Create a Service Management Roadmap

Implement service management in an order that makes sense.

Onsite Workshop

Lack of a service management roadmap leads to:

  • Inconsistent adoption of holistic practices that can lead to a chaotic service delivery model that results in poor customer satisfaction.
  • Little structure, formalization, or standardization in the way IT services are designed and managed, leading to diminishing service quality and low business satisfaction.
  • An image problem. IT organizations want to be seen as strategic partners, but they fail to address the cultural and organizational constraints.
  • Poor alignment with the business goals, leading to services often failing to provide the expected value.

Ensure you are designing your roadmap using best practices by:

  • Following Info-Tech’s methodology to create a service management roadmap that will help guide the optimization of your IT services and improve IT’s value to the business.
  • Following the blueprint to help you right-size your roadmap to best suit your specific needs and goals and will provide structure, ownership, and direction for service management.
  • Accurately identifying the current state of service management at your organization. Customize the roadmap and create a step-by-step plan to achieve your target service management state.
