Service Level Management Framework

Define a framework that provides a formalised service level management process between the customer and service provider. The framework should maintain continuous alignment with business requirements and priorities and facilitate common understanding between the customer and provider(s). The framework should include processes for creating service requirements, service definitions, SLAs, OLAs and funding sources. These attributes should be organised in a service catalogue. The framework should define the organisational structure for service level management, covering the roles, tasks and responsibilities of internal and external service providers and customers.

Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Define and document an SLA framework to manage the IT service life cycle. The process should involve senior management representing both the business and IT functions. The framework should identify IT objectives and specify measures of IT performance in meeting business objectives. The respective roles of the business and internal and external service providers should be clearly articulated. Complement the framework with formally defined and approved qualitative and quantitative measures that are easily understood and achievable.
  2. Create a service catalogue that incorporates service requirements, service definitions, SLAs, OLAs and funding sources.
  3. Put in place a process to continually realign SLA objectives and performance measures with business objectives and IT strategy, leveraging subject experts and comparing to accepted industry practice and benchmarks.
  4. Define and implement procedures for monitoring and reporting service level performance measures. Establish escalation and resolution methods for service level issues.
  5. Establish and implement an appropriate change management process for the framework, service catalogue, SLA objectives and performance measures.
  6. Define a service improvement programme.
