AXELOS - new name of the joint venture managing ITIL and PRINCE2 certifications

As we mentioned in a previous post, Capita plc and Government Office created a new joint venture to promote and manage ITIL® and PRINCE2® certifications.
On 1st July 2013 the joint venture has been launched under the new name - AXELOS.
CEO of AXELOS is Peter Hepworth who came from Activision Blizzard (Call of Duty, anyone?).
AXELOS will be the owner of the intellectual property of the Best Management Practice portfolio. It will manage licensing schemes, accreditation and support of examination institutes, training organisations, and consulting organisations.
Have a look at the official press release.
A few less known curiosities:
  • On average one ITIL exam is taken every 1.5 minutes.
  • ITIL exams are available in 21 languages in over 150 countries worldwide.

Let us all hope these latest development will turn out for the best of international IT Service Management community.

UPDATE: Axelos shows first signs of life. Have a look at, first strategy hints and some nice market research figures there.
