Mastering ITIL Intermediate courses requires IT professionals to obtain a great depth of knowledge in the ITIL body of knowledge and to learn to apply this knowledge in real life. SecureNinja’s blended Service Strategy (SS) training course in Washington DC, San Diego, CA or in blended online format, uses an optimal mix of training methods to achieve this result in a way that is most convenient, effective and economical to participants. Participants obtain the ‘knowing’ component of the course by completing 8-hours of self-paced eLearning in their own time and at their own pace. After completion of the eLearning component of the course, the program taps into the natural strengths of the classroom. In 1.5 days, participants are provided with a safe environment where they can learn to ‘apply’ their knowledge through a combination of case studies, assignments and role-plays. Thinking beyond the traditional classroom “box” and presenting students with an optimal mix of learning methods
This ITIL Service Strategy course immerses participants in the overall concepts, processes, policies and methods associated with the Service Strategy phase of the Service Lifecycle. The course covers the management and control of the activities and techniques within the Service Strategy stage, but not the detail of each of the supporting processes.
