in

The UK Office for Government Commerce (OGC) has published several ITIL V3 Alignment and Technical White papers on cross-referencing the ITIL methodology with several IT frameworks (TOGAF, MOF, COBIT) and ISO/IEC 20000 and 27000 standards. The following documents available at http://www.best-management-practice.com provide a number of management paradigms that have proven to be essential for implementing and sharing IT Service Management Best Practice.
