When Rick Berzle and Bill Keyworth asked me to join them to build a site on the topic of Business Service Management, I immediately said yes.
The result is BSMReview.com, a site which seeks to analyze the best and next practices in business service management from a third-party point of view.

And that’s just for the launch. Bill is recruiting more experts even as I write this. I’d like to get David Williams from Gartner and Jean-Pierre Garbani from Forrester involved as well, but they’re behind the iron walls of the analyst-dom.
Bill’s thinking is that business service management covers a series of related topics. See his introduction – The Why & What of Business Service Management for more.
