ITIL is the leading Service Management best practice in the world and has been for over 30 years. ITIL 4 builds upon this experience to reshape the framework and modernize the practices to include concepts such as customer experience, value streams and digital transformation.
ITIL 4 reorganizes the framework and moves on from the IT Service lifecycle we have come to know in Version 3. ITIL 4 is now based on 2 key components: The ITIL Service Value System and the Four Dimensions Model.
ITIL 4 is documented in a series of books starting with Foundation, which align with the new ITIL 4 certification scheme.
There are 3 Specialist books:
There is one Strategist book
There is one Leader book
See our page on the ITIL 4 Certification Scheme for more information on how to get certified and the different types of certifications.
