Comprehensive needs assessments are the foundation of successful training program design, development and delivery. Needs assessments (Gap Analysis), are a method of determining what training is required to improve productivity, work quality, and safety and environmental practices. The final recommendation provides our clients with a complete analysis of current and future training requirements in relationship to the job description, to assist in the development and training of the client’s personnel for an effective and efficient operation of the company’s business.

Our methodology incorporates a rigorous review with the client’s technical, field operations, human resources and management groups to gain an understanding of the organization’s current and future business plans and the expertise required to implement the objectives. The initial assessment is followed by a task/job analysis for each job position and identifies the skill sets required by personnel in each position to achieve the objectives. These are then compared to the existing skill sets/levels to identify any gaps between actual performance and required performance. This serves as the basis for designing a training program, developing a schedule and an evaluation grid.

We have conducted training needs assessments on behalf of many governments, industry and international aid agencies.
