I love the theme music at the start/end.

The IT skeptic rant about using "governance" seems to be that "management" should typically be used instead. I did this too - until I saw Rob rant on this.

See "IT Governance vs. Corporate Governance vs. IT Management" - http://servicexen.wordpress.com/2008/06/01/it-governance-vs-corporate-governance-vs-it-management/

and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporate_governance_of_information_technology

Metrics/KPI - too many is bad, of course as they forest is hidden by the trees. Metrics/kpi need to be different based on the audience. What may be needed to manage the technology is not appropriate for other stakeholders. Identifying and Acting Upon the Elusive “Critical Few”
is I think what you want to get to - these are key concepts in Balanced Score Card, Six Sigma and other improvement frameworks - http://www.fastcompany.com/blog/shawn-graham/mutual-attraction/identifying-and-acting-upon-elusive-critical-few
