OBJECTIVES
Managing Across the Lifecycle is a five-day course that provides a holistic picture of the critical learning points and knowledge IT management staff require on key organizational topics such as: governance structures, roles, functions, process dependencies, complementary frameworks, service assessments and the management of change issues related to the ITIL® service lifecycle. After taking this course, you will be better equipped to understand the strategic design, deployment and management of the capabilities and resources required by the full IT service lifecycle.

Specifically, this course addresses the interfaces, interactions and organizational requirements between the processes addressed in the five core ITIL V3 publications: Service Strategy, Service Design, Service Transition, Service Operation and Continual Service Improvement.

This course also prepares participants for the examination leading to the ITIL Intermediate Certificate: Managing Across the Lifecycle. This is a free-standing qualification, but is also the final module of the Service Lifecycle and/or Service Capability modules that leads to the ITIL Expert certification.

This class is also available as On-Demand - 6-month subscription.
