Create a more robust service management system using the best of ITIL?, ISO/IEC 20000-1, COBIT?, and CMMI?-SVC. Although ITIL's popularity as a framework for IT service management (ITSM) continues to increase, a number of organizations have realized that its approach is sometimes not quite enough on its own. Many are already working towards compliance with ISO/IEC 20000-1 ? the international standard for ITSM ? but, with the likes of COBIT and CMMI-SVC to consider as well, it can be difficult to determine the best route to take. Guidance is now here. New in the second edition Completely updated by service management gurus Suzanne D. Van Hove and Mark Thomas, the second edition of Pragmatic Application of Service Management - The Five Anchor Approach provides comprehensive guidance, instructive illustrations, and helpful tables to create an integrated system based on COBIT, ISO/IEC 20000, ITIL, and CMMI-SVC. This practical book enables service managers to immediately adapt and deploy the guidance, and quickly improve their ITSM function. Pragmatic Application of Service Management now features a short chapter on applying the Five Anchors Approach to integrating service management frameworks in very small enterprises (VSEs), and contains five new ?caselets' (short case studies).
