Conducting Training Needs Analysis (TNA) Using the ADDI Model


Course introduction

How does your organisation decides what type of training programme to implement when you have done a training needs analysis?  Is the training plan link to business needs? Does your organization evaluate the effectiveness of training intervention when the training budget has been allocated? These are fundamental questions that an organization needs to ponder. 

Anyone tasked with this vital role needs to have a clear idea of performing this task for the organisation. Anyone who has acquired the knowledge and skills required to perform a proper and systematic training needs analysis will then identify the actual training needs to design and develop a training plan for their organization or individual line departments. The organization or the line departments have invested in training resources; it would then be necessary to evaluate the training effectiveness after implementing the training plan.

This 2 days training programme will equip you with the essential knowledge and practical skills to compile the required information to design a training plan for implementation and evaluate the training effectiveness using a systematic approach.
