Hi All :
I am required to prpopose the pricing for the resultant "Serice Design document". This document will facilitiaite the custome to align its exiting business processes to v3.
Any leads, pointer in this direction to assist me in defining the commercials will be really appreciated.

Pricing for what ?
Why v3, why not v2
V3 consists of 5 books (not counting the 6th) with several non-ITIL v2 processes
Why should the customer align its business processes to ITIL let alone v3
What is the cost to the customer ?
What is this service design document ?
ITIL is not a standard. It is Best practice. If the customer thinks what they are doing is best practice, then it is. There is no guage to measure them against it and no requirement to have it do
You are asking us basically to give you the measurement on a building that does not exist
and besides noen of can be we do know the pricing model you are using _________________ John Hardesty
