Training Needs Analysis

“Why there is no improvement after we send them for training? I don’t need to attend this program, I already have the knowledge and skills. I don’t know why I’m here in this class, my boss told me to attend.” Sound familiar? We hear this comments or feedback, often. Why? In many cases, this is because we did not do a proper needs analysis. As a result, we fail to identify who needs what and when.

Training Needs Analysis (TNA) is the process of identifying the gap between employee training and needs of training. Training needs analysis is the first stage in the training process and involves a procedure to determine whether training will indeed address the problem which has been identified. Training can be described as “the acquisition of skills, concepts or attitudes that result in improved performance within the job environment”. Training needs analysis looks at each aspect of an operational domain so that the initial skills, concepts and attitudes of the human elements of a system can be effectively identified and appropriate training can be specified.

In a nutshell, participants will learn about the value of TNA process and how this process will help them identify the right development or intervention in building the right talent and skills.

At the end of the two-days program, the participants will be able to:-

  1. Discuss the value of TNA to the individual, division and organization
  2. Identify the requirements of the  target group
  3. Apply the strategies for determining training needs
  4. Make decisions in accordance with TNA information
  5. Link training needs to the design and development of training courses and program
