Testimonial: I have found that the new HDAA Knowledge Base reduces the time it takes me to research industry stats & reliable information for the ITSM sector. It’s easy to use search functionality encompassing KCS principles, helps to filter & tailor my searches more accurately & there are numerous new services now available through the website. Every time I return to the site there is new information published. Very impressive.

The VeriSM™ service management approach was introduced in the fall of 2017. Many organizations in the European and Asia Pacific regions have embraced the approach in successfully beginning their digital transformation journeys. But despite these early success stories, there are still a number of myths that seemingly prevail regarding VeriSM.
VeriSM doesn’t replace ITIL—or any other methodology, framework, or standard. Rather, VeriSM leverages and builds upon the frameworks and methodologies that you have or need to develop and support for each of your organization’s products or services.
In today’s fast-paced digital economy, there isn’t just one framework or approach that will work for all products and services in all situations. VeriSM, with its unique Management Mesh construct, helps organizations identify and leverage how various methodologies or frameworks can be used for a specific product or service, while another product or service may leverage a different set of frameworks and methodologies. VeriSM acknowledges that each organization has unique business drivers, unique business environments, and unique technology needs. VeriSM helps organizations adapt and adopt the various frameworks and methodologies to a business’ specific and unique needs…not force the business to alter its requirements just to “fit” within a specific framework.
While “digital transformation” was the backdrop for the development of VeriSM, I’ve always thought VeriSM applies to more than just these organizations. I view VeriSM as an excellent overall approach to service management. For example, many organizations are struggling with how to strike the right balance between competing demands like:
VeriSM helps organizations identify, evaluate, and navigate these competing demands by helping organizations identify its strengths, areas needing development, and gaps, while at the same time, keeping the needs of the consumer in mind.
In today’s world, the line between business and technology is beyond blurred; business and technology are rapidly becoming integrated. The VeriSM approach recognizes this integration of technology and business, and provides guidance for how the entire organization, not just a single department, should perform as a service provider. IT has never been the only capability within an organization that provides products and services for others. Other organizational capabilities, like HR, facilities, accounting, and more, also provide services and products. And in today’s always on, always connected business world, organizations need an approach that works well across the entire organization, not just for a single department. This is exactly why VeriSM was developed.
VeriSM is a service management approach that helps organizations define their principles and operation model for exploiting all of their organizational capabilities. When one views the entire organization as a service provider, an approach that is tailored to the specific needs of that organization is required. This is where VeriSM comes in.
Unlike other methodologies or frameworks, VeriSM is designed to evolve as the organization evolves. One of the strengths of VeriSM is what I call flexible consistency. VeriSM recognizes that different products and services within an organization may require flexibility in how value is delivered to consumers. But at the same time, the organization needs to take a consistent approach for delivering value. VeriSM provides that consistency through its “Define-Produce-Provide-Respond” model, while at the same time, provides flexibility via the Management Mesh.
A question that I’m occasionally asked is “Does the support center fit within VeriSM?” The answer, of course, is “Yes.” Here’s how:
