YaSM starts from the insight that all established service management frameworks and standards such as ITIL®, ISO 20000, COBIT®, CMMI-SVC®, SIAM® and VeriSM™ follow a few basic principles. Once you are familiar with these principles, you can better sort out the huge amount of advice available and introduce clearly defined processes in your organization that everybody understands.
But how to get the picture of these principles, and how to define concise processes that work for your organization?
This is where the YaSM model comes into play:
YaSM has a streamlined, consistent structure so you can easily understand the ideas behind service management. Also, the YaSM model is not merely read-only information. All diagrams and documents are in fact fully editable templates, so you don't have to start from nothing as you design tailor-made processes for your organization.
YaSM is not another service management framework.
What we offer is rather a "translation" of the guidance in the established frameworks like ITIL®, SIAM® and VeriSM™ into a clear-cut collection of processes.
