ITIL Core Concepts
(and discussion)

     Service: A means of delivering value to customers by facilitating outcomes customers want to
      achieve without the ownership of specific costs and risks.
     Service Management: a set of specialized organizational capabilities for providing value to customers
      in the form of services.
     Service Package: A detailed description of an IT service that is available to be delivered to customers.
      Includes one or more core services and supporting services and a Service Level Package.
     Process Model: a process is a set of coordinated activities combining and implementing resources and
      capabilities in order to produce an outcome, which, directly or indirectly, creates value for an external
      customer or stakeholder.
        ─   A process takes one or more defined inputs and turns them into defined outputs.
        ─   A process may include any of the roles, responsibilities, tools, and management controls required to
            reliably deliver the outputs.
        ─   A process may define policies, standards, guidelines, activities, and work instructions.
        ─   Processes become strategic assets when they create competitive advantage and market
