What is PSMF?
While other roles and career paths are widely understood, the service management profession is not clearly defined or appreciated. Our roles require a number of skills and competencies beyond our technical capability, such as business knowledge, leadership and communication.
PSMF (Professional Service Management Framework) is a competency model which defines a professional identity for the service management industry. Whether you’re an individual practitioner or an enterprise organisation, PSMF is a way to recognise the full value of your contribution.
PSMF Membership is designed to support those using the Framework within their organisations. It gives you all the benefits of an itSMF UK Member. ADDITIONALLY it allows your organisation:
As a registered organisation on PSMF Global, you can build a network of employees, monitoring and managing their areas of competency and identifying hot spots and skills gaps. PSMF organisations can also build PSMF Global into their own HR processes, using it as a way to recognise and reward staff.
What is Verified Partner status?
Verified Partner status is a light-touch assessment of the HR/people management processes used within your organisation to develop your ITSM staff. Verified Partner organisations are centres of excellence, which provide ITSMF UK PSMF-endorsed recognition of individual practitioners’ competence and delivered skills.
Your organisation can have Verified Partner status based on a short assessment exercise. You can then validate and manage credits and digital badges for your people. Credits can also be given via other types of organisation – e.g. ITSMF Partners, ITSMF UK regional and SIG groups and events.
There is a small charge for the Verified Partner status review, which is carried out by experienced ITSMF UK practitioners. We can offer PSMF members a very substantial discount and a place on our prestigious Early Adopter scheme. Please contact the office for details.
What does PSMF membership mean to you?
