BOKKED™: The IT Skeptic's Body Of Knowledge Known Error Database

This database holds known errors in Body of Knowledge (BOK) publications such as ITIL®, COBIT, ISO20000... The purpose is to:

  • provide a public reference
  • allow public debate
  • feed back to the BOK owners

If your requirement is solely to notify OGC/TSO of an error in a book, you can use the official "Change Control System".

We do NOT track errors in websites, white papers and other ephemera; only published books and documents. Note that we take a fairly broad interpretation of 'error' to include such things as inconsistencies between BOK (eg ITIL differs from COBIT) because tracking these will be useful. Please do not make it any wider: the fact that you do not agree is not an error.

Use of this database is subject to the terms and conditions of the IT Skeptic website
