Loyalist Certification Services (LCS) announces the release of a new Qualification in Process Design. This has been developed in conjunction with leading industry experts and is the fourth complementary qualification for the ITIL Qualification Scheme.
LCS recognized there are many process frameworks which define best practices for achieving quality service management including ITIL etc. While each describes a set of integrated processes and controls, none provided step-by-step methods and techniques for actually designing, re-engineering and/or improving those processes. Certified Process Design Engineer (CPDE) has been developed to fill this gap. The knowledge obtained applies to every Service Management framework, standard and maturity model.
Director of Loyalist Certification Services, Julia Chapelle says, " This certification represents an area of knowledge that was previously under serviced with what the market had in existence. The demand for prescriptive, hands on learning and a certification that recognizes that value of the Process Design Engineer within an organization has finally been fulfilled".
The CPDE qualification is fully developed, tested and is currently offered through training organizations that have been Accredited by Loyalist Certification Services. It is anticipated that the market will continue to embrace this and all training companies are welcome to apply for accreditation.
Richard Pharro, CEO of APM Group said, "The APM Group is pleased to endorse this high calibre new certification for credit towards the official ITIL Qualification scheme".
Those undertaking the CPDE Qualification will benefit from:
