About the author:
The IT Skeptic is the pseudonym of Rob England, an IT consultant and commentator. Although he works around the ITIL industry, he is self-employed and his future is not dependant on ITIL - he has nothing to sell you but the ideas in this book.
Rob is the newsletter editor for itSMFnz, the professional body for IT Service Management (ITIL) practitioners.
Rob was awarded the inaugural New Zealand IT Service Management Champion award in 2011 by itSMFnz, and is acknowledged as a contributor to the ITIL 2011 core book Service Strategy.
A Skeptical Guide For Decision-Makers
Essential reading for all decision makers (IT-literate or not) who are presented with an ITIL® proposal or asked to oversee or own an ITIL project.
It explains, in lay-manager's terms, what ITIL is. It reveals what ITIL is good for, what it is bad at, what to expect. It describes how to ensure an ITIL project succeeds, what to require from the project, and how to measure the results.
"Score: 10 out of 10... This is a wonderfully irreverent, but totally authoritative, book... It is a slim manual that seeks to debunk the language and meaning of ITIL and relate it to the practical implementation of IT service management... It's a gem of a book that offers a good perspective on what the ITIL v3 manuals take 5 volumes to cover." (British Computer Society)
