Course Overview

Training is looked at as a cost by most of the organisations because there is no clear picture as to why there is a need for training, who needs to be trained, what needs to be addressed via training, what skills need to be developed, and how the success of training will be measured.

When not done right, this obscure picture impedes the success of an intervention thereby leading to a setback and disbelief in the efficiency of learning and development in driving change.

Successful organisations on the other hand clearly define the desired state (what does the goal look like), then assess the current state in terms of capabilities i.e.

Knowledge, Skills and Abilities (KSA’s) and then look at the gap and arrive at a need to bridge the gap by undertaking the right approach, one of which could be training.

This process centred approach ensures that the training is not a checkbox activity or whims of someone in the management, but a calculated step taken to help the organisation navigate and reach the desired state faster in an effective manner.

This Zoe training course will empower you in understanding the importance of right training need analysis, how to conduct one for expected outcomes, what questions to ask while arriving at a training need, templates/ format to use, who all to be involved in conducting TNA, reports & usage of TNA to curate a right training program for maximum impact.
