  author={Anayanci L{\'o}pez-Poveda and Lazar Rusu and Paul Johannesson},
IT organizations in early growth stages, i.e. using ad-hoc approaches for management, usually face more challenges than the regular IT organizations. The introduction of more strategic approaches suitable to their organizational limitations may contribute to deal with this situation. Previously, a method for analysing IT service strategy was presented and tested; this aimed to enable a staged improvement of these IT organisation using IT service management and maturity models. In order to…
