The YaSM Process Map

For organizations that want to get serious about introducing YaSM and service management best practice, we offer a set of ready-to-use process diagrams and document templates - a process model referred to as the "YaSM® Process Map".

For each service management process, the process model describes in the form of a diagram the activities to be performed, the required inputs and the resulting outputs.

Benefits of using the YaSM Process Map

The graphical and navigable representation of the processes makes it easy to understand the YaSM processes and their interrelationships. The YaSM Process Map is thus a very cost-efficient way of giving everyone in your organization a good understanding of service management best practice.

What is more, introducing best practice in your organization typically means designing and documenting improved processes.

To help you with this task, the diagrams and document templates of the YaSM Process Map can be tailored to your needs. You can simply modify existing content instead of starting with a blank page - which saves an enormous amount of time and effort.

Contents of the YaSM Process Map

The core of the YaSM model is a set of process diagrams in 3 levels of detail:
