The intent of the Managing across the Lifecycle (MALC) qualification is to give delegates the skills to support an organization's service delivery by bridging the service lifecycle stages. The qualification demonstrates that delegates have learned the value of one combined service management practice as opposed to separate subject areas. ITIL processes and practices, as learnt from the lifecycle and capability streams of the intermediate certificates, are put into a context of delivering this value.

Target Audience:

• Individuals who require a business and management level understanding of the ITIL service lifecycle and how it may be implemented to enhance the quality of IT service provision within an organization

• Individuals seeking the ITIL Expert in IT Service Management certificate, for which this qualification is the final mandatory module

• Individuals seeking progress towards the ITIL Master in IT Service Management, for which the ITIL Expert in IT Service Management certificate is a prerequisite
