ITIL4® Awareness

Understand what the latest version of ITIL offers to further your Service Management efforts.

This course is intended to provide delegates with an overview of the ITIL4® framework. It covers the basics of understanding VALUE from a Service Management perspective, the 7 Guiding Principles, the major Service Management Practices and the Service Value System.

As an Awareness course it does not go into as much detail in these areas as a full ITIL4® Foundation course would over 3 days. Where that level of coverage isn't required, such as where non-IT staff need an appreciation of how service management could benefit them and what it means to them, then this should be the appropriate amount of coverage.

Estimates are not reality

Estimates are not reality - no matter how much we might hope them to be. You know the scenario: Roadworks are put in place. An end date is scheduled. The end date is then missed. ‘Why can't we plan these projects so that we deliver the work on time?’ is the common cry! A number of us in the Midlands have seen this scenario with the roadworks on the M5 at Oldbury Viaduct (between Junctions 1 and 2). The project started in January 2017...
