Our definition of a service is having the benefits of an asset without having the ownership of that asset. A Test Service, for example, would allow consumers of that service to enter tests and results and create reports without having to configure and maintain a test tool. A service definition would describe the functionality, how to get access, what it will cost, how to get help or request improvements, what reports to expect and what the planned availability is of the tool and support.

Organizational Change Management
Change Management is one of the core disciplines in managing any type of transformation. Process and Technology are fairly straight forward in terms of design and configuration, but this is very different for People. People can’t be configured and need guidance to adopt new ways of working. Change management is a structured approach to this guidance and it reduces risks like resistance, obstruction, inefficiency, and mistakes, and it also creates buy-in and re-enforces the positive outcomes of a transformation. Mindavation can help with building your change management capability, planning the change management stream for your project and providing experienced change managers to augment your organisation.
