    Technical Manager at Hoang Vi Corp. After training course completed, I realized that the majority of small and medium businesses in Vietnam was not applied ITIL or did not understood about the concept of service. The guideline from training course help make it be sorted, be arranged place and right area. And when need, we just lost a little time to found it. Still 3 short days but helped us "professional" in mind, as well as how to communicate with other departments in the company to make the service better.

    Before participating in the training, I do not quite understand ITIL, ITSM. When completed the training course I just only understand 20%. However 20% of this would be a prerequisite for the other knowledges. Three days involved to learn so rewarding.
