Once the decision has been made to introduce a Business Service Management System, the uncertainties begin – how will the project impact existing processes, employees and technologies?
Typically, the focus of consultation on the introduction of BSM_Solutions is on the relevant technical factors.
We have identified the key success factors in such BSM initiatives based on our experience in numerous BSM projects. The strategy and launch phase are the key factors for a successful BSM project. It is often difficult to adjust inadequate principles and objectives in the implementation phase and such changes ultimately tend to lead to higher costs and lower efficiency.
With the BSM Readiness Consulting VIPCON method, the first planning level of the BSM initiative is drawn up. The goal is to transform the uncertainty and complexity of the project into a structured basis, with essential knowledge and safe assumptions. On this basis, the solution is then planned and developed in the next step.
BSM Readiness Consulting has a modular design and allows for the gradual definition of the relevant parameters.
We have developed four basic modules that form the basis of successful BSM projects:
- Clarity about objectives and common starting point
- Determine current situation
- GAP analysis and impact on the company
- Action planning and preparation of the project setup
In addition, we offer Deep Dive modules, optionally integrated. Placing initiative focus on priorities of the BSM, such as
- Change management
- Incident management
