VeriSM™ is a service management approach that helps service providers to create a flexible operating model to meet desired business outcomes.

It describes how an organisation can define its service management principles and then use organisational capabilities, emerging technologies and a combination of management practices to deliver value. The Foundation Certificate is a direct introduction to VeriSM™ and service management for the digital age.
