The needs analysis is usually the first step taken to cause a change. This is mainly because a needs analysis specifically defines the gap between the current and the desired individual and organizational performances.
A needs analysis often reveals the need forwell-targeted training areas. However, we must keep in mind that training is not always the best way to try to close a particular gap between an organization’s goals and its actual performance. We, with the help of our competent trainers, help our esteemed clients get a clear idea of the problem, look at all possible remedies and report on the findings to management before deciding on the best solution.
The reasons for conducting a training needs analysis are
- To determine whether training is needed
- To determine causes of poor performance
- To determine content and scope of training
- To determine desired training outcomes
- To provide a basis of measurement
- To gain management support
