This Agile Service Management Overview training course provides a high-level overview of Agile Service Management® – the application and integration of Agile thinking into service management processes and process design projects. Agile Service Management practices are critical in organizations that want to deliver better products faster and more reliably; particularly those organizations that are adopting DevOps.
Whether your organization’s improvement efforts are focused on deploying new processes, or streamlining existing processes, Agile Service Management’s iterative and incremental approach makes it possible to deliver value more quickly.
Agile methodology was born out of the need to address common issues plaguing those in the software development space. The key Agile concepts agreed upon by those pioneering software developer / leaders are:
The first principle of the Agile Manifesto states that “Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery,” i.e. everything you do is for the customer. This is arguably not a benchmark frequently measured in IT service management (ITSM), but it’s one that should be measured all the time. After all, if what you are doing isn’t for customer value, why are you doing it?
The second principle is “Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project,” . How often do IT Service Management employees work with the business? Without this collaboration and interaction, how do you know what you’re delivering is good for the customer?This interactive relationship also highlights the need for the business to get involved and work with IT.
Agile Service Management is the application of agile principles to ITSM, ensuring that ITSM processes are refined and improved in an agile and incremental manner. Agile Service Management ensures ITSM processes have just enough controls in place to deliver effective technology services that facilitate customer outcomes.
