COBIT V4.1 has an interesting example to show the linkage between performance metrics and goals.

The example is from DS5 Ensure Systems Security and the business goal is to maintain enterprise reputation and leadership.

The measure is the number of incidents causing public embarrassment.

Now , is my mind wandering or am I the only person who sees the funny side or the not so manifest implications of this measurement?

I told my psychiatrist that everyone hates me. He said I was being ridiculous – everyone hasn’t met me yet.

Oh, well, reading COBIT can be an inescapable chore and it’s a relief to find something that tickles my funny bone, even if unintentionally!

Have a nice day!

PS: The picture of Stosur is just to jazz up this very dry post!
