ITIL 4.0 with Lean & DevOps inside to be released at March, 12th

ITIL 4.0 is to be released officially on March, 12th. Meanwhile, the official ITIL 4.0 Foundation certification starts on February, 28th. A bit strange, but it’s marketing I suppose. My first class for ITIL 4.0 starts on March, 18th, while you can learn about integrating DevOps into ITSM lifecycle just now at my on-line course: https://www.udemy.com/better-it-service-management-using-devops-in-itsm/?couponCode=DEVOPS_ITSM_12

 

Product owner certification

The DevOps Agile skills association renewed the certification roadmap, and the 3rd tier (Leadership level) certifications are available now. I have passed the Product Owner certification one of the first, and want to share a brief experience about this prestigious certification.

The Product Owner role is a leading role to ensure the Product vision, roadmap and backlog, and finally the product value to a customer.

The DASA association actively drives training and certification activities in this area.

The PO certification exam includes 40 questions (in fact, not very complicated, especially if a candidate is good with Scrum and Agile). Each question is followed by 4 answer options, one of those is correct. 26 correct answers (65%) lead to success.

I passed the exam at the first attempt. It seems to me that the certification marks that junior PO is ready for his/her journey.

As any other certification it helps to structure candidate’s skills and practical experience.

 

ITIL – DevOps on-line course is updated with practical assignments

3 practical assignments are added to the course “ITIL and DevOps”.

Start-up teams, which deliver and support their products can learn how to implement the ITIL based IT service lifecycle by a single DevOps team.

Now each student can make his/her own exercises according to his/her IT organization specific features and discuss the case with the trainer at the course forum.

Join the training with a lifelong access for $9.99 only.
