An official ITIL-Licensed product, ITIL Lifecycle Essentials covers the entry-level ITIL Foundation syllabus, and gives candidates a solid grounding in the key elements, concepts and terminology used in the ITIL service lifecycle.

The book includes:

  • a summary of the ITIL qualification scheme and the Foundation level, together with guidance on preparing for the exam

The essential link between your ITIL qualification and the real-world

Uniquely in a book written for Foundation candidates, ITIL Lifecycle Essentials gives practical guidance for newly qualified practitioners, helping them avoid common mistakes and pitfalls by addressing processes and concepts not covered in the syllabus. It features practical tips on using service management and, for each process, the author adds to the theory with lessons from her own real-world experience.
