Workshop Description

IT Service Management (ITSM) has become a crucial component of most organizations today. It helps to streamline the activities of Information Technology into customer-facing services, which in turn improves the overall customer experience.

ITSM can be a complex and challenging undertaking, but it can also be a very rewarding one. By implementing ITSM, organizations can improve the quality, efficiency, and effectiveness of their IT services.

This can lead to a number of benefits, such as improved customer satisfaction, increased productivity, and reduced costs.

Today, there are different IT Service Management best practices frameworks like ITIL, FitSM and Unified Service Management (USM) which are being adopted by organizations globally.

ITIL and FitSM, are both frameworks for IT service management while USM is a Service management method for the entire organization. They all share the same goal though, which is to improve the quality, efficiency, and effectiveness of IT services. However, they differ in their approach to achieving this goal.

  • ITIL® is the oldest and most widely used framework for IT service management. It is a comprehensive framework that covers all aspects of IT service management. ITIL is based on a set of best practices that have been developed over many years.
  • FitSM® is a newer framework for IT service management. It is designed to be more agile and flexible than ITIL. FitSM is based on a set of principles that can be adapted to the specific needs of each organization.
  • USM is the newest framework for service management. It is designed to be even more agile and flexible than FitSM. USM is based on a set of building blocks that can be combined to create a tailored solution for each organization.

This course aims to introduce the different frameworks, what they offer and how organizations need to approach their implementation by adopting and adapting them according to their needs.


Individuals at the start of their journey in Service Management; ITSM Managers and aspiring ITSM Managers; Individuals working in other parts of “IT” (digital, product, development) with strong interface with service delivery.
