Service Management and Project Management are two key frameworks that underpin the work performed by IT departments.
You will be led on a deep dive into the specific ways that these frameworks can be leveraged to complement each other. Depending on the level of local maturity in either framework, you will learn good practices for simple cross over or for deeply embedded process activities and artifacts as well as the key controls to ensure that both frameworks are still achieving their objectives. This session will also briefly mention overlaps with other frameworks including the SDLC, DevOps, CobIT, EA and more.
Audience: This session is for all ITSM Practitioners, Project and Program Managers, Integrators and Process Architects.
Takeaways: You will gain practical insight on how to integrate the service management lifecycle into the project management methodology while supporting the project management methodology with service management processes and procedures.
