Second Annual ITIL Benchmark Study By Evergreen Systems, Inc.

A leading consulting firm, Evergreen Systems, Inc. announced the results of the second annual study of ITIL. The survey was completed by IT managers, directors and executives regarding the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) at the 10 International IT Service Management Conference hosted by Pink Elephant.

The company gives IT professionals these five tips to avoid common pitfalls:

1) Take time to include a view of all ITIL disciplines when defining a strategy
2) Provide mandatory foundation training for all key constituents
3) Create and promote an effective strategy
4) Focus energy on articulating an enterprise change management system
5) Focus on incident/problem management and enterprise change management effectiveness

The survey also came back with other interesting findings as explained by Don Casson, president and CEO of Evergreen: "One of the key findings from the survey is that increased corporate awareness and CIO support is vital in order to encourage commitment to long term ITIL initiatives and leave organizations less likely to fail in their change management efforts."
