Hi People,

I am pursuing my IT career forward with the ITIL certification, so now I wonder which book should I need to read in these collections:

ITIL Lifecycle Suite 2011

ITIL Service Strategy,
ITIL Service Design,
ITIL Service Transition,
ITIL Service Operation,

I am doing System ADministration in my current job so wondering which book should I pick up to be able to get ITIL in my work place.

Thanks.

As per myunderstanding, ITIL is a framework library  that contains lot of processes , procedures / functions that need to perform to get the maximum value out of IT service.

Now about your question : You cant read one book and implement ITIL in your organisation.

I will give you my example : When i was a sys admin we implemented a IT support ticketing system that was build using ITIL principles . The reason behind investing this kind of money was to build SLA's and track how many tickets are we getting / day / hour.... what kind of tickets and hows our staff performing to fix these tickets.

That also helped us to build SLA's and response times for the tickets raised and run the IT operations in a controlled but efficient environment.

It all depends on what kind of environment you are working in and what do you want to achieve by implementing ITIL

Hope I helped.

For your current job, Sys Admin, read ITIL Service Operation.  But start with the Foundation to get a grasp of the overall concept of ITIL as per previous advice.

You won't be able to "implement ITIL" on your own reagardless of how many books you read. You will need to have senior IT staff onboard just for a starter. ITIL Service Operation Book is just for you to get better at your job.
