Proactive processes

  • Problem Management

    • Systems administration
    • Storage management
    • Directory services management
    • Print and output management
    • Performance and monitoring
    • Preventative maintenance

    • Capacity planning
    • Availability management
    • Energy conservation

Change processes

  • Change Management

    • Release management
    • Patch management
  • Configuration management

Strategic processes

  • Service level management
    • Service level management
    • Financial management
  • Workforce management
  • Senior leadership team

Whilst the FITS processes are presented separately they are most effectively implemented in a structured way. We aim to advise you on how to implement these processes in a controlled and successful manner, acknowledging the fact that you are likely to have limited resources. We therefore recommend that you read Approach to implementing FITS and Implementation of FITS before starting.

    Dear Sir/Madam.
    I’m looking at developing the skills and experience of a number of School IT Technicians in London and Kent.
    Can you let me know :-
    a) When there are any public courses scheduled ?
    b) What the costs would be for 7-8 attendees ?
    c) How long the course is ?

    thanks in advance,

"... Indeed I do see FITS as an adapted for education variation of ITIL, as the industry standard (ITIL) is quite hard to implement "by the book" in an educational organization"
- Todor Kotsev - ICT Services Manager/ITIL Service Designer

“… absolutely perfect content for our current IT environment. Extremely relevant.” “… George was a brilliant presenter. If we were to have any further training we would like to request him."
