  • 15. Why is ITIL so complicated Detailed books and complicated process Expensive Consulting Expensive Tools
  • 16.
    • 7 Approaches
    • to make sure ITIL works for SMBs
  • 17. #1 If IT Ain’t Broke Don’t Fix It
    • Choose only the parts that help you
    • Choose a minimal ITIL process
      • Implement ITIL from a can-I-live-without-that- perspective
      • Consultants can only advice, evolve process that helps people
    • Software Solution
      • Complex does not mean sophisticated
      • Choose a readily available solution
    • It’s a Team Game
      • Hand out responsibilities, let the team win
  • 18. # 2 By The Spirit Not By The Book I have to implement at least 2 or 3 ITIL process
    • Don’t rip and replace with new process
    • Deploy Gently, show results and improve
    • Start where it works
    After-Certification-do-something Syndrome
  • 19. #3 Complicated Does Not Mean Sophisticated
    • Team hate to follow complex process maps
    • Stop taking your process maps to consultants asking if you got the process right
    • Don’t get lost in complicated ITIL terminology and how ITIL has helped big companies
    ITIL, federated CMDB, ITIL V3, BSM, IPAM, ITAM, Blah blah blah He knows everything, he can help me implement ITIL
  • 20. # 4 Fail Fast & Change Course
    • Take an account of ground reality.
      • If Something is in place and working, take small steps to improve it eg: start with defining the right categorization, self service, and priorities
    • Don’t Thrust a process in ITIL’s name
      • Choose what works and helps a team. Don’t thrust a process that requires a lot of changes.
    • Select the right tools
    • You need a simple software solution that will help you implement ITIL at your pace.
    • Don’t get lost in legendary solutions or impressive list of buzzwords
  • 21. Knowing is not Doing
    • Knowing ITIL is one thing
    • Implementing it is quite another [Beast]
    I read a lot about swimming I know to swim
  • 22. # 5 Pick The Right People
      • Understand your team and give them the right challenges
      • Knights : Process owners
        • Conquer new beachheads
        • Work Independently
      • Warriors
        • Techs on the front
        • Need constant motivation
        • Look up to the knights – Give them a hero to worship
      • Farmers
        • People working to build your Kbase, Process docs, Change Builders and Release Management
        • Provide the eco-systems for knights and warriors
  • 23. # 6 Team’s Project, not yours
      • They need to feel them process is there to help
      • Identify champions, reward converts
      • Create and assign milestone, celebrate victories and show how it helps the team
      • Change Process, Not the Team
      • Change Process to what works for people and help them good IT service and not vice versa
      • Process can evolve, don’t frustrate but sticking to a flowchart
      • Techs need to feel that they can cut across any process to help users
  • 24. # 7 The Main Thing
    • Avoid the obsession: Tendency for people to get lost in process or technology or tools
    • Always remember ,
    • The Main Thing Must Be The Main Thing
