Project Mgmt in ITIL V3 - The IT Skeptic
A podcast of the original article Why is Project Management almost invisible in ITIL V3?
PM is the engine that moves much stuff (hopefully just about everything) from Development to Production, which is pretty important now that ITIL has muscled into Application Management. PM should interlock with Change Management and Testing. PM should provide most of the Early Life Support. Release and Deployment shouldn't move without PM: if it is big enough to be a release it should be a project. And so on.
So why is it no-one tells you how ITIL aligns with the Project Management bodies of knowledge PMBOK or PRINCE2.
