Since the early 2000s numerous external scenarios and drivers have added significant pressures upon the IT organisations. Among many, these include: Regulatory compliance: data privacy requirements and corporate scandals have focused a requirement for transparency – with high impact on IT organisations Economic pressures: require IT organisations to more closely align with business imperatives. The outcome has been an explosion of ‘standards’ and ‘frameworks’ each designed to support the IT organisation as it demonstrates to the world that they are the’ rock’ of an organisation: strong, reliable, effective and efficient. Most of these standards and frameworks have great elements but no organisation can adopt them all – and many were created without sufficient considerations for interoperability. The IT Service (in 2 parts) looks at the key and very simple goals of an IT organisation and clearly and succinctly presents to the reader the best ‘rock solid’ elements in the Industry. It then shows how all the key elements can easily ‘crystallise’ together –with great templates and check-lists. In Part 1 (another book) the reader is presented with the simple objectives that the IT department really must address. In Part 2 (this book) the reader gains expert advice on how the components of IT Service are ‘crystallised’ in a real environment. There’s a delightfully simple set of steps: OVERVIEW OF THE SERVICE DESIGN PACKAGE THE SERVICE STRATEGY ASPECTS Of SERVICE DESIGN OUTPUTS OF THE SERVICE DESIGN PHASE OUTPUTS OF THE SERVICE TRANSITION PHASE OUTPUTS OF THE SERVICE OPERATION PHASE Within these the Author gives a very simple set of templates (or tells you where they are to be found), practical guidance and very simple checklists. It’s up the reader how far you develop each stage: a lot depends on the nature of your business of course. The joy of this approach is that the reader knows that all basic components are identified -- and that more extensive resources are referred to if the reader wishes to extend.

IT services are prevalent throughout virtually all businesses. Most enterprises and many government functions are totally dependent upon reliable and responsive IT services to underpin vital business, community and social functions. IT services have become mainstream and managing them to deliver value it the core message of ITIL V3, and the emphasis in ITIL V3 on service catalogue management is a direct result of the growing requirement for business and IT to work together sharing data, information and knowledge about demand for services, service capabilities and patterns of business activity. The Service Catalogue Management process is now a very important management field complete with its own terminology and vital concepts. This study guide outlines the concepts and principles underlying the service catalogue; discusses a project plan approach and reporting considerations; describes the value of a sound business case and the key relationships and touch points in the service catalogue management process.

A comprehensive introduction to designing services according to the needs of the customer or participants, this book addresses a new and emerging field of design and the disciplines that feed and result from it. Despite its intrinsic multidisciplinarity, service design is a new specialization of design in its own right. Responding to the challenges of and providing holisitic, creative and innovative solutions to increasingly complex contemporary societies, service design now represents an integrative and advanced culture of design. All over the world new design studios are defining their practice as service design while long established design and innovation consultancies are increasingly embracing service design as a key capacity within their offering. Divided into two parts to allow for specific reader requirements, Service Design starts by focusing on main service design concepts and critical aspects. Part II offers a methodological overview and practical tools for the service design learner, and highlights fundamental capacities the service design student must master. Combined with a number of interviews and case studies from leading service designers, this is a comprehensive, informative exploration of this exciting new area of design.

The Handbook of Interior Architecture and Design offers a compelling collection of original essays that seek to examine the shifting role of interior architecture and interior design, and their importance and meaning within the contemporary world. Interior architecture and interior design are disciplines that span a complexity of ideas, ranging from human behaviour and anthropology to history and the technology of the future. Approaches to designing the interior are in a constant state of flux, reflecting and adapting to the changing systems of history, culture and politics. It is this process that allows interior design to be used as evidence for identifying patterns of consumption, gender, identity and social issues. The Handbook of Interior Architecture and Design provides a pioneering overview of the ideas and arrangements within the two disciplines that make them such important platforms from which to study the way humans interact with the space around them. Covering a wide range of thought and research, the book enables the reader to investigate fully the changing face of interior architecture and interior design, while offering questions about their future trajectory.
