Design Coordination Management
From Boosting Performance
What is Design Coordination?
- An ITIL process in Service Design
What's the purpose of having Design Coordination?
- Having a single process to coordinate all the activities within the Service Design stage
- Ensuring that Service Design contributes to customer outcomes
- Ensuring production of Service Design Packages and the handover of these to Service Transition
- Deal with conflicts and issues that may arise within Service Design
What does good look like?
- Policies and Design methods are up to date and being used
- Optimal use of resources and capabilities within Service Design
- Coordinated Design activities
- Control over issues and risks within Service Design
- Continual improvement of Service Design
What is a Service Design Package?
- The SDP could be in the form of a single document, or several documents. Usually, it’s a directory/folder of all related documents required for effective design of the service.
- Not all SDPs are the same (like, e.g., not all the project plans are the same) – it depends on the service and on whether we develop a new service, or make a small, significant, or major change on an existing service.
- There could even be situations when no changes in the SDP are required (e.g., smaller changes that were done before, when the SDP already exists and could be used again).
