The concept of a Service Management Office (SMO) is introduced, along with opportunities for combining roles and justifying dedicated roles. Learn More

The course focuses on the definition and development of a Service Catalog. Instructors lead facilitated discussions about service definitions, the difference between business and technical services and the form and format of an organization’s Service Catalog. The course materials, exercises and discussion provide learners with a solid starting point and the imperative skills to continue defining their services and building their catalog. Learn More
ITSM Leadership Skills – The fundamental principle of People, Process and Technology is the foundation for a successful ITIL implementation.
