Case Studies

Disney
Getting widespread adoption of a new method or way of working in such a large organization is no mean feat. ‘With over 700 domestic IT cast, we simply can’t adopt large-scale change overnight,’ he explains. ‘Where I talk about best practice and ITIL integration, at the start of the process, the staff only know how we do business. They are unaware of both ITIL and our interest in it. The first step is to make them part of Disney’s ITIL® Journey.

Internal Revenue Service (IRS)

Rick Lemieux from itSM Solutions was involved in helping the IRS roll out its ITIL training programme from the beginning. ‘ITIL V3’s focus on continual service improvement and putting the customer first fit well with the IRS’s objectives, so we took some time educating the executive teams on the benefits of ITIL V3. This wasn’t a hard sell because everyone could see the synergy there, but understanding the fit doesn’t mean you can roll it out instantly.
