Service Catalog Specialist™
The Service Catalogue plays a crucial role in IT service delivery because it serves as the access point to all products and services offered by IT or other departments. An effective service catalogue is a must-have business tool that can help build and nurture a positive relationship between the business units and IT.
A major benefit to building a comprehensive service catalogue is a reduction in costs. As products and services are examined and clearly defined to meet the business’ needs, this often leads to redesigning processes and restructuring resources that result in the standardization of supply and better operational control.
The savvy IT professional understands that a well-designed and efficiently implemented service catalogue can dramatically impact the business-IT relationship by building trust in the capabilities of IT to deliver the right products and services that the business needs in a timely manner at a reasonable cost. The service catalogue can also provide a foundation for planning and decision making, improved communication, and as a means for measuring performance.

This course enables participants to develop their knowledge and proficiency in the following Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA®) professional skills:
- SLMO: Service Level Management
- METL: Methods and Tools
This list gives the core SFIA skills covered by the course. Elements relevant to other SFIA skills may also be included to a lesser depth. Proficiency in a SFIA skill is measured by performance assessment and is achieved through actual substantial use of that skill in a real-world situation over some time. In course assignments and exercises undertaken through a course can demonstrate elements of the relevant skills which can then be further developed back in the workplace. Acquiring new skills and building on existing skills, ideally occurs within the context of an agreed development plan for each person that ensures that their personal circumstances, strengths and development needs are met.
An amazing instructor who explained the content very clearly and at a very good pace. This was a good balance and approach to learning in a three day intensive period. I found the worked examples very practical and very relatable to the Defence industry sector I work in.
Really good facilitation, kept me interested and shared so many practical applications.
Gave me a better understanding of concepts, theories and tools to formalise and improve my current relationship management.
The instructor was very professional and was able to explain each area thoroughly and is available for Q&A.
