IT Infrastructure Library® (ITIL) is the most widely adopted framework for IT Service Management in the world. It is a practical approach to identifying, planning, delivering and supporting IT services to the business. It describes how IT resources should be organized to deliver business value, documenting the processes, functions and roles of IT Service Management (ITSM).
ITIL principles are used by a number of organizations in both the public and private sectors such as NASA, IBM, HP, British Telecom, HSBC bank and L’Oreal.
ITIL is created and owned by the Cabinet Office. ITIL best practices are explained in the five core guidance publications outlining the fundamental ITIL principles that focus on various areas within the service management discipline.
ITIL best practices also underpin the foundations of ISO/IEC 20000 (previously BS15000), the International Service Management Standard for organizational certification and compliance.

- Service Strategy,
- Service Design,
- Service Transition,
- Service Operation and
- Continual Service improvement.
The purpose, value, scope and objectives of each process and function as well as ITIL terminology is explained in detail. This workbook contains simple, yet informative, real-life situations that help students contextualize important ITIL concepts. Each chapter is complemented by a brief chapter test that reinforces retention and application of important concepts.
Chapter Test Workbook:
Students can discuss important concepts during the interactive session after each chapter while they are given feedback on areas of improvement. The chapter test workbook also contains justifications for all the chapter test questions to help students understand each concept.
This exam has been modelled after the ITIL Foundation Exam.
The mock test is conducted on the second day of class, prior to the actual ITIL Foundation exam. It consists of 40 questions that mimic the type of questions students will see on the real exam. It helps students prepare for the final exam and assists them in understanding their strengths and weaknesses.
Implementing the ITIL framework is as necessary as the knowledge of ITIL concepts is, in creating a successful organization. MyITstudy understands this reality and has prepared case studies based on real-life experiences, which offers a balance between theoretical concepts and implementable knowledge of the ITIL framework. A service topic is chosen and is explained with reference to each component of the Service Lifecycle in ITIL Foundation. With this method, students can get an idea of how to formulate an ITIL culture in their respective organizations to improve service delivery and productivity.
