When you think of reasons for contacting the IT Department in your organization, it’s most likely to resolve a problem. Typically you contact them when something isn’t working right – whether it be a connection error, system crash, or other incident that impedes your ability to do your work. But more often than not Service Desks also field requests for numerous situations that don’t typically fall into the ‘out of order’ category, but require attention, time, and a quick turnaround – for example, someone needs a new password, to change an existing password, or they need to add a new software program to their machine. It is important for organizations to be able to manage these demands in an efficient way by having processes mapped out for these repetitive requests, and having dedicated staff to support these requests.
This course provides an introduction to Request Fulfillment. Specifically, the course covers the purpose, scope, and benefits of Request Fulfillment to the organization. This course also covers the importance of Request Models, and the activities of Request Fulfillment including menu selection, financial and other approval, fulfillment, and closure.
This course will assist the learner in preparing for the ITIL® Operational Support and Analysis certificate and is aligned with the ITIL® Intermediate syllabus.
