"A practical guide to planning and implementing service management based on the CSI principles. The focus on maturity level definitions based on various dimensions such as process, organizational maturity, etc provides a holistic view on service mangement. The analysis of 'where we are now' is given in great detail and benchmarking methods and procedures are described usefully. The appendices provide very useful content on 'enablers and blockers' as well as pragmatic approaches to implementation. A 'must read' for practitioners, service quality and CSI managers."

For IT senior management it is a useful reminder of the key role they play in ensuring a successful outcome for any service improvement initiative; by providing sound governance and ongoing, high-visibility support."

"This book provides guidance on the key aspects that need to be considered when embarking on either a new service management implementation or a planned improvement initiative. It incorporates good advice on not only the creation of relevant supporting processes but also the cultural considerations that are needed for success. Although the book relates the best practice to service management, much of the content is equally applicable in the implementation of a variety of IT and business processes. It provides a one stop shop bringing together information from multiple sources making it a 'must have' for any senior manager. The book will be useful especially to service management consultants, project and programme managers. Line managers and process owners would benefit from reading the book as it illustrates the need for a co-ordinated approach to implementing best practice service management and ensuring that the momentum for improvement is maintained."
