BBC Worldwide to use TV comedies to train UK managers

Many
companies have been accused of having a laugh with wild and wacky training
ideas, but a new course is designed to do just that.

New
training from BBC Worldwide is using archive footage from some of the
corporation’s comedy classics to improve the skills of UK managers.

Management
Essentials uses clips from TV programmes, including the Fast Show and Are You
Being Served?, to help managers focus on developing staff, improving business
performance and running an effective operation.

The
course, produced in conjunction with the National Extension College, uses the comedies
as exaggerated examples of poor management in the workplace.

Trainees
can learn at their own pace using computers, videos and books to work through
the programme.
