ITIL® Certification Training

Skillsoft offers wide topic coverage on ITIL® Certification Training, from novice to expert certification, delivered in a variety of learning modalities.

The most widely accepted approach to IT Service Management (ITSM) in the world, ITIL is a best practices framework that enables businesses to deliver high-quality IT services and more effectively manage IT operations. ITIL is gaining traction worldwide as an IT service management methodology.

ITIL and Six Sigma

ITIL pairs extremely well with Six Sigma. ITIL defines the “what” of service management and Six Sigma defines the “how” of quality improvement. Together, they make a great combination for improving the quality of IT service delivery and support. Rather than being opposing approaches, Six Sigma and ITIL are complementary.

There are both business and organizational benefits to adopting ITIL®

  • A large multinational company made annual savings of £5MM.
