Training Needs Analysis (TNA)

“When solving problems dig at the roots instead of just hacking at the leaves.”

In today’s workplace, competency has become the buzzword, and every organisation is hunting for a competent workforce that will drive it towards a progressive future. A training needs assessment is the only way to verify and validate the need, focus, scope, and target group for a training program. We can rightly presume, with a proper analysis and implementation, (which go hand in hand) we can make every employee happy and highly productive. Training need analysis examines the gap in performance from theory to its current state.
