IT Service Management (ITSM) bridges the world of business with the world of technology. In ITSM for Beginners, ClydeBank Media traces the modern evolutions in information technology that precipitated the need and inspiration for ITSM.
The listener is treated to a comparative analysis of several ITSM philosophies and systematic components. From the core facets of ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) to more specialized ITSM frameworks such as ISO/IEC 20000 and eTOM, ITSM for Beginners offers listeners a comprehensive look at the various theories and metrics that define ITSM.
In this book, Clydebank Media brings big ideas down to earth for the everyday listener. ITSM for Beginners is the perfect orientation guide for the IT professional's first forays into the culture and language of ITSM.

IT Service Management is a general term that describes a strategic approach for designing, delivering, managing and improving the way information technology (IT) is used within an organization.

This audiobook provides the listener with a basic overview of ITSM, covering all of the necessary concepts and components of an effective ITSM system.

Excellent Overview of the Vocabulary

I am a retired IT professional and got this book to help give me an overview of the discipline such as it is. Fairly thorough across the industry. Didn't really spend so much time on the ITSM as on ITIL and even other standards. Nice overview of all the 'alphabet soup' of the discipline. Narrator was professional in tone and very appropriately articulated the text.

I was given a free copy of this audio book for the purposes of providing an honest review.
