Training Needs Assessment and Right Training

Posted on

The right training for you and your staff will increase the sum or range of skills, knowledge or attributes available to your business. But it will only make good business sense if it also improves your business’ performance.

Before choosing a type of training or a training provider, you should therefore align your training needs with your business strategy. The best way to do that is by carrying out a training needs analysis (TNA).

A TNA is a systematic way to investigate your business training needs and provide you with information needed to make good training decisions – the ones to make your business more successful. A TNA will allow you to:

* assess the current skills level of individuals in your business
* quantify the total skills available to your business
* identify the skills needed to take your business forward
* analyse the gap between your business’ current skills resources and future skills needs
* plan for bridging that gap with appropriate training

When carrying out a TNA, it makes good business sense to:

* consider the full range of training available, such as professional and personal training, and process-related skills
* consider the different levels at which training can occur, including organisational, departmental and individual levels
* distinguish between individuals’ training wants and the training needs of your business
* carry out a full cost/benefit analysis for each training need

Conducting regular TNAs will help you keep on top of your business’ training needs.

Philippine Seminars Tip: Gain more benefits from seminar training

Posted on Updated on

It cost time and money to attend seminars. How can you in future gain more training benefits from seminars?

1. Take a careful look at the seminar programme. Decide what you want to learn, set yourself definite learning goals for the training.

2. Before the seminar begins and during the first coaching interval, look out for like minded people. Ask them why they come here. What are their interests? By cooperating with others, you can together induce the seminar or conference leader to train subjects that interest you to avoid unwanted subjects.

3. Take adequate notes, writing down brief headings and key points will ensure concentrated listening. You can recap on the training material at any time from the notes you have made.

4. On a separate sheet of paper write down any ideas that come to you for improving your own work, whether during a lecture training or the discussion.

5. Buttonhole the seminar leader. Tell him about an important problem and ask for his thoughts on it. The speaker will feel flattered and you will get some advice free of charge.

6. Throughout the seminar try to make and maintain contact with other participants. Profit from the experience garnered by your colleagues. You may ask where they find new salesmen or what system of commission payments do they have. Any sales manager will be glad to speak from experience and you will learn something.

7. Make use of the attendance list. Exchange visiting cards, email addresses and telephone numbers. Make a note of the private and business addresses of those other seminar  members with whom you would like to keep in touch. After your return, send leaflets about your company or small gifts to interested people. This will facilitate future contacts.

8. The very next day after your return, begin evaluating the information gained from the training or the seminar. Report to management and to other staff about the seminar or conference and discuss with them any appropriate action. Write down two lists, one for immediate action and another for longer-term measures that you would like to take.
