Description USM Foundation English

USM means Unified Service Management. USM is a standardized management system with which a service organization manages its people, resources, practices and services with just five processes and eight automatable workflows. The method is applicable to any type of service.

What makes USM special?
Practices of service organizations are frequently based on the practices of others (best practices). These practices are then incorporated into popular frameworks such as ITIL and COBIT. The use of frameworks or practices is useful but a more sustainable approach is based on principles. The USM method was developed on the basis of principles. An organization can use USM to set up its management and operating procedures in a simple manner.

Complete package
Unlike a best practice such as ITIL, USM offers a complete package on the basis of which services of an organization can be organized and managed. This includes process descriptions, procedures, workflows, specified organizational structures, tooling, job profiles, implementation manuals and self-assessment facilities.

Where to apply USM?
USM is a method for universal service management, developed for all service and facility organizations such as building management, IT, human resources, etc., but also for all forms of primary services such as telecom providers and municipalities. This way, USM supports a solid and sustainable Enterprise Service Management strategy. Standardization of the management system is the key to success!
