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.

How to make your ITIL/ISO 20000 Problem Management more effective with a Problem Record

What I have witnessed many times is that SLAs (Service Level Agreements) define incident handling, including incident resolution time. That is OK until you face two opposing views – customers and service delivery, i.e., maintenance people (usually represented by the Service Level Manager). What happens is that once the incident ...Read more

Most of the clients I work with are focused on their customers and the services they deliver to them.

But, what I often ...Read more

Which questions will the ISO 20000 certification auditor ask?

How to perform ISO 20000 training and awareness

Although training belongs among the logical activities in every contemporary organization, ISO standards don’t leave that topic to the organization’s (free) judgement. ISO 20000 is not an exception – there is a direct requirement related to personnel (involved in the SMS – Service Management System) competence. Further on, skilled personnel ...Read more
