If you are going to tell a whopper, make it a big one

Mallard is perhaps the best exponent of "telling the big lie".

Remember the American Bag men?

Now we have a Training programme that Mallard claims that a recent 'evaluation found it worked well – both in terms of training and also by giving firms good opportunities to network with each other'.

Slight problem or make that problems . The evaluation actually found that;

  • There was a lack of data for a thorough evaluation.
  • There was inadequate research to prove efficacy of the programme.
  • The impact of training on clients was not measured.
  • There was no standardised approach to assessment of providers.
  • There were no learning outcomes specified for participants.
  • There were a high number of no-shows of participants booked on courses – mainly due to zero cost.
  • A claim that the spill over into private training was unknown – this is one objective of the programme.
  • And a claim that the programme does not crowd out private providers despite one provider's comment and independent research to the contrary.

Outstanding Mallard, real outstanding. How can we ever believe anything that ever utters from your mouth.
