- IT organizations continue attempting to implement service management, often based on ITIL, with limited success and without visible value.
- More than half of service management implementations have failed beyond simply implementing the service desk and the incident, change, and request management processes.
- Organizational structure, goals, and cultural factors are not considered during service management implementation and improvement.
- The business lacks engagement and understanding of service management.
- Service management is an organizational approach. Focus on producing successful and valuable services and service outcomes for the customers.
