Hi,

I am new to ITIL and this forum.I recently attended ITIL v3 Foundation training at my office and appeared for the exam.I scored 36/40 in the exam.

I primarily work in the technical & application management areas(Java,J2ee,ecm etc).

I would like someone to advice me as to which ITIL exam can I take up next

I am primarily interested in management aspects such as project management,strategy etc

Thanks

Have you heard of Google ?
Try doing a search on Google for ITIL Certification

This will give you the path for the courses for the intermediate / and the final bunch of courses

Note: The rest of the courses / exams are classroom only - virtual or physical and not self study

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.

I would start looking into ITIL V4 exams. After all V3 is all but gone in a couple of years.

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.

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.

Hi,

I just passed my PMP Exam last month and it feels good :D

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.

Good luck..
