After the Post-it notes: how to ensure the service you designed is the one that gets delivered

Session type:
Case Study

Session duration:
60 minutes

Presented by:

Simon King

York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership

About this Case Study

European funded (or ESIF) services are a mess, with many of their constraints, outputs and contractual requirements at odds with service design principles. Without any contractual powers over service providers, this is a look at how the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Enterprise Partnership adapted principles from the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) to improve the design and delivery of business support services, and made sure the services they designed were the ones that got delivered.
