ITILISLMST - ITIL® Intermediate - Service Lifecycle Module – Service Transition
Certifications within the ITIL® Service Lifecycle work stream. This module focuses on the process and practice elements and management techniques required to build, test and implement products and services. It also demonstrates how service transition can apply to other stages of the IT Service lifecycle and can underpin decisions during the Strategy and Operations phases.
The ST module will teach you how to plan and manage the move into initial operation for the new or revised resources created during the Service Strategy and Service Design stages of the ITIL Service Lifecycle. In addition to providing guidance on techniques for organizing and managing the transition, the certification also covers management of technology considerations and challenges and risks.
The course covers management and control of activities and techniques that are documented in the ITIL Service Transition publication, but it does not provide the full detail of each supporting process. More information about these processes can be found in the Release, Control and Validation module from the Service Capability work stream.
The techniques taught in the ST module can help organizations and individuals better understand and manage changes to IT services in line with users’ expectations and business strategy. Service transition is vital for flexibly managing changes and delivering improvement to services provided by organizations or programmes of work.

The ITIL Intermediate Level has a modular structure with each module providing a different focus on IT Service Management. You can take as few or as many Intermediate qualifications as you need. The Intermediate modules go into more detail than the Foundation certification and focus on different areas of the framework.
The ITIL Intermediate certifications are divided into two categories – Service Lifecycle and Service Capability.
Some may wish to concentrate on one set of modules, but you can choose to select modules from both the Service Lifecycle and Service Capability streams in order to combine management and technical knowledge.
The ITIL Intermediate certifications are available to anyone that has passed their ITIL Foundation exam. It is recommended that you have prior exposure to basic concepts in IT and at least two years’ professional experience working in IT Service Management before undertaking any of the ITIL Intermediary modules.
