Based upon my experience, here's my take on it:
The choice to undergo the evaluation process depends upon the leadership of the organization. Undergoing an evaluation prior to training is valuable in identifying training needs, so that the training can be effectively planned and carried out. For a failing organization which is trying to improve, the decision to be evaluated can be the catalyst for action to save it. However, for a failing organization which does not wish to improve, it is most likely that leadership would choose not to be evaluated; this is true of organizations which are corrupt, and attempt to conceal their weaknesses from employees, stockholders, and consumers. Whether findings are a good or bad occurrence is dependent upon the mindset of the organization's leadership. For an organization which is trying to improve, the findings can become the basis for planning improvements. Organizations which choose to be evaluated prior to training can also benefit from a follow-up evaluation, so that the effectiveness of the training can be properly gauged.
I hope this is helpful.
