Change control killed the sysadmin star


Yesterday, I've watched Office Space for the first time in probably 10 years. I can't believe how this movie is still relevant today. What's most funny is that one of the center pieces of this movie, TPS reports, is the type of report I have to file sometimes. Even if the movie's underlying themes have not aged much, there is one thing that Mike Judge would have to consider if he had to direct a reboot (pun intended) of Office Space 2015: change control.

I could go on and on about change control but I won't. However, I can leave you with this song:

Red tape came and broke your heart
We can't approve you've gone too far
Change control killed the sysadmin star

totally agreed... you might want to read why "ITIL is 'not failing'" in Greg Ferro's email. Sums it up pretty well.
