Where ITIL Foundation focuses on ‘what’ and ‘why’, ITIL Practitioner shows ‘how’ to start adopting an ITIL framework and adapt it to day-to-day situations and responsibilities, giving individuals more confidence in their ability to structure and contribute to ITSM initiatives. ITIL Practitioner does not replace any existing ITIL qualifications. It is complementary to, and fits in with, the current ITIL qualifications scheme.
Why take this ITIL Practitioner training?
ITIL Practitioner offers practical guidance to support your business objectives, develop the skills needed to apply ITIL concepts in the organization and ensure business value by delivering fit-for-purpose and fit-for-use services. At the same time, the course and qualification gives confidence to managers that graduates are ready to initiate and successfully carry out required improvement initiatives. This training course focuses on the Continual Service Improvement (CSI) approach as a way to structure improvement initiatives. ITIL Practitioner also covers three key areas crucial to the success of any improvement initiatives:
Organizational Change Management
Measurement and Metrics
As this is a Practitioner course, the focus is on acquiring skills. For that purpose, this course introduces the concept of scenario-based learning with a multimedia case study and modular exercises.

The case study deepens the participant’s appreciation of how ITIL best practices can be applied in order to improve IT performance.
