The 7 Guiding Principles are the key "tenets" of ITIL 4, which, together with the Four Dimensions are like the backbone of ITIL 4. Where the dimensions map out what you should consider (e.g. take a whole system view), the guiding principles tell you more about how people should think and act.
ESM has been a hot topic for a few years now, and adoption of service management principles/practices/tools in "non-IT" service departments like HR, Facilities, Administration, Legal and other business units is still rising fast.
