Being in an IT environment we inevitably reduce all terms to either an acronym or abbreviation. My search for any standards has been fruitless so in an effort to standardize I'm interested in hearing what everyone else is using for process abbreviations (if any).
e.g. Change Management = CHM

I used ....
InMan = Incident Mgmt
ProbMan = Problem Mgmt
ChangeMan = Change Mgmt
ConfMan = Config Mgmt
SLMan = Service Level Mgmt
CapMan = Capacity Mgmt
FinMan = Financial Mgmt
AvMan = Availability Mgmt
ContMan = Continuity Mgmt
Hope this helps

In my part of the ITIL universe we tend to abbreviate even further:
AvM: Availability Management
CpM: Capacity Management
ChM: Change Management
CfM: Configuration Management
IcM: Incident Management
PbM: Problem Management
ReM: Release Management
SDM: Service Desk Management
SeM: Security Management
SCM: Service Continuity Management
SLM: Service Level Management
Where it sometimes gets dicey (I hate acronyms ) is
CMDB: Configuration Database
CDB: Capacity Database
