Elements Of A Training Needs Analysis

Elements Of A Training Needs Analysis

Consider training programs that you have taken in the past. Did the skills that you learned benefit your organization? Did they help you do a better job? Did you even take anything beneficial away from the training at all? A training needs analysis can help your participants answer “yes” to all of these questions, and make sure that their time (and their organization’s money) is well spent.

This course covers all the essential elements of a training needs analysis. The first step is using the ICE method to isolate problems, consult with stakeholders, and evaluate your options. Then, you can bring all of the information together into a training needs analysis that will convince readers to take action.

After you complete this Developing a Training Needs Analysis course, you will be able to:

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