Implementing processes and technologies in any organization requires significant planning, analysis and management. Implementing Service Management process capabilities is no different. The method of implementation must be planned, requirements must be identified, and technologies must be carefully evaluated before proceeding with the implementation. Expected challenges and potential risks must also be identified and mitigated wherever possible.

This course covers the technology considerations when implementing Service Management process capabilities, including the generic tool requirements and how to properly evaluate tools for consideration.

This course also covers implementation considerations, including best practices in Project, Risk and Staff Management, as well as challenges, risks, and critical success factors to address during implementation.

This course will assist the learner in preparing for the ITIL® Operational Support and Analysis certificate and is aligned with the ITIL® Intermediate syllabus.
