The requirements of ISO 20000

The ISO 20000 standard uses a structure of 9 clauses which, roughly grouped together, cover four key areas:

  1. Service Management – the processes your business must follow to run a successful IT Service Management System and ensure your IT service provision is integrated. Unlike the other sections, not all areas will be applicable to your business

  2. Issue Resolution – how your business plans to report on, restore and prevent issues that prevent the delivery of your services

  3. Change Management – details on how your business handles changes, both in terms of processes and new or changed services

  4. Management Responsibility and Resource Management – the areas where your management team need to focus on, be involved with and be accountable for. This also includes how resources such as people, infrastructure and facilities must be assigned to ensure the best possible performance
