Service Operation Continual Service Improvement Each one of the books, defines a set of processes such as IT Financial Management, Supplier Management, Change Management, Incident Management and Service Measurement and Reporting; a total of 23 processes are defined with a set of actions and roles required for each process. The definition of several of the processes and the subsequent roles is consistent with the IT Governance definition we used earlier; nevertheless a big amount of the defined processes such as event management and validation and testing, are much more focused on the management part than to that of the governance. That focus of ITIL to service delivery and management was more obvious in version 2, which did not address issues such as Risk Management, Performance Monitoring and IT Governance generic strategic direction and alignment at all. As such it was mostly perceived as a framework for service desk management.

With version 3, ITIL gained a broader scope than version 2 and added significant emphasis on business strategy. That change, led some IT management consultants to declare ITIL version 3 as inappropriate for helpdesk and service management processes Bruton,not strange since version 2 focused on processes while version 3 focuses on Business Value Harris et al, Beyond the "not strategic enough" type of criticism, ITIL has also been criticised as a flawed and uneven framework.
Dean Meyer identifies pitfalls in its implementation; nevertheless, he also states that it is an implementation issue and not a framework issue Meyer, - web site. ITIL has also been characterized as a too generic framework, which is not able to provide value if used off-the-shelf without significant adaptations Baschab and Piot,an unfair criticism as ITIL is promoted as a set of best practices, not as a complete, fits-all framework.
This concession should invalidate yet another criticism raised by Simonssonthe lack of a maturity model. Other criticisms include the stifling of the creativity of those who implement it, and that it becomes a goal by itself having a heavy administrative burden Addy, All these points are valid, but they can be attributed to the extension of ITIL.
CobIT defines processes and controls, and uses the grouping of activities in four domains: Plan and Organise Deliver and Support Monitor and Evaluate Each domain contains a set of processes, 34 at total, and each process defines specific controls, which sum up to for all processes.
CobIT defines inputs and outputs, as well as a maturity model for each process, making the control of compliance a very easy task. RACI responsible, accountable, consulted and informed charts are also provided, drawing a clear guideline on who should be involved in every process step.

Several consultants and practitioners criticise CobIT that it only states the obvious, that it is very high level, is only a generic framework and does not provide specific and repeatable implementation steps Culmsee, ; Toigo, Academics criticise CobIT as providing little support for improved decision making, although many metrics are defined Simonsson and Johnson, Others state that CobIT is expressed almost entirely in terms of process, focusing on how to govern but not what to govern Lee et al, Another criticism states that CobIT is significantly more focused on auditing, largely ignoring other aspects of governance such as software development and service delivery NetFrontiers, CobIT is also characterized as a framework that needs significant knowledge and know how for a successful implementation Simonsson et al,and that it takes time to introduce solid IT Governance through it Rogers, ; although the opposite would be strange, given the wide area of processes and functions that CobIT addresses.
Finally, while ITIL is known as the framework that guides you on how to get where you want to be, CobIT merely focuses on where you should be; that may be good or bad, depending on one's point of view and needs.
Thus, with the right frameworks or processes, complemented by the right behaviours, organisations are more likely to establish highly effective systems of governance.
After all, it has been stated that ITIL and CobIT are not mutually exclusive; they are rather complementary and organisations will probably benefit from a mixed approach, adopting what is more applicable in every case, from the two frameworks Chickowsky, cited at Bhattacharjya and Chang, As of the time of conducting this research, there is not enough information on the implementation, benefits or drawbacks of ISO As drivers, we consider the motivator factors, which may lead an organisation to the implementation of an IT Governance framework.
