It is also applicable to those who work alongside Service Managers and require an insight into IT Service Management requirements, the relevant mind-set and terminology.

About the Courses

The day will cover, at a high level, the principles behind the ITIL® framework, and the benefits that could be achieved within an IT team if some/all the processes were to be implemented.

All of our tutors are experienced and accredited ITIL® Experts with relevant ITSM (IT Service Management) industry experience. They will explain in detail the benefits, inputs, outputs and challenges of each of the lifecycle stages:

You’ll learn about the processes that will need to be in place to support the services once they have been implemented. You’ll also learn about what is needed to monitor and support the services and fix any issues that may be identified.

ITIL® Continual Service Improvement

You’ll learn that the aim of Continual Service Improvement is to regularly review the services in order to identify if any improvements are required.
