ITIL Foundation – Course Description:
This course provides comprehensive first-level training for anyone involved in provision, support, and delivery of IT Services. The ITIL® Framework acts as a source of good practice in service management. ITIL® is used by organizations worldwide to establish and improve capabilities in service management.
Service management is a set of specialized organizational 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 specializations in strategy, design, transition, operation, and continual improvement. The capabilities represent a service organization’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 organization is merely a bundle of resources that, by itself, has relatively low intrinsic value for customers
