Training Needs Assessment: Something Borrowed, Something New
Training needs assessment is an essential component of the training design and delivery cycle. A thorough understanding of organizational needs equips us to design and deliver effective training, which in turn leads to improved individual and organizational performance that addresses those needs.. A top-notch needs assessment sets participants, organizations, and trainers up for success.
Dr. David Kopp will take you through the processes and outcomes of training needs assessment. His presentation includes discussions on the overall purpose of training assessment and preparation required to conduct needs assessments. He will guide you through the traditional and new approaches to training needs assessment, both at the individual and organizational levels.
