CPDE - Certified Process Design Engineer (CPDE)

There are many frameworks and standards that define best practices for achieving quality IT service management (ITSM) – ITIL, ISO/IEC 20000, COBIT, CMMI, DevOps, Knowledge-Centered Support, etc. While each describes processes and controls (what to do), none provide clear, step-by-step methods and techniques for actually designing, reengineering and improving processes (how to do it).

The Certified Process Design Engineer (CPDE)® certification course teaches how to (re)engineer and improve quality, lasting IT Service Management (ITSM) processes. This highly-interactive course provides hands-on opportunities to analyze, design, measure and integrate ITSM processes. The knowledge obtained in this course applies to every Service Management framework, standard and maturity model.
