The Six Greatest Myths of All Time

In no particular order…


1. A London bus has been found in Antarctica.

2. Numerical targets don’t cause dysfunctional behaviour.

3. A World War Two bomber was once photographed on the moon.

4. League tables are a statistically robust method of comparing peers.

5. Binary comparisons are capable of telling you something useful.

6. The world will end on 21st December 2012.

(Sorry, I couldn’t resist it!)

About InspGuilfoyle

I am a serving Police Inspector and systems thinker. I am passionate about doing the right thing in policing. I have a big problem with numerical targets, unnecessary bureaucracy, and anything else that stops police officers from providing the best possible service. I believe that by adopting a systems approach, policing can be transformed beyond the wildest expectations of many.
