Please join the itSMF USA Nations Capital Local Interest Group for our next meeting hosted by MITRE Corporation that will include an Overview Presentation and Discussion on ITIL® 4 from Marcel Foederer, one of the ITIL® 4 Architects that has been heavily involved with Axelos in the development of ITIL® 4.


ITIL® 4 is built on the established core of best practice in the ITIL® guidance. ITIL® 4 provides a practical and flexible approach to move to the new world of digital transformation and embrace an end-to-end operating model for the delivery and operation of products and services. ITIL® 4 also provides a holistic end-to-end picture that integrates frameworks such as Lean IT, Agile, and DevOps.


Marcel’s ITIL 4 Overview will help attendees understand the key concepts of the ITIL® 4 service management framework and to prepare for the transition to ITIL® 4 within their organizations. Discussion will include


  • The triggers for ITIL 4

  • Key questions CIOs are asking nowadays

  • Why ITIL 4 is moving away from the Lifecycle approach

  • Explaining briefly the Service Value System and Value Chain activities

  • The Qualification scheme in ITIL 4
