Why study this course

This three-day training course in ITIL® 4 Plan, Implement and Control (PIC) is focused on the five practices that support effective planning, deployment, and management of services and assets, and is structured and aligned around the ITIL framework. It is designed to equip professionals with the necessary skills and knowledge to manage change within an organisation and minimise disruption by applying concepts, techniques, and strategies to the change management process. These practices ensure alignment with business objectives, minimise risk, and maximise value of assets through lifecycle management.

The ITIL 4 PIC course is part of the ITIL 4 Practice Manager (PM) designation, which encompasses a set of practice-based modules designed for performing specific work or accomplishing an objective. The practices are also enriched with additional guidance on the capability model based on the ITIL 4 maturity model.

  • ITIL 4 Change Enablement Practice

  • ITIL 4 Release Management Practice

  • ITIL 4 Service Configuration Management Practice
