ITIL 4 Strategist: Direct, Plan and Improve

What is ITIL 4?

ITIL 4 provides you with comprehensive guidance for the management of information technology in the modern service economy. The ITIL 4 framework is built on established ITSM practices and expands itself to the wider context of customer experience, value streams and digital transformation, as well as embracing new ways of working, such as Lean, Agile, and DevOps.

ITIL 4 expands on previous versions by providing a practical and flexible basis to support organizations on their journey to the new world of digital transformation. It provides an end-to-end IT/digital operating model for the delivery and operation of tech-enabled products and services. IT teams are enabled to continue to play a crucial role in the wider business strategy.

The ITIL 4 certification pathway image above shows the different modules a learner can study to reach an ITIL designation. For example, to be recognised as an ITIL Managing Professional, a learner would need to be certified in the four modules under the ITIL Managing Professional (MP) heading. That includes ITIL 4 Specialist: Create, Deliver & Support, ITIL 4 Specialist: Drive Stakeholder Value, ITIL 4 Specialist: High Velocity IT, and ITIL 4 Strategist: Direct, Plan & Improve. There are two more designations: ITIL Strategic Leader (SL) which would require a learner to be certified in two ITIL 4 modules, ITIL Leader: Digital & IT Strategy and ITIL Strategist: Direct, Plan & Improve. The final designation is ITIL Master, which would require a learner to be designated as both an ITIL Managing Professional (MP) and ITIL Strategic Leader (SL).

This ITIL eLearning 4 Strategist Direct, Plan, and Improve module explores how to improve and manage the working culture to encourage continual improvement and encourage strategic decision making.

A learner is required to hold a valid ITIL 4 Foundation certificate before enrolling in this eLearning ITIL 4 Strategist Direct, Plan, and Improve course.
