Abstract

IT service improvements can add immense value to organisations. To improve IT service management (ITSM) processes, a software-mediated process assessment method is proposed with four phases: process identification, process assessment, process capability measurement and process improvement. The international standard for process assessment was applied to measure process capability. This method was trialled at two Australian organisations and positively evaluated in a US foreign exchange trading business. Our empirical evidence challenges the underlying assumption that higher levels of process capability depend on the achievement of lower level process attributes. We conclude that this method can be applied to transparently self-assess processes.
