Training Needs Analysis Program

Training Needs Analysis Program Overview

Analysis of the performance gap indicates a need for a learning intervention. Great, but where do you start? What will it look like? Who needs it? When do they need it? How will it be delivered? Who will be needed to develop and deliver the learning initiatives? This program provides a structured process to identify and prioritize corporate learning needs.

“Excellent. I highly recommend this to my colleagues, peers and leaders”
