ITIL Practitioner Guidance is the essential reference text which accompanies the ITIL Practitioner qualification. Fully integrated with the ITIL Practitioner syllabus, this title is also a practical guide that helps IT service management (ITSM) professionals turn ITIL theory into practice through case studies, worksheets, templates and scenarios.

The title assumes knowledge of ITIL and ITSM up to ITIL Foundation level, and begins with a discussion of the guiding principles of ITSM:

  • Focus on value

  • Start where you are

  • Progress iteratively

  • Be transparent

  • Keep it simple

  • Design for experience

  • Work holistically

  • Observe directly

  • Collaborate

It goes on to explain how these guiding principles are essential for ITSM and how they relate to philosophies, frameworks and methodologies such as DevOps, Lean, Agile etc.

The content shows how following the CSI (continual service improvement) approach, and how the core skills of organizational change management, communication, metrics and measurement, can underpin successful ITSM improvement initiatives.

Assembled by the Practitioner Architect Team of Kevin Behr, Karen Ferris, Lou Hunnebeck, Stuart Rance, Barclay Rae and Paul Wilkinson, a team of renowned ITSM experts under the guidance of AXELOS' Kaimar Karu, ITIL Practitioner Guidance concludes with a practical toolkit containing templates, worksheets and assessments that will help ITSM professionals to improve the value of the service they provide to their customers.

Please note: Erratum Page 46, section, Carrying out a benefits realization review

Instead of reading: "The benefits realization review should be carried out after the completion of the 'How do we get there' step for each improvement,"

It should read: "While the expected benefits should be captured in the 'Where do we want to be?' step as part of the business case, the benefits realization review should be carried out after the completion of the 'Did we get there?' step for each improvement,"
