ITIL

ABOUT ITIL®

IT Infrastructure Library® (ITIL) is the most widely adopted framework for IT Service Management in the world. It is a practical approach to identifying, planning, delivering and supporting IT services to the business. It describes how IT resources should be organized to deliver business value, documenting the processes, functions and roles of IT Service Management (ITSM).

ITIL principles are used by a number of organizations in both the public and private sectors such as NASA, IBM, HP, British Telecom, HSBC bank and L’Oreal.

ITIL is created and owned by the Cabinet Office. ITIL best practices are explained in the five core guidance publications outlining the fundamental ITIL principles that focus on various areas within the service management discipline.

ITIL best practices also underpin the foundations of ISO/IEC 20000 (previously BS15000), the International Service Management Standard for organizational certification and compliance.From 2000 to 2010 OGC was custodian of the intellectual property and since 2010 the Cabinet Office has owned and created further intellectual property assets. On 1 July 2013 ‘AXELOS’ was announced as the name for the Joint Venture company that the Cabinet Office has formed to deliver and commercialize the UK Government’s portfolio of Best Practice accreditation and publishing services, including the ITIL and PPM product sets. AXELOS now owns the intellectual property of the whole Global Best Practice portfolio and will build on the current business activities and developing products in new areas.

AXELOS Intellectual Property relates to the logos, word marks and copyright text/diagrams associated with AXELOS products.

ITIL Foundataion

ITIL Foundation

What you will learn:

The ITIL® Foundation Certificate is a three day course in which delegates will gain a comprehensive grounding in the aspects of ITIL® service management. Delegates will prepare for and sit the one hour, multiple- choice ITIL® Foundation certificate in service management exam. The course consists of short lectures, exercises, discussions, examination technique training, mock examinations and culminates in an invigilated exam on the third day.

Effective and formal IT Service Management will give an organization a clear view of its IT capabilities. It will give the IT department a clear understanding of the customer’s needs, drivers and motivation. The interlocking IT Service Management disciplines will allow the needs of the customer to be matched by the capability of the services being offered.

In documenting best practice ITIL has laid before us a professional approach to the provision of IT services. In the ITIL world measurement and monitoring are critical. We are able to focus on the needs of the business and to measure the performance of the services offered, reviewing and improving on a continual basis.

Critical among costs the Service Management disciplines is Availability Management. If services are not available then it’s not a service. All the service support and service delivery disciplines work together to deliver agreed levels of service availability to our customers.

Delivery of service availability to meet customer needs benefits the whole organization. Customer satisfaction is greatly increased, as is the motivation of those staff involved in service provision.

Overall, professional IT Service Management disciplines will deliver improved quality of service to customers enabling the business to reduce costs, derive higher revenues and hence increased profit.

This course leads to the ITIL® Foundation level certification. Delegates are prepared for the Foundation examination and will normally take this examination on the third day of the course. The Foundation qualification is a pre-requisite for the ITIL Intermediate examinations.

The ITIL Foundation examination is a closed- book 60 minute 40 multiple choice question paper. The pass mark is 65% (26 marks required to pass out of 40 available).

Audience Profile

The target groups of the ITIL® Foundation Certificate are:

  • Individuals who require a basic understanding of the refreshed ITIL® framework and how it may be used to enhance the quality of IT service management within an organization.
  • IT professionals that are working within an organization that has adopted and adapted ITIL®, who need to be informed about and thereafter contribute to, an ongoing service improvement program.

Prerequisites

There are no pre-requisites for this course, nor is there any pre-course preparation required. Evening work is not compulsory, although it may benefit delegates to ensure they have consolidated each day’s learning through reading and checking notes. This should take no longer than an hour each evening, although further self-study is encouraged.

Course Learning Objectives

One of the major benefits MyITstudy offers students is one month of free access to online study materials, which includes process charts, study guides and exam tips.

Students do not have to bring anything to class. All materials are provided!

Student Workbook:

MyITstudy course content has been updated to align with the 2011 syllabus. The workbook contains an introduction along with chapters detailing each stage of the Service Lifecycle:

  • Service Strategy,
  • Service Design,
  • Service Transition,
  • Service Operation and
  • Continual Service improvement.

The purpose, value, scope and objectives of each process and function as well as ITIL terminology is explained in detail. This workbook contains simple, yet informative, real-life situations that help students contextualize important ITIL concepts. Each chapter is complemented by a brief chapter test that reinforces retention and application of important concepts.

Chapter Test Workbook:

Students can discuss important concepts during the interactive session after each chapter while they are given feedback on areas of improvement. The chapter test workbook also contains justifications for all the chapter test questions to help students understand each concept.

Mock Exam:

This exam has been modelled after the ITIL Foundation Exam. The mock test is conducted on the second day of class, prior to the actual ITIL Foundation exam. It consists of 40 questions that mimic the type of questions students will see on the real exam. It helps students prepare for the final exam and assists them in understanding their strengths and weaknesses.

Case Study:

Implementing the ITIL framework is as necessary as the knowledge of ITIL concepts is, in creating a successful organization. MyITstudy understands this reality and has prepared case studies based on real-life experiences, which offers a balance between theoretical concepts and implementable knowledge of the ITIL framework. A service topic is chosen and is explained with reference to each component of the Service Lifecycle in ITIL Foundation. With this method, students can get an idea of how to formulate an ITIL culture in their respective organizations to improve service delivery and productivity.

Prince2

ABOUT PRINCE2®

What is PRINCE2?

PRINCE2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a process-based method for effective project management.

PRINCE2 is a defacto standard used extensively by the UK Government. It is widely recognised and used in the private sector in UK and other countries.
The PRINCE2 method is in the public domain, offering non-proprietary best practice guidance on project management. PRINCE2 is a registered trademark of AXELOS.

PRINCE2 History

PRINCE2 is derived from an earlier method called PROMPTII, and from project management method PRINCE, which was developed in 1989 by the Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA) as a UK Government standard for information systems (IT) project management; however, it soon came to be regularly applied outside the purely IT environment. PRINCE2 was published in 1996, having been contributed to by a consortium of some 150 European organisations.
PRINCE2 has become increasingly popular and is now a de facto standard for project management in the UK. Its use has spread beyond the UK to more than 50 other countries. The current revision was released in 2009.

PRINCE2 Advantage

  • PRINCE2 is a structured approach to project management.
  • It provides a method for managing projects within a clearly defined framework
  • PRINCE2 describes procedures to coordinate people and activities in a project, design and supervise the project, and suggests alternatives if the project doesn’t develop as planned.
  • In this method, each process is specified with its key inputs and outputs and lays down activities to be carried out to achieve these outputs.
  • PRINCE2 method enables efficient control of resources through its principle of ‘management by stages’.
  • The PRINCE2 project can be carried out in a controlled and organised way.
  • PRINCE2, being a structured method that is widely recognised and understood, provides a common language for all the participants in the project.
  • The various management roles and responsibilities involved in a PRINCE2 project are clearly defined and are adaptable to suit the complexity of the project and the organisational environment.

Why PRINCE2® ?

PRINCE2® (Projects IN Controlled Environments) is a process-based approach for project management providing an easily tailored and scalable method for the management of all types of projects. The method is the de-facto standard for project management in the UK and is practiced worldwide.

The continued international development of PRINCE2 examinations, training and course material is contributing significantly to the recognition of PRINCE2 as a truly international standard. More and more people are having the opportunity to benefit from the training courses and certifications that are available worldwide.

Benefits for Individuals

  • Learn how to manage projects or to work in a project environment using the most internationally recognized project management method.
  • Ensure that team members focus on the viability of the project in relation to its business case objectives – rather than simply seeing the completion of the project as an end in itself.
  • Promote consistency of project work and the ability to reuse project assets while facilitating staff mobility and reducing the impact of personnel changes/handovers.
  • Design plans and reports to meet the needs of each level in the project team and Project Board, improving communication and control.
  • Mitigate perceived problems and issues and focus on the viability of the project throughout.
  • Evaluate the project portfolio to bring clarity and allow improvements in reviewing projects.

Benefits for Organizations

  • Benefit from a shared and thoroughly understood language and approach to reporting which will save time and effort.
  • Increase staff awareness of their roles and responsibilities in the project management life cycle.
  • Utilize an invaluable diagnostic tool, facilitating the assurance and assessment of project work, troubleshooting and audits.
  • Ensure stakeholders (including sponsors and resource providers) are properly represented in planning and decision making.
  • Enable more effective engagement of stakeholders in the process of project approval and management.

———————————————————————————-

PRINCE2® METHODOLOGY

There are six variables involved in any project, and therefore six aspects of project performance to be managed:

  • Costs
  • Timescales
  • Quality
  • Scope
  • Risk
  • Benefits

PRINCE2 is an integrated framework of processes and themes that addresses the planning, delegation, monitoring and control of all these six aspects of project performance.

THE STRUCTURE OF PRINCE2

The PRINCE2 method addresses project management with four integrated elements of principles, themes, processes and the project environment:

  1. The Principles – These are the guiding obligations and good practices which determine whether the project is genuinely being managed using PRINCE2. There are seven principles and unless all of them are applied, it is not a PRINCE2 project.
  2. The Themes – These describe aspects of project management that must be addressed continually and in parallel throughout the project. The seven themes explain the specific treatment required by PRINCE2 for various project management disciplines and why they are necessary.
  3. The Processes – These describe a step-wise progression through the project lifecycle, from getting started to project closure. Each process provides checklists of recommended activities, products and related responsibilities.
  4. Tailoring PRINCE2 to the Project Environment – This chapter addresses the need to tailor PRINCE2 to the specific context of the project. PRINCE2 is not a ‘one size fits all’ solution; it is a flexible framework that can readily be tailored to any type or size of project.
Prince2 Foundation

PRINCE2® Foundation Course

What you will learn

The aim of this course is to provide delegates with sufficient knowledge and understanding of the PRINCE2® method to be able to work effectively with, or as a member of, a project management team working within an environment supporting PRINCE2®. The Foundation qualification is also a pre-requisite for the Practitioner qualification.

By the end of the course a delegate should understand the structure and key terminology of the method. Specifically the delegate should understand:

  • The characteristics and context of a project and the benefits of adopting PRINCE2®
  • The purpose of the PRINCE2® roles, management products and themes
  • The PRINCE2® principles
  • The purpose, objectives and context of the PRINCE2® processes.

There are no formal pre-requisites for this course.

Delegates should allow for 2 to 3 hours of evening work on each of the two evenings during the course. This is to allow consolidation of the learning provided during the day and to provide sufficient practice with the sample examination questions provided in order to pass.

The PRINCE2® Foundation examination is a closed- book 60 minute 75 multiple choice question paper with 5 questions to be trial and not counted in scores. The pass mark is 50% (35 marks required to pass out of 70 available).

Prince2 Practitioner

PRINCE2® Practitioner Course

What you will learn

At the end of this course the delegate will be prepared for the PRINCE2® practitioner exam.

The purpose of the Practitioner qualification is to confirm whether the candidate has achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor PRINCE2® in a scenario situation. A successful Practitioner candidate should, with suitable direction, be able to start applying the method to a real project but may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations. Their individual project management expertise, complexity of the project and the support provided for the use of PRINCE2® in their work environment will all be factors that impact what the Practitioner can achieve.

Candidates should be able to apply and understand how to tailor PRINCE2® effectively to a project within an organization environment supporting PRINCE2®. Specifically candidates should

  • Understand the relationships between the roles, management products, principles, themes, techniques and processes
  • Be able to apply the principles, themes and processes to a project
  • Be able to create and assess management products.

This course leads to the PRINCE2 ® practitioner level certification. The Practitioner examination is normally taken on the final day of the course.

The Practitioner examination is an open- book objective test examination based on a given scenario and lasting 150 minutes. There are 8 questions each worth 10 marks, making a total of 80 marks available. The pass mark is 55% (44 marks required to pass out of 80 available).

Prerequisite

There are no formal pre-requisites for this course. However, it is anticipated that delegates will possess knowledge of projects or have experience of working in a project environment. This is to ensure that the intensive nature of the course does not cause delegates to struggle through the course. If such knowledge or experience does not exist, delegates may be advised to split the course into the separate Foundation and Practitioner courses. The course may be booked as a single unit, to achieve the cost effectiveness, but schedule each course in different weeks. Please call your local office for further details.

There is between 6 and 15 hours of pre-course preparation to be completed and it is vital to the success of the course that this work is completed. The course is intensive and there will be no opportunity during the course itself to try and catch up. The actual time taken by each delegate will vary enormously and will depend on the individual, their learning style, existing knowledge or skills, and project management experience.

In addition, delegates should allow for 2 to 3 hours of evening work on each evening during the course. This is to allow consolidation of the learning provided during the day and to provide sufficient practice with the sample examination questions provided in order to pass.
