Cross Reference: Activity
Procedure (ITILv2): A set of specific steps that describe how an activity should be carried out, and by whom. For example, the procedure dealing with carrying out a post-implementation review of a Change would be likely to describe the scope of the procedure (to what Changes does this procedure apply), its purpose and how the success of the Change will be measured, the individual procedural steps and the responsibilities for carrying out or being involved in each of those steps. Procedures may be supported by more detailed Work Instructions.
