Who are the mysterious ITIL Qualifications Board?
Readers may vaguely be aware of an "ITIL Qualifications Board" but who knows anything about it? Who is on it? When does it meet? What is its charter? Where are the records? How much does it impact my life in ITSM?
Announcements appear from the ITIL Qualifications Board, such as one we discussed recently
Public information about its membership or activities is hard to come by, even though this body is setting public policy of property of the British Crown, and is determining the requirements for career certification for the entire ITSM community.
BCS at least tells us that the ITIL Qualifications Board consists " of representatives of the accreditor, examining institutes, itSMF, TSO and examiners", which is more than I can find anywhere else, including the ITIL Official Site
There is an Examination Panel which makes recommendations to the Board. It's membership is on the Official Site and we discussed it recently. But it is not the Board.
Contributions are welcomed from readers to help draw back the veils on this body. Post comments here or email me privately.
