You’re left struggling to keep up with ever-increasing user demands, not to mention your enterprise’s need to modernize and digitally transform. If you suspect ITIL is slowing you down, read on to uncover the seven ways ITIL has commonly been misapplied—and gain guidance on how you can go faster, while still upholding ITIL principles.
