How have you been involved with the industry? At Pink, we've contributed more to ITIL than anyone else. We are weaved very tightly into ITIL's rich 20 year history. And, we're proud of many firsts; here are just a few of our many, many contributions:
  • It is a recognized fact in the industry that Pink started the ITIL revolution
  • Pink developed and delivered the very first Foundation Course. It was because of us that Foundation Level certification became an industry standard
  • Pink developed and delivered the very first IT Service Manager Course
  • The Practitioner Courses (now the Intermediate Courses) were introduced into the ITIL certification scheme because of Pink's initiative to offer courses outside of the official certification program that grouped together key interdependent processes
  • Pink introduced an ITIL tool certification program for vendors to provide practitioners with an unbiased and “official” view of ITIL
    compatible tools (PinkVERIFYTM)
  • Over the years, Pink has written and contributed to all versions of ITIL books, including the new V3 Continual Service Improvement book
  • Every year for the past 19, Pink presents the world's largest, and best, ITIL focused conference providing the industry with a showcase for ITSM and business best practices
