MOF. I call it ITIL-lite. Same idea of a set of best practices but without the increasing complexity of ITIL. You can get a copy at the Microsoft Web site.” I thanked him but remained skeptical.

I went to www.microsoft.com and typed Operations Framework in the search box.

ITIL is a transformation rather than an implementation. I.e. the cultural change of the people is the ultimate objective and the most important part.
