The transition from individual contributor to manager is arguably the hardest career change to make. It can be overwhelming, and there is plenty of bad advice around that will only make things worse. The process is often unpredictable, chaotic and unstructured. But what if new managers had a framework to plan their personal and professional progress? Thanks to the innovative approach in this book, they now do. In Managing in a Service-focused World, Roger K. Williams adapts tried and trusted principles of IT service management (ITSM) into a framework for personal and professional development. He treats management as a service, presenting the idea that the effectiveness of a manager is best judged by the views of the key stakeholders: the manager themselves, their team, their leaders and their customers. The book lets you quickly appreciate and apply the ideas in a way that engages staff at all levels and gives tangible benefits to all stakeholders. It takes its examples from IT service management, but the clear and direct style means that managers in any industry can understand and implement the ideas. With this book, you can: create a personal development plan that will help you improve your management skills; understand how to work with your team to get keep them engaged and working effectively; increase your own professional standing; work better with customers and external stakeholders, resulting in better, mutually beneficial relationships. Read this book and transform your management career with the principles of ITSM.
