ITIL Strategic Leader - ITIL 4

ITIL Strategic Leader (ITIL SL) is a stream of two modules that are part of ITIL 4, the next evolution of ITIL. ITIL SL is due to be released in the second half of 2019.

The two modules are:

  • ITIL Strategist Direct Plan and Improve
  • ITIL Leader Digital and IT Strategy.

ITIL Strategic Leader (ITIL SL) recognizes the value of ITIL, not just for IT operations, but for all digitally-enabled services. Becoming an ITIL Strategic Leader (ITIL SL) demonstrates that the individual has a clear understanding of how IT influences and directs business strategy.

To obtain the designation ITIL Managing Professional or ITIL Strategic Leader, the candidate must complete all modules in each stream, with ITIL Strategist being a universal module for both streams.
