Training is the HR function often taken for granted which leads to a flawed approach. As organizations have evolved, their needs are no longer the same. And so, problems cannot be solved with the same, old methods. Therefore, this guide focuses on adopting the right approach to designing a training program as per client need and specific job roles.
Need for training need assessment:
This e-book emphasizes on the importance of using training needs assessment to align your business goals with the training needs. Sales professionals, for instance, cannot simply educate potential buyers about products and services. They need to be trained to be thought leaders who can convince customers with valuable insights. In such a case, a random training program won’t work. This e-book helps you to modify your approach towards TNA so that your decisions are driven by data and insights instead of mere guesses.
Why does training need assessment?
The focus of these assessments is identifying gaps in skills at organizational, group and individual level. TNA should be conducted at all three levels to ensure maximum efficiency of training throughout the organization. A TNA will be able to identify the necessary level of skill or knowledge and the current level of the same. The e-book gives impetus to establishing these factors to bridge this gap. It also aids in building foundation of a training plan, provide baseline for training evaluation and ensuring that relevant training is delivered.
Features of a good training needs assessment:
This e-book further delves into three important aspects of training needs assessment. This includes setting context as per the business objective, defining the competencies required for specific job roles, evaluating the employees based on these competencies and understanding where the gap lies to identify which skills need to be worked on.
