The ITIL training course has taken the world by storm over the recent years. It has changed the way IT service management is thought of and how it works. However, there are a few aspects of the ITIL methodology that many individuals have some problems with getting their heads around. Therefore I am to provide a little information on the ITIL lifecycle phase in light of the service strategy.
During the ITIL certification with The Knowledge Academy individuals will learn the axis of the lifecycle which is introduced. The service strategy itself delivers guidance during the designing, developing and implement of service management as a strategy. This is critical to the context of the processes of ITIL as a whole. This service strategy works to give an extensive understanding of the ITIL framework – organisations who already use ITIL will have use this as a guideline for development. ITIL will also allow individuals and organisations to improve the synergy between IT and the overall business strategies.
IT is vital to have a strategy in place when working with ITIL as it works to maintain the link between the policies and tactics put into place. The goal of the service strategy is to identify any competition in the market and compete by ensuring their organisation is more distinguished than its competition. ITIL will look at the following when doing this;
When doing this there are 4 points which must be considered throughout;
The development of this service strategy is crucial and will require constant revision at regular intervals to ensure it is meeting all business goals and tactics. If this strategy is effective then the lifecycle itself will be effective.
