One of the most common requests from the training room is to see the full V3 life cycle in one diagram.
Since the life cycle consists of more than 20 processes and includes 5 different stages, this is quite a question, but it is done.

Establish management of the resources needed to deliver the services needed to support the business. Follow the color coding in the Revision Guide to view all elements of Service Strategy as they appear throughout the lifecycle.
Service Design – realizing the strategy into a design solution. Covering the need to manage Service Level Agreements (Service Level Management); provide detailed information about the services offered (the service catalog); measures and management for availability and capacity; development of IT service continuity, information security; relationship management with suppliers in Supplier Management.

Service transition – the delivery of the service design in the operational environment and live production. Including some key processes that span the entire life cycle, transition is an important phase. Here you will find processes such as Change Management, Service Asset and Configuration Management, which are used throughout the entire life cycle. This phase also includes the important aspects of auditing for the release of new and changed services in the processes of release and deployment management, transition planning and support, service testing and verification and evaluation.

Service Production – This is where the company really sees the value of the service lifecycle. The operational processes are crucial for the business perception of the IT services provided. The processes that are dealt with in this phase of the life cycle are the solution processes of Event Management, Incident Management and Request Management and Problem Management. Included with these processes we also have access control – the operational process related to information security management.

Continuous Service Improvement – covers the entire framework and applies the principles of service improvement to all stages.
