This is a two-day programme for executives and managers with the responsibility of identifying and developing training needs as part of the organisation’s overall staff skill development plans.The primary focus of this course is to provide you with practical knowledge and skills in analysing the training needs for the staff. The techniques and methods used in developing a Training Needs Analysis enables you to plan and channel resources towards the designing of an effective staff training development and work improvement plan.
Training and development activities are pivotal for the effective performance management of employees. The primary purpose of conducting training is to assist people to be more effective in their jobs. However, many times it fails to address the specific needs of an organisation, department or staff. The implementation of training and development activities should be based on the critical needs of an organisation. Therefore, Training Needs Analysis (TNA) is an important step in assessing the current and future requirements of an organisation. It should identify the KSAO (Knowledge, Skills, Abilities, Other Characteristics) deficits, determine who requires training and development programmes, as well as the type of training programmes required.
