The five publications are: • • • • • ITIL® Service Strategy ITIL® Service Design ITIL® Service Transition ITIL® Service Operation ITIL® Continual Service Improvement Each publication addresses the necessary capabilities of the service provider and enables the customer’s objectives to be achieved from the perspective of one of the lifecycle stages.
Combining these perspectives provide a holistic and comprehensive solution for IT service Delivery. Service Strategy The foundation of the service lifecycle is Service Strategy.
Within this stage, the value of a service to the customer is created and developed to align the service provider’s IT capabilities with the business needs of the customer, including ensuring that the organizational structure of the service provider best suits this alignment.
Through Service Strategy, one can develop a sense of service management as an organization capability and a strategic asset. Service Strategy explores the development of market spaces, the differences between internal and external service providers, service assets, the service portfolio, and how Service Strategy influences the other stages of the service lifecycle.
From a process perspective, Service Strategy focuses on building and managing the relationship between the service provider and customer and on ensuring that all service requirements are identified, documented, prioritized, and planned into service delivery.

Throughout Service Design, guidance is provided on the components of Service Design, how they are constructed, and the best approach for development of those components.
Service Design is about putting the strategies of service delivery into a viable and effective plan.
The Service Design stage can be useful for ensuring services with new requirements, changed requirements, or simple improvements remain aligned with the Service Strategy. Some of the main topics of Service Design are: • • • • • • • Coordinating design activities Managing capacity Managing availability Establishing service levels Defining service continuity plans Controlling information security Managing suppliers Service Transition While the Service Design stage creates plans for how the service should be delivered, the Service Transition stage is responsible for developing and integrating the service components into the existing environment.
The guidelines for this activity are the detailed plans documented in the Service Design package.
In addition to the building and deployment of services assets, Service Transition is also responsible for managing organizational change, ensuring that the organization is ready and is accepting the new or changed service.
