Purpose of this course

Why combine training with a Quanta business game?
Simple, conventional training is not always enough on its own.  It is often hard to transfer the knowledge gained whilst studying into the reality of everyday business. The best way to learn this is by doing! With this course you will do just that, experience firsthand the benefits of IT Service Management, skills, techniques and best practice.

Who is this course for

The course is for all IT professionals involved in the delivery of business-focused IT services and anyone wishing to gain a formal ITIL qualification and understand how to practically apply this knowledge.

You will learn how to
  • Apply and deliver the ITIL framework
  • Deliver the changes required to make ITIL work
  • Recognise the common language and ideas that are embedded throughout ITIL
  • Make sense of the lifecycle approach to delivering services in line with best practices
  • Identify the processes used throughout the ITIL lifecycle model
  • Understand the core tools that are discussed throughout the framework
  • Prepare for the ‘PEOPLECERT Foundation Certificate in IT Service Management’ exam.
Benefits for your organisation

Not only will the organisation will have an individual with an understanding of what the ITIL service management framework can offer and allow them to more fully understand and participate in service delivery programmes within the organisation. But they will be able to demonstrate how to apply this in the working environment having had to apply it first-hand at least cone already.

Benefits for you as an individual

You will learn an extremely well recognised and used framework for delivering services and be presented with an opportunity to take a recognised and sought after qualification.  However you will also know how to use this knowledge and transfer it straight from the classroom into the live working environment.  This will mean you can add far more value to your organisation from day one after the course.

ThirdBrain Simulation™

The first day of the course will be taught via a ThirdBrain™ simulation, this will either be Apollo 13 or Operation Aftermath depending on what best suits your requirements.  Throughout the week there will be time to reflect on this experience and the theory which has been learnt.  This gives the opportunity to understand what principles and processes were required and should have been applied during the simulation.
