Developing a Training Needs Analysis

Train The trainers

All organizations of a certain maturity need to define their training plan and build a calendar. This needs them to define their learning objectives, the first step for which is to use training needs analysis methods to evaluate their actual need. It could be done in-house or they can hire an external consultant to provide training needs analysis services. The module below will help you become self-sufficient in conducting analysis in-house. Equipped with the right tools, the HR or Learning & Development department is in the best possible position to do a thorough analysis to come up with the best plan for one’s organization.
The right training at the right time can make a huge difference in the productivity and profitability of your organization. Whether you are scanning your workplace for opportunities to make things better and training is the answer, or a client asks you to come into their organization and do an assessment, your answer is best framed in the form of a training needs analysis. Your ability to create an analysis that is comprehensive yet simply prepared is critical for it to be understood and acted upon. This one-day workshop will help you to gather the information, assess the data, and present your suggestions for training or non-training solutions.

This one-day workshop will help you teach participants how to:

  • Understand the value of creating a training needs analysis
  • Apply the ICE method to assess the situation and build a training needs analysis
  • Create a simple yet thorough training needs analysis for their organization or client
