ISO 20000 Lead Implementer Path

This five-day intensive course enables participants to develop the necessary expertise to support an organization in implementing and managing an IT Service Management System as specified in ISO/IEC 20000-1:2018. Also, the participant will gain a thorough understanding of best practices for planning and implementing IT Service Management processes of ISO 20000, in particular: service portfolio processes; relationship and agreement processes; supply and demand processes; service design, build and transition processes; resolution and fulfilment processes; and, service assurance processes.
