Why this is important

To improve your IT and enterprise service management with a powerful range of capabilities, you need to:

  • Build adoption momentum and capture early ROI
  • Sustain and grow value by implementing the right reference architecture and prerequisites

Steps covered

2. Map the right process foundations

4. Capture high-visibility, low-cost wins
5. Build foundational management capabilities

Key takeaways

  • Clearly define and prioritize your short- and long-term ROI goals, and match them to your implementation priorities.
  • Make sure you have a foundational configuration management database (CMDB), as well as processes for CMDB development and maintenance.
  • Identify and capture quick win opportunities to drive early adoption momentum.
  • Don’t wait to build effective governance, training, and organizational change management.
  • Revisit the service strategy frequently, and avoid repeating patterns that limit future opportunity.
