ITIL4 Change Control

In many organizations, changes represent the single largest source of unplanned outages and customer-impacting incidents. At the same time, IT is increasingly criticized for its bureaucratic and slow review and approval processes. What’s a practitioner to do?

In this session, ITIL 4 Change Control Practice author Greg Sanker presents a capabilities approach to change control – focusing on the core capabilities needed, while shifting the focus to business outcomes rather than rigid processes. Learn all about:

* Scalable, adaptive approach to managing changes
* Focusing on change outcomes, not the process
* The five core capabilities of modern change control

Session includes a brief overview of what's new in ITIL4.
