Who can benefit from ITIL?

ITIL4® Foundation is suitable for anyone who wants to get a basic understanding of the ITIL framework and how it may be used to enhance the quality of IT service management within a business. The ITIL 4 Foundation also applies to IT professionals who work within an existing business that has adopted ITIL already and now want to improve on what they have already implemented, as well as:

How can ITIL benefit your organisation?

ITIL is a set of best practice processes for delivering IT services to your organization’s customers. ITIL has its foundations in the IT world, but its principles can easily be used outside of it, within Facilities or HR departments, for instance.

You can maximise value to the business by aligning your organization’s processes and services with your business needs. Applying ITIL offers multiple advantages by:

  • Giving input for process improvements and helping to solve service delivery issues.
  • Stimulating process-based thinking and working, while making the effects of doing this visible.
  • Introducing a general terminology used by service providers and customers, so that everyone is always on the same page

The ITIL® 4 course introduces students to the Service Value System (SVS) which describes how all the components and activities of the organisation work together as a system to enable value creation. The ITIL SVS supports many work approaches, such as Agile, DevOps and Lean as well as traditional and more common project management.
