This post is to do with putting together the Service Management Design & Strategy.
Planning can be time consuming, but you’re better off spending a bit of time at the beginning than a lot of time when you’re active and people are experiencing sub-par service because you weren’t prepared!
Here below is a list of questions to answer, which, if answered completely, will ensure that your Service Management Design and Strategy follows best practice.
Answering these questions should present you with a reasonable Service Management Map.
Done properly, this checklist and exercise should help you map very clearly, the roles and responsibilities, and the tasks per product or service mapped against each ITIL process.
Insight 1: Create a high level future state model, particularly if it is a significant departure from the current state.
Start with the end-user or customer, work your way down to the first point of contact, through to the internal and external second and third level support teams. This should cover incident management, and install, moves, adds, changes & deletes.
Work your way up again from those teams back to the end user customer for change management, release management, alerts & alarms.
Best to present this on a single page as an infographic.
Insight 2: Create the detailed matrix using ITIL processes as a base on one dimension, and the services to be delivered on the other dimension.
Break the services into technical components, and for each technical component, for each ITIL process, assign a RACI.
Particularly useful for uncovering gaps, particularly useful in multi-sourced service models.
With this done, you are now set to move to the next stage...
