Why would the corporation spend the funds to provide training if they didn't want the training to be followed? Good question.

Sometimes a corporation can become so large, it appears to lose its grasp on reality and definitely loses perspective as to the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing. Somebody launches a particularly good campaign, a vice president's relative, which demonstrates corporate training for their employees is required for the continued growth of the company.

Nobody has the guts or forethought to question how the company became so large and successful with their employees' current training. In any event the idea is adopted and someone is placed in charge of its execution. The problem arises when the party(s) creating and implementing the corporate training develop a program which fits their idea of what the company is about, not the reality of what it really is.

On a scale of 1 to 10 in this scenario corporate training is absolutely a 10.
