Required Exams

ITIL Strategist: Direct, Plan and Improve

Upon completion of ITIL Foundation and the three Specialist and one Strategist modules, you will be certified as an ITIL Managing Professional (MP).


Exam Structure

  • 40 questions
  • Multiple choice
  • 28 out of 40 marks required to pass (70%)
  • 90 minutes
  • Closed book


Part 1: The in-class assessment

During class, students form small teams, complete a series of four activities, and deliver presentations (three of the activities are 60 minutes in length, and one is 90 minutes) based on a case study; and the content delivered in class. Your instructor grades the presentations and will look for things like completeness of the team’s response, quality of the content presented, etc. Students have the opportunity to earn up to 40 points across the four activities and need 30 points (or 75%) to pass the assessment section of the class. Students have to pass the in-class practical assignments to be able to sit for the exam.


Part 2: The multiple-choice exam

The DITS exam includes 30 multiple-choice questions, and students are given 60 minutes to complete the exam. To pass, you need to get 21 out of 30 questions (or 70%) correct. If you pass both parts – the in-class practical assignments and the exam – you will earn the “ITIL 4 Leader: Digital and IT Strategy” designation. If you already hold the “ITIL 4: Direct, Plan, and Improve” certification, you will then earn a second designation, that of “ITIL 4 Strategic Leader.”
