Enterprise and IT Standards
9:11am - 19/Jan/2016

I know and like standards and mostly follow them.  So the standards that I follow include:  ITIL, COBIT 5, TOGAF, ODATA, CMM, standards of other professional bodies including:  ISACA, ACM, Microsoft and PMI.   There are of course many others that I use when required.  I find standards are like ‘muscle memory’.  When I run I don’t want to have to look at each step and calculate current pace, elevation, footing conditions, knee bend, leg cycle time, air, heart rate, gain and loss since last step, etc.  I want to think about the goal and relative position not the steps.  Standards become part of every project and/or activity just as to run and race requires making tracks and steps.  So I mostly follow them; and try to make conscious decisions when I don’t.  I even document these decisions in order to make them down stream standards.  I find litigation helps in doing this.  Of course everyone likes their own standards best.
