ISO 20000 FOUNDATION
Imagine that your organization has a tool that supports every step of service lifecycle, from ideation to planning, from delivery to improvement. Such a tool exists in the form of a service management system, based on an internationally recognized standard: ISO/IEC 20000-1.
What is ISO/IEC 20000-1?
Published initially in 2005 and subsequently updated in 2011 and 2018, ISO/IEC 20000-1 is a Type Amanagement system standard that sets out the minimum requirements for an organization to establish, implement, maintain, and continually improve a service management system (SMS).
An SMS consists of policies, processes, resources, objectives, and documented information that are put together and are coordinated to achieve the objectives of the organization. An effective SMS enables organizations to direct and control their service management activities, identify and mitigate risks related to their activities, and identify and realize opportunities that improve service provision.
The requirements of ISO/IEC 20000-1 are generic and applicable to organizations of all sizes, sectors, and complexities. According to ISO Survey 2020, there are more than 7,500 certificates issued to organizations worldwide. Contrary to the common misperception that this standard is only applicable to IT infrastructure, ISO/IEC 20000-1 can be used for various other services, including, finance, cloud, business process outsourcing, etc
