IT service management (ITSM) is the process of designing, delivering, managing, and improving the IT services an organisation provides to its end users. ITSM is focused on aligning IT processes and services with business objectives to help an organisation grow.
Irrespective of the size of business, every organisation is involved in IT service management in some way. ITSM ensures that incidents, service requests, problems, changes, and IT assets in addition to other aspects of IT services are managed in a streamlined way.

Submit an electronic copy of your team (one submission per team by team leader):
- poster (in pdf format)
- Your completed video must be uploaded to YouTube as an unlisted file so that it is only accessible to anyone who is given a link to the file. This link must be included in the poster. This is so your video is accessible to the marker; if the video is not accessible, then it will not be marked.
- Your poster must be submitted to Moodle in the submission point provided by the due date and time.
- Please be aware that uploading videos to YouTube may take longer than you expect, and it is your responsibility to allow enough time for the video presentation to upload, for the link to the unlisted presentation to be included within your poster, and for you to then upload the poster to Moodle by the deadline. Make sure you allow yourself sufficient time for this to occur.
- Please do NOT upload your videos directly to Moodle. Any videos provided directly in Moodle will not be marked.
This assignment will be marked by the course coordinator, lecturer and/or tutors. Feedback and marks will be provided individually in Moodle. Marks will also be available in FDL Marks.
