IT Service Management made simple (and more enjoyable)

There’s no shortage of IT Service Management (ITSM) books on the market.

Dozens of guides, all promising to be the most authoritative, revision aids that all claim to deliver only the essential exam knowledge and those ‘handy’ manuals that turn out to be endless tomes destined to spend eternity on a book shelf, never to be read for fear of a back injury.
