Frameworks for IT management

Front Cover
Van Haren Publishing, Oct 11, 2006 - Business & Economics - 244 pages
Modern IT managers are confronted with an overwhelming number of management frameworks, methods and methodologies - making it difficult to see the wood for the trees. In addition many IT service providers believe they can't be taken seriously if they don't also have a proprietary framework to offer - which makes it even more difficult to find your way through the framework forest. This itSMF publication covers the most important frameworks in use, in a neutral and objective way, so that readers can better understand the potential value of each instrument. Each framework is described by a well-known expert in that field, in a structured format, to emphasise the specific characteristics. A consistent approach to each chapter allows easy comparison between the instruments: a description of each framework, the origin/history, where the instrument is used, description and core graphics, approach/how to, relevance to IT management, strengths and weaknesses, cross-references/relationships and links and literature.
