I have been a bit disappointed with ISACA

I have been an ISACA member for a year and so far there has not been one single intresting item in all the mails, both e- and snailmail they have been sending (and they send a lot). It is an auditors community.

I agree with Marc that maybe we should band together and form a new group promoting clear & standardized methods and object of IT service management. We (well you) already have a great name, Real ITSM. We just need to change the content and the rules ;-)


the only horse worth backing is a winning one

You're hard to please :)

I don't give a toss about what they send out - though i have found stuff of interest in the mag, and anything is more than we get from itSMF - COBit is what i care about. And the governance, accessible IP, open collaboration (supposedly - we shall see), and international infrastructure of ISACA.

two old grumps are not going to achieve anything. the world is awash with pet frameworks from people (and organisations) who think "build it and they will come". the only horse worth backing is a winning one.
