  1. in times of money trouble i think the last thing is an ballooning ITIL implantation effort with no tangible results.

    did you see the tools for ITIL on
    the prices are nuts!

    Microsoft MOF is cheaper and faster to get off the ground than ITIL

  2. Thank you for your comment,

    There are many ways to implement ITIL, some can be inexpensive, and provide immediate cost savings, and as you state, many failed and ballooning ones are pricey and provide no results at all.

    The key, like using any framework, is to implement at the right level, with a managed scope, and with the right ROI. In times of money trouble, using standards to fix, or enhance bulky and inefficient processes may be exactly what is needed; specifically, creating more flow-through and automation can help many organizations.
