ITIL® 4 Specialist: High Velocity IT (HVIT)

The ITIL® 4 Specialist: High Velocity IT (HVIT) certification is one of the 4 modules leading to the ITIL Managing Professional qualification. ITIL 4 HVIT addresses the specifics of digital transformation and helps organisations to evolve towards a convergence of business and technology, or to establish a new digital organisation.

The ITIL 4 Managing Professional (MP) Qualification

In the new ITIL® 4 scheme there are two high-level “stream” qualifications – ITIL Managing Professional (MP) stream and ITIL Strategic Leader (SL) stream.

The ITIL Managing Professional stream targets IT practitioners working within technology and digital teams across businesses and provides practical and technical knowledge about how to run successful IT-enabled services, teams and workflows. It comprises of 3 specialist modules and 1 strategist module:

  • ITIL 4 Specialist – Create, Deliver & Support
  • ITIL 4 Specialist – Drive Stakeholder Value
  • ITIL 4 Specialist – High Velocity IT
  • ITIL 4 Strategist – Direct, Plan & Improve

You can get a good and quick idea of the new ITIL 4 Certification Scheme in the diagram below. To obtain the ITIL Managing Professional (MP) or ITIL Strategic Leader (SL) designations you must complete all modules in each stream, with ITIL Strategist being a common module for both streams.
