talk will cover…

  • ITIL
  • ISO20000
  • COBIT and Lean

It will explain how ITIL and other best practices have helped organizations worldwide to maximize value from their IT investments. Maggie will look at how to recognise when IT service management is being practised well, and when it is in need of improvement. You will learn how to identify and resolve some common mistakes and benefit from some quick wins.
