The APMG ASL®2 Interactive Mind Map

The Application Services Library 2 (ASL®2) study guide mind map provides an overview of ASL®2, focusing on its framework, processes, and implementation strategies. It details operational processes like incident and availability management, management processes such as planning, quality, and financial management, and strategic processes like applications cycle management and strategy. The map also includes best practices and case studies to aid in understanding and applying ASL®2 in application management.

The APMG ASL®2 Syllabus

The document was created with training companies in mind, so-called Accredited Training Organizations (ATOs). It provides information on the scope of ASL®2 exams, thereby allowing for the design of training and training materials following the requirements of APMG so that the training and materials fully prepare candidates for Foundation and Practitioner exams.

Why should I read the APMG ASL®2 Syllabus?

So what value does this provide for you? By reading the teaching syllabus, you will learn about the scope of ASL®2 exam questions for ASL®2 Foundation, and thus, which topics (and to what extent) from the official ASL®2 Handbook are covered in the exams, and which are not. For example, not everyone knows that the Foundation exam does NOT cover the entire textbook.

ASL®2 framework A3 poster variant #1 (clean design version)

The ASL┬«2 (Application Services Library 2) framework A3 poster, outlines a comprehensive structure for managing application services within an organization. I made this poster in vector format, a default A3 page size, so it can be easily printed and scaled as needed. Version #1 has a “cleaner” design, without background images.

Quality is a habit (Aristotle)

A habit backed by 20 years as a trainer and 15 years as an Enterprise Agile Transformation Leader

"Some exam simulators, those lacking explanations to questions and answers, one could say that they test our intellect in an intriguing way ­čśÄ, interpreting the principle: "No Feedback, No Learning". Learning is based largely on feedback. Here is the irony, some simulators, both free and paid, do not provide any feedback whatsoever.ÔÇŁ

Paulo CoelhoWhen he was preparing for the ASL®2 exam

After over 20 years in IT and personally clearing more than 200 certifications in IT, InfoSec, management, coaching, mentoring, and training, 15 of which have been in Agile Transformations, Agile Leadership and Governance, and more than 10 years as an Accredited ASL┬«2, BiSL┬«, MoP┬«, MSP┬«, PRINCE2┬«, PRINCE2 Agile┬«, M_o_R┬«, OBASHI┬«, P3O┬«, ITIL┬« trainer, it’s time to give something back to the community. Just as many great people helped me along the way, I want to contribute to the community, because the truth is that none of it matters if you donÔÇÖt share and help others.

ASL BiSL Foundation Ambassador Poland

ASL BiSL Foundation Ambassador logo

As an ASL BiSL Foundation Ambassador, I helped organizations in Poland to build awareness of the importance of business information management (BIM) as the missing link in IT service management.

As the official Ambassador of the Foundation, I was responsible for the translations and some marketing materials regarding ASL®2 and BiSL® standards.

Don't be fooled by ASL®2 exam dumps

I hope you will find my exam simulator valuable on your journey. The simulator is not just a tool to help you pass your upcoming ASL┬«2 Foundation exam, but also to learn and understand the knowledge areas associated with the specific domain you are studying. Passing an exam shouldn’t be the ultimate goal in itself but rather a checkpoint in your never-ending self-development journey. The goal of the ASL┬«2┬áExam Simulator is to provide you with as much learning feedback as possible, so you won’t waste your time memorizing questionable ASL┬«2 exam dumps or shady ASL┬«2 question databases with no prior verification of correct answers and with no rationals to questions.
