The ITIL 4 certification scheme:


Facts to know about ITIL 4 so far:

  • The ITIL 4 IT service management model has been updated to include best practices from other methodologies, including Agile, DevOps, and Lean. This addresses one of the biggest user complaints about past versions of ITIL
  • The Service Value System, core to ITIL 4, promotes an anti-silo approach as well as better collaboration and communication across the whole organisation
  • It is designed to be more customisable and flexible. It focuses more on how things fit together as a big picture to create value, and less on process steps
  • Virtually all of ITIL v3’s 26 processes have been revitalised and incorporated, to a degree, into ITIL 4
  • Three of ITIL v3’s four functions have taken on new life as ITIL 4 practices
  • It’s being released in stages –  the ITIL 4 Foundation certification course was introduced earlier this year and the ITIL 4 advanced courses will be available in late 2019 or early 2020
  •  In the previous ITIL version, users were able to take various courses to collect the appropriate number of credits to become an ITIL Expert. Within the ITIL 4 certification scheme, students must take all four courses offered in the MP stream to achieve the ITIL Managing Professional (MP) designation.
  • In October, the ITIL 4 bridging module (officially named, the Managing Professional Transition course) will be introduced. This course will enable v3 experts to move over to ITIL Managing Professional. Dates available
