ITIL Version 3 - Publications
ITIL V3 makes the link between ITIL's best practice and business benefits both clearer and stronger...

ITIL's most recent version, Version 3 (V3), represents an important evolutionary step in its life. The refresh has transformed the guidance from providing a great service to being the most innovative and best in class. At the same time, the interface between old and new approaches is seamless so that users do not have to reinvent the wheel when adopting it. V3 allows users to build on the successes of V2 but take IT service management even further.

In general, V3 makes the link between ITIL's best practice and business benefits both clearer and stronger. The main development is that V3 takes a lifecycle approach to guidance, as opposed to organising according to IT delivery sectors. To reinforce changes, the library has seen a major visual revamp with inspirational imagery based on natural themes and a new, clean layout.

The ITIL Version 3 English Library includes:

  • The Introduction to the ITIL Service Lifecycle
  • Service Strategy
  • Service Design

ITIL Frequently Asked Questions

The Introduction to the ITIL Service Lifecycle

This introduction is your gateway to ITIL. It explains the basic concept of IT service Management and the place of ITIL, introducing the new lifecycle model, which puts into context all the familiar ITIL processes from the earlier books. It also serves to illuminate the background of the new ITIL structure. This title introduces ITSM and ITIL, explains why the service lifecycle approach is best practice in today's ITSM, and makes a persuasive case for change.

After showing high level process models, it takes the reader through the main principles that govern the new version: lifecycle stages, governance and decision making, then the principles behind design and deployment, and operation and optimisation.
