Price: $12.50


A concise version of the guidance in the ITIL 2011 core volume Service Design, endorsed by itSMF International.

Each ITIL® Key Element Guide provides an overview of each of the five elements of the ITIL® service lifecycle, and is written by the same team which wrote the main ITIL® core titles. Key Element Guide: ITIL Service Design, 2011 Edition offers a concise summary of the contents of ITIL® 2011 Service Design, reducing the core volume to its salient points.

The purpose of the service design stage of the lifecycle is to design IT services, together with the governing IT practices, processes and policies, to realise the service provider’s strategy and to facilitate the introduction of these services into supported environments, ensuring quality service delivery, customer satisfaction and cost-effective service provision.

ITIL 2011 Service Design provides guidance for the design and development of services and service management practices. It covers:

  • Design principles and methods for converting strategic objectives into portfolios of services and service assets;
  • The changes and improvements necessary to increase or maintain value to customers over the lifecycle of services, the continuity of service, achievement of service levels, and conformance to standards and regulations;
  • Design coordination;
  • Service catalogue management;
  • Service level management
  • Availability management;
  • Capacity management;
  • IT service continuity management;
  • Information security management
  • Supplier management.

Summary of updates
