Course description

ITIL Continual Service Improvement - In House

The Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) has become the de-facto best practice standard for the provision of high quality IT services worldwide. It provides guidance to customers of Information Technology services on what they should demand, and for IT organizations the various publications identify what should be provided and how to maximize efficiency and effectiveness.

The Office of the Government Commerce commissioned a program to review the best practice framework in 2005. The result was the launch of five core books in May 2007, referred to as ITIL V3, for the practice of Service Management in Information Technology.

The 3-day ITIL V3 Continual Service Improvement (CSI) course is an independent certification and also prepares the candidate for the Managing Across the Lifecycle and ITIL Expert certifications. This course covers all the initiatives required to align and to re-align services and processes to meet business objectives and goals.

You will gain detailed knowledge of the contents of the ITIL V3 Continual Service Improvement publication. The lectures and exercises in this class will provide you with both the information that you need and practice in applying the important CSI principles. During this course we will explore what is required to establish a framework for continual improvements as transformational improvements have not been successful in the last few decades.
