itSMF USA AWARDS AND RECOGNITION
The objective of the itSMF USA Awards & Recognition Program is to shine the spotlight – literally and figuratively – on the best of the best in the ITSM industry and in the service of the membership of the itSMF USA. In doing so we seek to achieve a fully engaged and contributing membership through recognition, rewards, encouragement and reinforcement of the standards, mission, goals, values and principles of the itSMF USA.
The program is administered by a volunteer committee adhering to the stated criteria with the highest level of objectivity and rigor.
