An Overview of the ITIL Maturity Assessment

AXELOS made waves in the IT service management (ITSM) community in late 2021 with the release of its highly anticipated ITIL maturity assessment tool. A new ITIL product is always big news, with the best practice framework for IT Service Management (ITSM) used by millions of people across the globe for everything from service management basics to the management of complex service ecosystems. A prevalent demand among ITSM consultancy organisations was the need for dedicated tools to conduct maturity assessments on existing ITIL practices. Therefore, an assignment that is built for, and aligned to, the ITIL framework is a very welcome addition. This blog will look at the maturity model, how it works and the value that it brings to client organisations.

My experience of job hunting as a Service Leaver

by Michael Bowness, Project Controls Consultant

Just as joining the Royal Navy was a big step, returning to civilian life was an even bigger challenge. Unlike the spotty teenager that walked through Lympstone Commando Centre in 1996, I was leaving the Royal Navy with responsibilities to my family, furthermore, I had a mortgage and bills to pay. It seemed that all these worries and concerns were wrapped up in one objective – finding a job when I left.

As with so many service leavers, I fell into the classic trap of under-selling and/or underestimating the skills and attributes gained in over two decades in the armed forces. However, as service leavers, we need to recognise that we’ve been required to provide exceptionally high levels of leadership and management, plus the ability to quickly integrate with new teams and hit the ground running is second nature to us. Moreover, many of us have been trained and conditioned to apply dynamic problem solving and effective judgement; even when operating in high tempo environments. We have so much to offer any organisation.

Fast track consultant: My view

by Luke Searchwell, first year FTC

The i3Works fast-track consultancy (FTC) programme has provided the perfect opportunity to put my existing skills and experience into practical use while placing me in a position to learn new ones. Rotating through different business functions has given me the opportunity to widen my base of knowledge and experience while seeing what work best suits my strengths while actively finding areas of development and making new, valuable connections along the way.

After completing an MSc in Project Management, I was excited to join i3Works and begin to put what I learned into action. Five months in, and this excitement hasn’t faded. After obtaining a theoretical understanding of project management, I was keen to see the way different theories and frameworks that I had learned at university are applied in a live business environment. I thought the best route for my development was to supplement on-the-job experience with a structured approach to learning, so, I chose to apply to the graduate scheme.

As The Rifles birthday approaches

by Martyn Hubbleday, principal consultant, 11-year veteran, 1st Battalion the Rifles

As tomorrow (Tuesday 1 February 2022) is the 15th birthday of The Rifles regiment, I found myself reminiscing about the time I had there. It also made me think about how far I have come since I left the army and the journey I have been on. 

I joined the army in 2003 at 16 years of age. From a very young age, it was always what I’d wanted to do. I was fortunate enough to deploy all over the world, meet some incredible soldiers, leaders, teachers, and friends for life.

Fast Track Consultancy: A Day in the Life

by Freddie Stephenson

What does a fast track consultant (FTC) do exactly? Well, that depends. Depends on what? Predominately, it depends on what projects and clients you are working with, and problems you are looking to solve.

For the past few months, I have been working with two of i3’s clients in our Business Change and Transformation service line. For one client in central government, I am the day-to-day manager for a work package. For the other client, my primary role as a RAID manager for a P3M capability improvement programme within the rail sector.

The sum of our parts

by Nora Harris, head of Assurance

One of the aspects of working at i3Works that I’m most proud of is that we work as a consultancy, but operate as a family – and this includes our relationships with clients and partners.

Since 2019, I’ve been consulting in Defence Digital, part of the Ministry of Defence, working with a fantastic group of people with a distinct “one team” ethos. i3Works has more than 20 consultants and partners working across eight business areas supporting the development of the Portfolio Integration Office to deliver maturity gains in project controls.

Digital Transformation: The Discomfort is The Point

by James Marwood, head of Business Change and Transformation

Digital transformation is the topic of the moment. Across the public and private sectors, organisations are looking to build and exploit new capabilities and increase the value of existing ones by increasing the take-up and use of digital, data, and technology. Usually, these are focused on improved interactions (with users, citizens, customers, employees, and suppliers), on better understanding and responsiveness to market or environmental shifts, and on driving improved collaboration in internal operations. These are all desirable goals, and especially for the providers of our essential public services who are dealing with significant challenges from volatile demand, a need to be ever more cost-effective and able to deal with effects of major events such as COVID, Brexit and an ageing population.
