Today's focus on doing more with less drives support organizations' need to provide IT transformation in a way that facilitates service management in a better, faster, and cheaper way. The good news is, everything we need is already in place. The frameworks, practices, and models that make up Integrated Service Management (ITIL, Lean, Agile, DevOps, and Organizational Change Management) build on and are complimentary to each other, providing a collaborative approach to service and support, both now and in the future. In this session, attendees will learn how applying an Integrated Service Management approach, built on empowerment and collaboration, results in more accurate, faster delivery, reduced service costs, enhanced customer experience (CX) and perceived value, and higher employee engagement and user satisfaction.
