New certification available: ITIL Practitioner is soon here!

2015 is the year of great news. Besides the arrival of PRINCE2 Agile, AXELOS now announced that there will also be a ITIL Practitioner examination!

ITIL is a worldwide standard describing how IT resources should be organised and aligned to satisfy the needs of businesses.
More than 2,000,000 people have taken the ITIL examinations in over 180 countries since ti first was launched.

Peter Hepworth, AXELOS Chief Executive, announced at the recent ITSMF Conference in Singapore that an ITIL Practitioner qualification is being developed. This will focus on adopting and adapting ITIL in organisations. It will provide practical guidance for Continual Service Improvement, making use of technology and leveraging other philosophies and methods.

The Practitioner training plan and examination are still under progress and are estimated to be clear for launch by the end of 2015.
The exam’s outline will be very similar to the other Practitioner Best Practie exams including a case study and multiple choice format.

AVC has the pleasure to announce that we will offer ITIL Practitioner courses and exams towards Q4 2015. We will keep you posted as more information will become available from AXELOS.

PRINCE2® is becoming more agile! We welcome a new product – PRINCE2® Agile

The latest AXELOS initiative – the first major product development from its project and programme management (PPM) portfolio – will seek to blend the best of PRINCE2 and agile methods in the “PRINCE2 agile” best practice guide and qualification.

Scheduled for launch in Q1/Q2 2015, PRINCE2 agile is already a work in progress, with agile guru Keith Richards of agileKRC as lead author. Along with talking directly to other agile gurus globally during the research process, Keith will be working alongside nominated mentor Larry Cooper of BSSNexus Global Inc. in North America to get his regional perspective.

The aim is to provide additional information for organizations and individuals already using PRINCE2 but involved in agile methods. The guide will help experienced PRINCE2 practitioners tailor management controls for agile development while helping agile developers understand PRINCE2 governance requirements.

Frances Scarff, Product Development Director at AXELOS said: “We believe the concepts in PRINCE2 and agile are complementary, mutually supportive and should be part of the skills toolkit for professionals responsible for both project management and agile delivery.”

We will update this page as the project progresses.
