A unique holistic approach to ITIL in the real world
As more companies begin an adopt/adapt initiative based on ITIL guidance, they quickly realise that looking at single processes in isolation is not enough. To fully benefit from the framework, companies have to look at the relationships between processes, understanding upstream and downstream impacts. However, advice on using this approach has not been readily available…until now.
The authors bring together their extensive practical experience to provide a guide written for IT professionals, ITSM practitioners, service owners and process owners, university students, and in fact anyone working to adopt the ITIL framework or needing a deeper understanding of its interfaces.
