Development of a service catalog is a necessary step in the Service Level Management process. The catalog defines guidelines and reasonable expectations for interactions between IT and the business customers and users it serves, and most industry experts agree that it is a first step to shifting IT operational objectives toward more service-based, demand-driven activities. As a primary method for describing and selling IT services to users, the catalog can effectively demonstrate the value of IT to the business. In turn, customers and users find it easier to work with IT, and IT finds it easier to continuously improve the efficiency of its service delivery.

In this ITIL v3 Service Catalog course, participants will not only learn how to build a service catalog business case, but also how to initiate, plan for, implement and manage their IT service catalog in accordance with ITIL v3 best practices. The course is based on the guidelines of the ITIL framework, and is enhanced in the classroom by the instructor's extensive, practical experience in developing IT service catalogs.

Incorporate the ITIL best practices learned in this course into your IT service management infrastructure and:

  • Begin the cultural shift from a system-oriented perspective to service-oriented perspective
  • Build an understanding within IT of how customers perceive the services offered by IT
  • Jump-start or reinvigorate the process for creation and publication of your department's service catalog
  • Create this important foundation for the implementation other ITIL and ITSM processes

The training material is delivered in a practical, hands-on learning environment, and an engaging case study-based approach -- specific to v3 Service Catalogs and service catalog management -- is used to prepare participants for the certification exam given at the end of the session. Candidates may combine ITIL v3 Service Catalog certification credits with other ITIL intermediate course credits to obtain higher-level ITIL qualifications.
