Seven Guiding Principles of ITIL4 [with Infographic]

ITIL 4 is a major overhaul to the entire framework and the biggest change since ITIL v3 was published in 2007. ITIL 4 offers a more agile, flexible and customizable version of ITIL that is updated for the modern workplace. ITIL 4 encourages less siloes, more collaboration, communication across the entire business and integrating Agile, DevOps, Lean, IT governance and leadership into ITSM strategies.

  1. Start Where You Are
  2. Keep it Simple and Practical
  3. Optimize and Automate
  4. Progress Iteratively with Feedback
