Dear HR, Training and L&D teams,
Assessing if the NEED of our Training Program is correctly identified
Yes, we know the need is there, that’s why the TNA was done in advance. But my question is what if the TNA that you have done was correct at that point of time, but did not serve the needs later on.
So here are some assessment points for you as a HR, Training and L&D person to think about.
1. Was a need assessment conducted again before the training program is to start its course of work (looking for trainers, thinking of the contents, rethinking of policies that can change after the program, etc)
2. Were performance indicators (training effectiveness methods) established? If so how were they established and who was involved? (is this quantitative and qualitative data?)
3. Will your training content you intend to do, be fitted towards the current ‘learning maturity growth’ of your employees? (maybe its too basic or maybe its to advance)
Tools to use for you to constantly think on your Training Programs:
