Its audience ranges from IT and business students taking their first steps in service management to seasoned professionals familiar with earlier versions of ITIL and other sources of industry best practice.
ITIL is a widely adopted body of knowledge and best practices for successful IT Service Management that links with training and certification.

ITIL 4 provides the guidance organizations need to address new service management challenges and utilize the potential of modern technology. It is designed to ensure a flexible, coordinated and integrated system for the effective governance and management of IT-enabled services.
The guidance provided in the ITIL® Foundation Guide can be adopted and adapted for all types of organizations and services. To show how the concepts of ITIL can be practically applied to an organization’s activities, ITIL Foundation follows the exploits of a fictional company on its ITIL journey.
The guide covers key concepts of service management, the four dimensions of service management, the ITIL service value system, ITIL management practices.
