Overview

The ITIL Lifecycle in Service Design Course is one of the five courses that fit into the lifecycle stream for ITIL certification. This certification is intended to enable the holders of the ITIL Foundation certificate in IT Service Management to acquire the skills needed to have a comprehensive understanding of the processes and roles described in the Service Design element of the Service Management lifecycle.

Please be aware, this course provides 21 Hours of Contact Education/Professional Development Units towards PMI PMP certification/re-certification.

The ITIL Framework is a source of good practice in service management. ITIL is used by organisations world-wide to establish and improve capabilities in service management. Service Management is a set of specialised organisational capabilities for providing value to customers in the form of services. The capabilities take the form of functions and processes for managing services over a lifecycle, with specialisations in strategy, design, transition, operation, and continual improvement. The capabilities represent a service organisation's capacity, competency, and confidence for action. The act of transforming resources into valuable services is at the core of service management. Without these capabilities, a service organisation is merely a bundle of resources that by itself has relatively low intrinsic value for customers.

Audience

  • The course is accredited by, and follows the syllabus specified by the APM Group (www.apmgroup.co.uk). The main focus of the course is covered by the Service Design volume of the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL).
