ITIL Service Design & Service Transition Fast Track

ITIL® (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) is the most widely accepted approach to IT service management best practice.

This comprehensive bootcamp brings together the official ITIL lifecycle certification for Service Design and Service Transition. The course will provide you with critical knowledge and practical guidance in:
• the management principals and core concepts required to design new or modify existing IT services.
• ensuring that the introduction, deployment, transfer and decommissioning of new or changed services is consistently well managed.

The ITIL Service Design publication focuses on the holistic design requirements related to people, process, technology and governance needed to convert strategic objectives into value focused IT service portfolios.

The scope of Service Design is not limited to new services. It includes the changes and improvements necessary to increase or maintain value to customers over the lifecycle of services, the continuity of services, achievement of service levels, and conformance to standards and regulations. It guides organizations on how to develop design capabilities for service management.

Successful Service Transition depends on an effective understanding and application of Change Management, quality assurance and risk management, as well as effective program and project management. This makes it possible, at every stage through Service Transition to plan, monitor and confirm progress against current business requirements, not just for one service but across all services in transition. Service Transition does not end abruptly when a new or changed service goes live; rather, it works with Service Operation to deliver early life support.
