What on earth is a "techno-functional resource"?

It sounds as if it should have a serial number (R2D2 or HAL9000?)

Irrespective, the big advantage of doing ITIL SM v2 certification is that you will learn a lot about service management as an activity rather than as jargon.

1) Quite well regarded certification, exam format is a better test of knowledge than v3 multi-guess. Well established training courses (some of the v3 courses are still a bit new to trainers). Most companies focus on the v2 processes in the first year or two, especially the SS ones. When added to the v3 Managers bridge, the fastest and I believe easiest way to v3 Expert certification.
2) whenever they (APMG?) make an announcement plus 6 months. No such announcement has been made.
