ITIL® V3 Foundation Complete Certification Guidebook
Study Guide to Pass In First Attempt
The Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL®) has become the standard framework for the IT service industry. In this the author explains what ITIL is and how it can help align IT services with the needs of your organization. The book is comprised of eight modules, drawn from ITIL objectives that follow the phases of the service life cycle. Author explains the key principles, models, and concepts behind the ITIL model of service management, and then dives deep into the life-cycle processes, from business-relationship management to problem management and by using some using real-word examples.
Welcome to the ITIL Foundation Exam Guide, as many of you guys out there may have heard, that the ITIL infrastructure library has become the prominent framework in our IT service industry around IT service management.
We have broken out this book into several modules and each one of those modules will be broken down into smaller information sub-sections.
One of the primary focuses of ITIL is really around the service and the life cycle that those services go through. So, we'll make sure that you have a good understanding of what those life cycle phases are, as well as the processes that are part of those phases.
Talk about the relevance of IT service management to your organization. What we'd like to do here is bring up some specific examples, some history that I may have around ITIL to help you understand some of the basic concepts so that you cannot just, so that you don't just learn the model, you understand how to apply the model across your organization. And then finally, this is also a preparation for the Foundation exam. We'll talk a little bit more about what the exam consists of here.
So, what I'd like for you to do is prepare yourself for the exam and I really want you to understand what this ITIL stuff is all about. Number one, like I mentioned before, the service life cycle.
You'll hear me talk about things like service strategy, service design, service transition, service operation, and continual service improvement. Now, that may be foreign to you today, but as soon as you walk through several of these, those will start to make a lot of sense to you.
We will talk about those life cycle phases. We'll talk about capabilities and resources organizations should have to help drive services and drive them through their life cycles. We'll talk a little bit about quality, quality of processes, and quality of services and so on. So those are the topics that we're going to cover in this Book.
