The Friday Funny – failing to take account of evaluative information

We’re not sure if this is a metaphor for individuals or organizations that don’t take account of evaluative information. What do you think?

    Looks like some of the evaluation tools I’ve been required to implement: “We don’t care if it fits your site. You have to implement it exactly the way we show you.” And indeed, the only way to make them feasible at all is to break them.

    I see – this is actually canine adaptation of tools to suit complex local ecologies!

    I thought it looked like an evaluator trying all kinds of ways to jam the FINDINGS down the throat of the disinterested organization. Push… nooo, pull……..nooooo, darn, well just jam HALF the findings down then. Forget the whole picture.
    Great – thanks.

    Or maybe it’s someone trying to apply evidence-based best practice (“bread is good to eat in bed”) without taking account of local contexts (a baguette is different to a slice of bread).

    Reminds me of the big difference a word can make that was shown in the post from last year’s Melbourne Comedy Festival where a banana was confused with a bandana. http://genuineevaluation.com/the-friday-funny-clearly-communicating-technical-terms/
