What is ITIL 4?

ITIL 4 provides you with comprehensive guidance for the management of information technology in the modern service economy. The ITIL 4 framework is built on established ITSM practices and expands itself to the wider context of customer experience, value streams and digital transformation, as well as embracing new ways of working, such as Lean, Agile, and DevOps.

ITIL 4 expands on previous versions by providing a practical and flexible basis to support organizations on their journey to the new world of digital transformation. It provides an end-to-end IT/digital operating model for the delivery and operation of tech-enabled products and services. IT teams are enabled to continue to play a crucial role in the wider business strategy.

The ITIL 4 certification pathway image above shows the different modules a learner can study to reach an ITIL designation. For example, to be recognised as an ITIL Managing Professional, a learner would need to be certified in the four modules under the ITIL Managing Professional (MP) heading. That includes ITIL 4 Specialist: Create, Deliver & Support, ITIL 4 Specialist: Drive Stakeholder Value, ITIL 4 Specialist: High Velocity IT, and ITIL 4 Strategist: Direct, Plan & Improve. There are two more designations: ITIL Strategic Leader (SL) which would require a learner to be certified in two ITIL 4 modules, ITIL Leader: Digital & IT Strategy and ITIL Strategist: Direct, Plan & Improve. The final designation is ITIL Master, which would require a learner to be designated as both an ITIL Managing Professional (MP) and ITIL Strategic Leader (SL).

This ITIL 4 Direct, Plan, and Improve module explores how to improve and manage the working culture to encourage continual improvement and encourage strategic decision making.

Suitable For:

This ITIL 4® Strategist: Direct, Plan, and Improve training course will enable learners to obtain and enhance the practical skills necessary to develop and nurture a “learning & improving” culture within an organisation, with strong strategic direction.

The course covers 5 key ITIL practices:

  • Continual improvement
  • Risk management
  • Organizational change management
  • Portfolio management
  • Measurement and reporting

During the training, learners will also explore how to improve the direction of organisational change, learn how to encourage a culture of continual improvement, align tactical and strategic activity and simplify decision-making. The course will provide an ideal reference point that candidates can use in day-to-day scenarios to overcome workplace challenges, as well as playing a part in future studies and professional development.

Accredited training for the ITIL Managing Professional modules is mandatory to enable full understanding of the core material.

All ITIL 4 Managing Professional modules required learners to hold an ITIL 4 Foundation certificate.
Once you have ITIL 4 Foundation certification, this course is one of 4 Specialist courses needed to achieve the ITIL 4 Managing Professional certification.
