Over the years, I have covered only Agile and scrum in this blog.
This article will have few more recipes (ITIL, Prince 2). I am happy to find some links and material , which helped me to “connect dots” between all 🙂
ITIL : (Information Technology Infrastructure Library)
ITIL is a set of practices for IT service management (ITSM) that focuses on aligning IT services with the needs of business.
ITIL describes processes, procedures, tasks and check-lists that are not organization-specific, used by an organization for establishing integration with the organization’s strategy, delivering value and maintaining a minimum level of competency.
It allows the organization to establish a baseline from which it can plan, implement and measure. It is used to demonstrate compliance and to measure improvement.
A service is something that provides value to customers. Services that customers can directly utilize or consume are known as business services.
ITIL is organized around a service lifecycle which includes following
- service strategy
- service design
- service transition
- service operation
- continual service improvement.
- The following block is “Prince 2 framework”
- ITIL “circle’s” “Continual Process Improvement” produce a “Business case”.
- Here “Business Case” need to be approved in the along with other required “stage” activities as prince -2
- This approved “Business Case” will be input to start in the “pre- project” phase of the “Prince 2”
- “Service Design ” ITIL process will help in “Prince 2 ” “project initiation”
- Service Design will help in creating the best/required design to have architecture of the system. System design will also instrumental in “team” and development activities.
- “Prince 2 ” suggests many phase ( 2 or more ) to develope the “final product”
- “Prince 2” suggest have working product, in every release . So the “SCRUM” will be used for agile development
- “Service Transition” various blocks will be used in “controlling stage” of the Prince 2.
- “Service Operation” will bes used in “final delivery stage” of “control stage”
