Organisational Benefits

By understanding and using ITIL® your IT organisation can move towards a Service Management culture where your IT team can be (and is recognised as) a key player in the success of your customers and users.

ITIL® helps you to attain that key status by understanding the link between IT services and customer/user outcomes. ITIL® then helps to understand the best ways to manage those services, making your IT organisation indispensable to your customers.

Individual Benefits

You will gain an understanding on how Planning, protection and optimisation forms the core of the Service Design stage of the ITIL® Lifecycle and works to try and ensure that designs meet organisational requirements (both now and in the future) and support the outcomes the organisation needs to achieve to be considered successful.

It will also become apparent from the training that any flaws in the service design activities will inevitably lead to a service that fails to meet the organisational needs and requirements, resulting in the need for remedial work being undertaken within the production environment, leading to dissatisfaction from the organisation, and additional workload for IT in trying to correct the design faults that exist.

By having a better understanding of the Best Practice framework, and in this particular course, Planning, protection and optimisation, it will enable you to identify areas for improvement back at the workplace, and allow you to develop your current role further, and help you do your job better.The reward being advancement within your company and a potential to increase your salary!
