COBIT 5 brings a governance layer to ITIL, placing measurement metrics and controls to ensure that process practitioners or IT staff are using the adapted framework as intended.

In the end, it does not matter how aligned or mature a process is. It will always be of little value, if it is not being used by its target audience.
