Chris Barrett, Director, ITIL JV - AXELOS


A chance to hear of the plans and progress of the new the Best Management Practice portfolio Joint Venture between the Cabinet Office and Capita directly from the leaders of the new company - now called AXELOS.

And most importantly to ask questions and discuss ideas for the way forward from the SMSG membership viewpoint!

We expect to cover:

  • What is the role of the new company?
  • What are the aims?
  • What will happen to our certifications and qualifications?
  • Who are engaged in the process of change? Who do they consider as stakeholders?
  • What will the impact be to the independent consultant or trainer in terms of ability or price to use ITIL material?
  • Etc, etc....

There will be plenty of interaction and q&a time, so please come ready with any questions you have and also feel free to send in questions before the event to the Chairs’ email - bpscotty@yahoo.co.uk

This event is aimed at the widest range of IT and Business professionals to ensure grass roots participation and engagement for the benefit of ITSM

The SMSG always aim to record the audio and publish the slides as PDF on our website after the event.

We are looking to trial stream the event as well - details to follow, but currently only physical attendees can receive a CPD certificate.
