A TNA considers the skills, knowledge and behaviours that you or the people who work for the organisation need, and how to develop them effectively.
Training needs analysis is ideally undertaken at 3 levels (organisational, team and individual). These three levels are interlinked, and using this structure will help ensure a balanced analysis that takes into account the strategic picture as well as the specific needs of individuals. Our professional team can carry out a training needs analysis involving a range of depths and sophistication. This can include a full three level analysis of all jobs or an organisational analysis can be conducted and supported by samples at team and individual level.
The outcome of the training needs analysis will enable the creation of a robust learning and development plan, linked to organisational, team and individual objectives.
- Once you have a strategic picture of your organisation’s objectives, performance and future direction, this can be reviewed from the perspective of the knowledge, skills and behaviours that can help your organisation to build on its strengths and address weaknesses.
- This usually means reviewing the competency needs within a team against the team’s own objectives. It will involve taking into account both the needs of individuals, but also anything that can help the department/team to work together as effectively as possible.
- Appraisal and supervision one-to-one meetings allow individuals to reflect on their own training/learning needs in relation to their work objectives and what additional skills and learning they need to improve what they do.
