Agile - Large organisation, slow to catch on?

ITIL Foundation and Practitioner FAST TRACK INTENSIVE

Quanta is pleased to announce the launch of ‘ITIL Foundation and Practitioner FAST TRACK INTENSIVE’ - a new course which combines the ITIL Foundation and ITIL Practitioner courses for those that need both the broad understanding and the principles of organisational change to apply that learning into one.

 

ITIL lifecycle business game launched

Can you satisfy the "Powers-That-Be" that this humanitarian effort is a beacon to the world for how these efforts should be managed? If so, then welcome to Ocean City after some of the worst flooding in history and take on the challenge of OPERATION AFTERMATH - an IT Service Management business game.

This infographic is useful in showing some of the course options available to address key questions in NHS IT departments.  Whether using the ITIL framework to match NHS aspirations or Resilia to ensure cyber resilience is 'baked-in' to IT services;  Quanta has many course options available on site at your premises or at the Worcester Training Centre.

Shake up your training with business games

This term, ‘Business Game’, is it really the next generation of classroom learning?  Well, anything that has ‘grabbing a pizza’, ‘a slowly dying spacecraft’ or ‘building a rollercoaster’ has the effect of piquing the interest of most before they even set foot through the door.  That’s a good start, so no more dragging your teams, kicking and screaming to a week of death by PowerPoint. 

Spring Discounted Courses

What's happened to the weather!?  To brighten things up we're offering some hot discounts on numerous courses.  See all courses to check dates and availability.  And if you can't see what you want or the dates aren't right, please contact us - we'll look into your request straight away.
