There are other certification bodies that you could investigate if you wanted to learn more about project management. One is (somewhat surprisingly) called the Project Management Institute. I believe thier credentials are quite well regarded. _________________ DYbeach

Save your time and money. An ITIL V3 Foundation certificate is all you will ever need. In fact I suggest that you waltz into your CEO's office and demand a healthy pay-rise due to this highly sought after certificate.
If he asks for some justification, just use some of your new-found ITIL terminology to dazzle and confound him/her.

I am primarily interested in management aspects such as project management,strategy etc
Since ITIL is exclusively about IT service management, I rather suspect that all ITIL exams concern "management aspects", but it will barely touch project management and, while it will underpin strategy management, I doubt if much of it will directly teach you about strategy management as I understand the term. _________________ "Method goes far to prevent trouble in business: for it makes the task easy, hinders confusion, saves abundance of time, and instructs those that have business depending, both what to do and what to hope."

Try Prince 2 for Project Management its what all our PM's have to have under their belts... any tips for revising I am bored of listening to the same voice on the E learning course my company gave me...
I just passed my PMP Exam last month and it feels good
If you want to learn about Project Management i would strongly suggest you to take PMP.
Between PMP or Prince2 is actually depends on your targeted company or career for the future. There are countries or companies that values one after the other. From what i read, PMP is more hard compare to Prince2. I can't tell for Prince2, but passing PMP is not something you can do with just a few days prep.
