This course demonstrates how IT creates value outside of internal operations, enabling ITIL 4 practitioners to deal with the business aspects of IT with greater clarity and certainty. This, in turn, can better-qualify them for upper-tier management roles, as well as positions that see them liaise directly with stakeholders. At the same time, they will also gain a mastery of how to assess services and value streams and pick out areas for improvement.

Becoming certified in ITIL 4 is an excellent career stepping stone for ITSM managers and staff. Not only can it help them unlock higher responsibilities within their own businesses, but it can also qualify them for even greater career and networking opportunities elsewhere.

When it comes to designing, creating, maintaining, and improving IT-powered products and services, value is just as important as efficiency. Your operations may be perfectly streamlined, but if they are not focused on catering to the needs of end-users, you will inevitably suffer from reduced ROIs, as well as lost business. By teaching your ITSM managers and team members to focus on creating value, you will be able to enjoy a far more profitable environment overall.

This course was designed with input from highly experienced subject matter experts who boast years of knowledge in how to successfully implement the tools and best practices of ITIL. As well as preparing for the ITIL DSV exam, students will also learn how to apply their new knowledge in practice, enabling them to start creating benefits for their organizations as quickly as possible. Good e-Learning also has a world-class support team that is fully prepared to answer questions on course content, ensuring that each learner has everything they need to obtain their ITIL 4 DSV certification.
