a layman's view of COBIT and why you need to know about it. It may have started out as an audit tool but now COBIT is very much a general IT practices framework. There is no reason other than history why ITIL is the "default" choice as an IT framework. There are better ones around. In my consulting practice I use COBIT as my framework, and flesh it out with ITIL and other bodies of knowledge when necessary. I use COBIT to frame assessment, current state analysis, reviews, improvement planning, strategy, roles, and so on. It's better.
