Look at your options

This stage is about researching which implementation options you have. There are essentially three main routes to ITIL and ISO 20000 for your organization:

  • You’re on your own – create the documents you need from scratch and work out all the steps you need to take. This is the most time-consuming and challenging route. Many companies attempt this approach but very few successfully achieve implementation. Often companies find a year or two have passed by and a lot of time and money has been wasted.
  • Hire a consultant – they will hold your hand through the process (but of course they come with a big price tag). If you think this option is for you, be sure to use our ISO 20000 and ITIL consultant checklist to test out your chosen consultant (their expertise can vary widely).
  • Supported Do-it-yourself – this approach is the way the 20000Academy works. We help you avoid the costs of a consultant by providing you with all the documentation and professional support you need to successfully gain ITIL and the ISO 20000 standard.
