ITIL® Service Capability - Planning, Protection, and Optimisation Overview

This 5 day ITIL® Planning, Protection, and Optimisation course provides a comprehensive overview of this area of the Service Lifecycle and prepares you to take the Planning, Protection, and Optimisation exam, leading to the ITIL® PPO certification.

ITIL® Planning, Protection, and Optimisation is one of the nine ITIL® Intermediate courses which can be mixed and matched to gain the credits needed for the ITIL® Expert certification, and one of the four courses which make up the Service Capability Stream. Planning, Protection, and Optimisation concerns practices for capacity, availability, IT service continuity, information security and demand management.

This course explores the importance of careful planning, including planning for contingencies, disasters, and more, within the ITIL® Service Lifecycle. Delegates can expect to learn about designing services, including what to prioritise and how to identify service and business requirements and translate these into features; capacity management, which includes monitoring and tuning business activities, producing forecasts and capacity plans, and responding to incidents; and availability management, which covers implementing and improving an IT service, creating availability plans, conducting regular service tests, and analysing/evaluating failures to create useful feedback for future iterations of this process. The course then proceeds to cover IT service continuity management, teaching delegates how to use business impact analyses and risk analyses amongst other tools, as well as explaining why these are useful in the ITIL® Service Lifecycle.

Delegates will also learn about the importance of information security management, including how to create, implement, document, and evaluate IT security controls as well as how to manage security in relation to suppliers and external parties. The course also covers the supportive role of demand management before concluding with a look at the practicalities and roles associated with Planning, Protection and Optimisation, considering how to measure and improve PPO abilities. Individuals attending this course can expect to leave with a holistic understanding of PPO's role in the ITIL® Service Lifecycle and an awareness of how it might be applicable in their own practical contexts.

By providing a comprehensive ITIL® framework of what practices should be carried out to manage the Service Design stage, this Planning, Protection, and Optimisation course will be particularly beneficial to anybody involved in these activities.
