How to Conduct a Training Needs Assessment

What is a Training Needs Assessment (TNA)?

Today’s workplace is fast-paced and demanding. Not everybody is willing to invest time in conducting a needs assessment; however, the practice is critical for enhancing workplace performance. Many businesses make assumptions of what their training needs are and how to conduct a training needs assessment.

This can have a significant impact on the success of training efforts because actions may address a symptom but not the real problem to be solved.

A workforce TNA is a way to collect information and to analyze the depth and scope of a problem. Assessments of a problem don’t have to belong or be intensive. If the issue is the rollout or change of a system or new job, the TNA can be reasonably quick. If there is evidence of a problem but no defined solution, or previous solutions have not presented satisfactory results, a longer look at other systemic factors may be required.

eLearning Company Insight: How has eLearning Evolved?

When eLearning started to be used in regular commercial businesses about 30 years ago, the only companies that could afford to create and sustain this new learning format were very large organizations. There was an argument for about 20 of those years about whether or not eLearning was as effective in training employees as face-to-face training. (Short answer, yes!)

Nevertheless, most organizations had a tough time justifying the expense of time, effort, and money that it took to create courses that inevitably had to be updated or fully changed because of changes in the organization or content.

Developing Leaders for the “New Normal”

 

As we enter the second stage of work transformation as a result of global disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses and leaders need to start really thinking about what they will do to develop leaders in this ‘new normal.' What had been previously seen and expected in leadership and management practices must be adjusted, re-learned, or tossed to better fit the working and living conditions we have today. New leadership needs to focus on how to lead a distributed workforce, how to appreciate and capitalize on new global opportunities, and how to lead with human capital leadership skills (empathy, emotional intelligence, and autonomy management).
