Training Needs Analysis

GR - Team having a meeting

The best starting point is a Training Needs Analysis (TNA) to identify the knowledge gaps within an organisation or team. It provides information to enable the strategic planning of training to meet organisational objectives in both the short and long-term.

If your organisation has a modest budget, this process becomes more important because it helps to point out key focus areas and identify learning solutions which can give the best return on investment (ROI).

Sometimes a Training Needs Analysis also can reveal gaps that are not necessarily best met by formal learning and could be best served by implementing other solutions such as a buddy system, coaching or mentoring.

A Training Needs Analysis also provides a benchmark to measure your targeted training and mitigate the risk of training failure.

A Training Needs Analysis can be completed for different business units, teams, divisions or leadership levels, or can equally be completed at the organisation level, providing key insight and intelligence to bridge knowledge and performance gaps.

Glass Rock Solutions adds value to this process strategically and with the delivery to complete the process to uncover the ‘unseen’ mechanics of performance. As experts in neuroscience, neurolinguistics, building capability frameworks, training and profiling, we can make recommendations so that organisations can also address mindset, behaviour and skill gaps to create better performance and positive cultural change.

“Just wanted to thank you again for an interesting day yesterday.  I wasn’t looking forward to it as I assumed it would be the usual dry and dusty approach of legal jargon, documentation and dotting the i’s, and crossing the t’s.  Instead it was something different and more aligned with what vendor management can be (and covering areas Boral ICT are seriously challenged with at the moment).”
